Crazy4Challenges and Speedy's Friends

Crazy4Challenges -- C4C63
Hostess -- Cindy
Challenge -- Christmas Card
I created this card with this fab Emma set I won last week from My Favorite Things.  Isn't she just the sweetest winter wonder???  I think you can see what I did pretty much, but probably should tell you that it is Flower Soft that I used on the hat, muff, and boots.  The snowflake vertical panel is my newest MS punch.

Now be sure to go to the Crazies blog to see the winter creations of the rest of the team.  And....please, if you have the time, play along with us.

Speedy's Friends #29
Hostess -- Laurie
Challenge -- Snowflakes


Not much stamping on this one, but the sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers.  Kept this one simple, using the Spellbinders die,, a Martha Stewart Snowflake punch, as well as a small circle punch and a mini-snowflake punch as well. 

Now you really must visit the Speedy's Friends post to see the other 'flakes' ......I am sure there are fabulous flakes created by the team.  We would LOVE for you to play along with us.
