Christmas Card Challenge Week #7

This is my 2nd post for today, scroll down to see who my blog candy winner is. Thanks!

Every week, I'm making 2 Christmas cards, so by the first week of December 2009, I will have 104 cards already made. If you play along with me, send me your links and I'll put them in my post. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword SCCC7.

Last week I challenged you to use liquid applique on your cards. I only picked it because I love using it as snow and fluff.

For week 8, I am going to challenge you to make square cards. If you make them 4 1/4 x 4 1/4, you can still mail them in a regular card envelope and not have to pay more.

This week I actually made 2 totally different cards. The first one is with one of my winter Tildas.

Paper: Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Stamps: Waiting Tilda, Sled, Sentiment is CTMH
Snowflake Punch, Crystal Stickles, CTMH Brads, Buttons, Copic Markers, and Liquid Applique

I got these cute hedgehog images from Wish RAK. Aren't they just adorable?!?

Paper: Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Stamps: Penny Black, Sentiment is CTMH
Snowflake Punches, CTMH Brads, CB Snowflake Embossing Folder, Copic Markers, Crystal Stickles, and Liquid Applique

Hope you all have a great Sunday!
