Christmas and Birthday Card Challenge

There is another new challenge blog, and me being one thats not on the ball I missed the first challenge last week, (but being me I did it anyway just for me to catch up), The challenge is set on Mondays and the addy is:- http://www.christmasandbirthdaycards.blogspot.com/ Plus this week there is a call for a design team so some of you ultra talented ladies may want to take a peek!.
So on to the cards I made for challenge #2 following the layout which I will use again and again! CHRISTMAS
I used a pb stamp and painted it with h2o's, I added some stickles to the hat. I used the cuttlebug snowflakes folder for the two panels and some ribbon and scallop for the behind. I punched some snowflakes and added a bit of stickles to the centres, the sentiment is hero arts and I stamped and heat embossed it with black powder. I really like how it ended up.
BIRTHDAY
For the birthday card, I used paper from the all dressed up stack and added the panels after using the swiss dots folder. I used the princess folders for the word and the crown and added them to the card, I used a little mulberry paper some ribbon and some flowers, another card I am pleased with.

And last weeks just for me!

Hi Joey! I haven't been 'around' much as things have taken a busy turn once again - but wanted to stop by and say hello! Love these cards and how motivated you are and on top of all these challenges! Hey, do you know why I can't click to enlarge your cards anymore? Didn't know if it is on my end or yours. I love looking at all the detail on your creations!! Well, off to see what else I have been missing over the past couple of weeks! :) Kristin
