Snowmen for Kids

I have finished fall and Thanksgiving cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids holiday cards for kids.
Trying to get some winter theme cards for the kids.
I have 2 --same image but different messages.

This stamp is from Newton's Nook. The left one I just colored 1 snowman because it says "snow one else like you". The other I colored the whole party.

My cards get distributed on the Midwest where kids are always excited about snow.

The Forest

I like to keep a stash of sympathy cards so one is available when the need arises.
The tree image is by Judi Kins and was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I did the forest in Basic Grey, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive all from SU. I stamped off one time first to give the more subtle effect. The sentiment is also SU stamped with the Certainly Celery. I stamped the tops of the trees on each end for a little more interest.
The inspiration is from the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches

2 Trucks

I have a twofer. (errrr make that a threefer) for Darnell's Twofer Challenge.
I had 2 cards made (get well and Christmas) and ready to post and then what? that says Harvest. Back to the craft table to do another one with the harvest theme.
So here are 2. One for harvest and one for Christmas.

And here is the original which started this process, because I needed a masculine get well card.
SU images: truck, tire tracks, tree, sunshine, snowflakes. falling leaves. SU Blender Pens for coloring.
LaLa Land: pumpkins and bale of straw which was cut down to fit truck.
Morning Star Stamps: get well sentiment.

Making progress on my holiday cards.  Cards come together so quickly when using a sketch.
Supplies are all from Stampin" Up! The letter dies are Tim Holtz.
Inside I did a greeting on the computer and glued a strip of the DP along the side.
The design is a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches
And while I have the idea in my head, a couple more:

Tropical Escape paper pack from Stampin' Up! has so many pretty patterns
The flowers are die cuts from SU Botanical Blooms. The sentiment is an old unlabled one.
