A Saturday of Fun

Well here it is a Saturday a nice sunshine day to do a challenge or two
                      I was able to connect with SIL Barb and she was doing this neat challenge

Less Is More --Jingle all the Way!

For this we would like to see some reference to any of these things.... bells, reindeer, Santa, elves, stockings, presents, decorations, Christmas songs/music/instruments...
                                                  in fact anything Christmassy!.... and also

I had been looking at The Friday Mashup

                                                                  this week's challenge is:
  • Create a project using "a Metal Embellishment (Staple, Brad, Grommet etc.)". 

  • Create a project using "Weather as your Inspiration" think Storms, Winter, Clouds, Rain, Sun, Warm Sandy Beaches. 

  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Weather inspired project with a Metal Embellishment".

  •                        so I joined in with Barb and combined the two challenges.

                                       this paper is so beautiful...I tried to do a close up so you
                                    could see the wintery storm and the trees in the background...

having Santa flying off and the little town below ...
                                       I used Memory Box Country Landscape for the town
                                          iodies - Die081-O for Santa and reindeer
                                      the paper is Bo Bunny from the Altitude Collection
                                                          sentiment Stampin Up
                                      I just gave the town a bit of color with my Tombows
                                   Have a great day and please stop by these challenges and
                                                            for sure stop bySIL Barb's

Simon Says Challenge--Thinking of You

Ok yesterday I got a bit of time and also did the same challenge has my SIL Barb
Thinking of You was the theme and anything goes for the card layout.
So here my take on the card and theme ...
I layered the flowers and fussy cut out another butterfly to
 highlight the one on the paper I used
I don't use sequins that much almost never ...
but I have seen my SIL's use them and how much it adds to a card
so I gave it a try on this card...what do you think?
The flowers are Memory Box Verona Bouquet
the paper is from Card Stock Collection
the sentiments used Verve Stamps.
Well off to try another card challenge ...
make sure to stop by SIL's Barb and Nina to see their awesome cards
they have been busy girls.
