Simply, 'Let it Snow'

Put together a few of these easy-peasy little cards for my canine rescue group but forgot to put them in the box before mailing for the Kritter Kringle Sale in a couple of weeks.  Just as well.........they sure fit the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of 'Let it Snow' and the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long 'Anything Goes'  challenge!!  And now I have a few extras for my own use!   Now off to make a 30th Birthday card for my sweet daughter-in-law!  Have a terrific weekend!!

Christmas Kitties

Have been doing up some simple cards for my animal rescue group HART and their Kristmas Kritter Sale and thought I would use the Friday Sketchers #129 for this one.  This is for all the cool cats out there looking for a warm home this winter. If you are considering a pet, think Rescue - it ROCKS!!!  I am also entering this little card in the following challenges:

Scrappy Frogs Christmas Card Challenge
Ellephantastic Red & Green Challenge

Dancing Maggies

When this stamp came out, I knew I had to have it!  It just screamed 'joie de vivre', let's have fun and boogie down!!  When the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog started this month with a pink and yellow challenge, it gave me a perfect opportunity to put these two out there. This was a fun stamp to work with and I can think of multiple uses for it.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Scrapping Retreat

Just got back from a wonderful weekend away with the girls at a scrapbook retreat in Niagara Falls, Ontario.  Michelle from Scrappin the Night Away did a wonderful job of organizing and hosting this event.  Great company, fabulous food, superlative accomodations and three days of scrapping made for a fun time.  While I was away, I came up with this little card to enter into Really Reasonable Ribbon's blue, white and silver Challenge #11 as well as the special monthly challenge at Just Magnolia which is 'Anything Goes'.  Got lots of cards done for my rescue group's Kris Kringle fundraiser next month, so all-in-all, it was a very rewarding weekend.  Have a wonderful week!
