My Favorite Challenges

I'm playing in a couple My Favorite Things challenges today.
The first is this week's sketch 304.

Today I got a chance to play with the new MFT Cooler With You Card Kit, it has so many cute images!  The background was stamped with the Garden Flourish BG and I used the Double Stitched Oval Stax Die-namics to cut out by snowy scene.  The snow was created with the Snowfall -Horizontal Die-namics, the hills with Card Kit, and the birch is from the Birch Tree Die-namics.  The snowflake accent was made with the Let it Snowflake, Vintage Buttons, and a drop of Nuvo Gloss White.  The greeting is from the Cool Day set on a tag from Blueprints 18

The second challenge is a color challenge.

The large panel was cut out with the stitched square from the Blueprints 8 Die-namics and stamped with the Lined Up Dots BG.  The center circle was cut out with the Zig Zag Stitched Oval Stax, and the scene was made with Snowfall -Horizontal Die-namics, Snow-Capped Mountains, Winter Trees, and Stitched Whimsical Waves. I added a flower made with Modern Blooms stamp set, Deer Friend Die-namics, and Leafy Greenery.  The image and greeting are from the Deer Friends set.

I'm participating in the My Favorite Things Sketch 300 this week.

I needed a birthday card for a family friend, so this sweet llama really fit the bill.  I started with a background of Grout Grey and stamped the background with the new Lined Up Dots Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment ink on Steel Blue cardstock.  The images and oval background were cut from water color paper, the background was water colored and the llama and cactus were colored with Copic markers.
