QFTD34, Free for All F4A37, My Time to Craft, Creative Cottage Challenge Blog

Whew! I'm in such a rush today. Have family coming to visit tonight an for the weekend so I need to be doing other things. But, I just had to make a card today for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers, Michelle aka Shellapoo. What a very special person she is. She is stricken with MS but finds time to send lots of cards to chemo kids. What a wonderful mission in life. Since she has been unable to make cards for a while due to her disease, we are case-ing her gallery and making lots of cards to send her to mail to sick children and sympathy cards for family members who have lost their children. Michelle will be so delighted and appreciative.

My card is also for Splitcoaststampers Free for All, F4A37 'Tail Waggin' Greetings'...something with a tail. I made my little doggie with an Out of the Box technique. His little tail barely sticks out. LOL

Santa's Helper - 4 challenges

It's the Stampin B's Design Team challenge #83 and Lois aka clownmom gave the challenge to use an animal in a die cut. Well, I found a way to make this into a Christmas card, naturally. I am trying to get my list narrowed down. I think this little popped up Santa's Helper is so cute and must be checking out the skies to make sure it is clear before take off...he is certainly looking skyward.

Snowflakes - Challenges

It's been a few days since I have posted a card. I had to do some things beside crafting and I was anxious this morning to get in the craft room and get a Christmas card made. I am late for the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper challenge, FS195 but want to honor CheryQuiltz with a case of her card here.
I used different punches, stamps, etc. but kept her sketch. I didn't have Cheryl's stamps but my sister had just given me this set that I love. I had to make larger circles but I like it just the same.
