Snowball Fight

Note- I appreciated that one visitor notified me none of my links worked. Not sure what happened but I just redid them. So... if they are not working, please note that in a comment. Thanks. 

For this week's challenge at QKR Stampede, I made a card using a Eureka digi image (ES-digi3204 Bear in Scarf Digital Stamp) that you can find at Stamp On It 
I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a white gel pen. Had fun using some scrapbook supplies [patterned paper, snowflake punches and metal sentiment tag] to spotlight the cute little snowball launcher. The final bit of bling was added with a snowflake cut from an upcycled holiday card. The inside sentiment it a favorite freebie from TLC Creations

I won 10 free images in Bugaboos Christmas Challenge and this is one of the sweet images that I rescued from my very large wish list. It's named "Snowmen Snowflakes Collage" and was fun and easy to color. Of course, I needed to complicate things by cutting the squares out… mainly because of ink bleed… but I liked the result. This is the last strip of this elegant lace from my mom's stash [but I have tons more of other types of lace so no worries.] I used this lace because I thought it looked a bit like icicles, a perfect fit for a snowy card.  The Hello die cut is from a packet of misc items that I purchased from Joannes and the inside sentiment is a favorite digi from QKR [Q-digi16108 Thinking of You, you can find it at Stamp On It]  One reason I like this sentiment is that it gives me a reason to use one of my beloved puffy heart stickers [from a pack I found at Walmart that contains 113 assorted puffy hearts  for just 99 cents!] Am entering the card into Bugaboos current BINGO challenge, using the items in the last column for a Bingo- Bugaboo image, lace and blue.

Had fun using a past freebie from Gerda Steiner for this cute card. [A few freebies are available on the site. Others are sent out occasionally in their newsletter. Find the freebies and sign up for the newsletter here ] I remembered making an easel cookie card a while ago that I really liked, so did a bit of checking and found it hereI  sketched a large circle that would fit on an A2 sized card onto a scrap of kraft cardstock. Added an uneven "edge" and sketched a few chips to make the circle into a cookie. Lastly, added a bit of texture with a tan marker, then used markers in several shades of brown, and a white gel pen to bring the yummy chocolate chips to life. The sweet little mouse didn't have a tail that was showing, so I added one swirling off to his left side. Isn't he adorable [and I'm not a lover of mice... the real ones I mean.] 
The sentiment is from a Tiddly Ink's sweet set named "Cookie Bugg and Extras." [available on sale right now for just $1.50 here]
Am entering this is several challenges including Simon Says Monday's "Party Time" theme. At our house, warm cookies are a reason to party... especially warm out of the oven with milk. Yummmmmy.
