In November, Beccy's Place is celebrating the Fifth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. I hope to be able to complete many of the daily challenges, which will follow the alphabet plus a few extras thrown in. My goal this year is to place an entry for every challenge using only Beccy's images. I have many of her wonderful digi sets, plus there are MANY freebies on the Beccy's Place blog, so it is a real possibility. My second entry into the Month of Cards challenge is to be inspired by the letter "B." This sweet card should qualify as it features one of Beccy's freebies, an adorable little bear named Miss Penelope [find her here- beccysplace.blogspot.com/2009/11/printable-1_21.html] I like the look of colored image on kraft cardstock. I also liked paper piecing with holiday colored papers to add a festive touch.

I find I use digi images about 90% of the time. So was fun to dig out an old SU border set to make this mitten tag for the Monday Challenge at wecraftcards. But since I seldom use tags, I decided to attach it to the front of a card atop a strip of patterned paper.

This is the final card I made for the wecraftcards Crop. The Saturday challenge was to create a card that features a reverse image and also includes dots. I recently made a Scottie silhouette for a card and decided to make a few more of the little cuties for this challenge. Was easy to flip one by simply flipping my template in the opposite direction. Attached them to a card on which I'd stamped paw prints with an old SU stamp [the little toes are the dots] and added computer generated sentiments.
