Challenge Cards for My Stash

Had a bit of laundry to do today so since the laundry area is near the stamp cave, I kept busy in two ways.....clean clothes and Christmas cards.  Hope you enjoy the fruits of one of my labors.
This card was done for the Twisted Sketches Challenge.  I used stamps from a set soon to release from Mark's Finest papers.  Kept it pretty simple....even refrained from adding brads...lol!!!!


This card was done with the Sensational Saturday Sketch Challenge.  I used a Flourishes set and a MS punch.

This third card was also done with a Flourishes set.  It was done for two challenges......The Christmas Card Challenge (inspired by the tree and colors of the season) and the Sentimental Sunday Sketch.

This next 'BLUE SANTA" was made for the Flourishes Challenge which, obviously, was to make a car using blues.  Sorry, Santa....lol!!  Again, I used a Flourishes set.

This last one was done for Sketch Saturday.  It was originally a squarish sketch, but I made it into an A-2 sized card.  The sentiment is from an SU set and I forgot to write down the company of the trees.  If you need to know, just ask in a comment. 
Thanks for stopping in to visit.  Hope you are having a sensational Sunday!!!

I think I'm FOREVER doing laundry in between everything....laundry and typing, laundry and card making, laundry and dinner...it never ends, does it? All your cards are beautiful. I'm especially fond of that Flourishes Santa. He has the SWEETEST face. :)

All of these are FABULOUS, Joanne!! I can't believe how much you got done. Every single one is a winner. That CAS card on top especially caught my eye. So clean and graphic. You used that sleigh bell beautifully :)
