A day of cards

Hi everyone,
Today is going to be a card making day. I've played along with two challenges and later I'm making Christmas cards for a friend of mine. She's not well and falling behind. So my daughter and I are helping here out.
Yesterday I made her 12 cards and today I'm making 12 more.
So for the challenges. I'm playing along with Sunday Stamps and Try Stamping on Tuesday.
I'm going to Start with Try Stamping on Tuesday. First I want to thank them for picking my card last week for challenge #94. It's an honor. Here is this weeks Sketch challenge.

 This is a great sketch Jenn. Here is what I came up with.

I just got this stamp set. It's been on my wish list since the new book came out. But the mini catalog had so much must have stuff in it that I had to put the wish list on hold. Boy could I ever spend some money.....
Here are my Stampin' Up supplies
card stock- soft suede, baja breeze, and whisper white
DSP- twitterpated and comfort cafe
stamp sets- serene silhouettes and curly cute
I also used a scrap of soft suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon and beautiful wings embosslits.

I put some tiny little pearls in the centers of my butterflies. And rounded the corners with the round corner punch. I think it came out pretty cute

My next card is for Sunday Stamps. Back to Christmas I go
Monica has a great sketch for us to play with.

I don't know how I ever lived without this snowmen stamp. It's just so cute. Except for my sentiment all my supplies are Stampin' Up.
card stock- cherry cobbler and whisper white. I should of used very vanilla but I didn't want my snowmen to have the yellowish tint.( you know why  you should never play with yellow snow  yuck )
DSP- festival of prints
inks- cherry cobbler and basic black
also used small oval punch and matching scallop punch and my markers.

I have one more card to show you. It's one of the cards I made for my friend Pat's collection.

Ain't they sweet!

Well I hope you liked my cards please stop back again real soon

Cute cards, Karen. I like the butterflies on the top one and I like the papers you've used for our Sunday Stamps sketch - they suit that little bunch of snowmen all tangled up with lights! Thanks for playing along with us at Sunday Stamps!
