Just as each snowflake is unique, I want children to know they are each special and unique in their own way. This card for Send A Smile 4 Kids expresses that sentiment.
I used non traditional Christmas colors because the hospital it goes to can use it anytime during the winter. The base is SU's Lemon-Lime Twist. The pattern papers are from a Cricut pad of "Frozen" theme paper found at JoAnn's for half price. The snowflake is die cut from a green sparkle also by SU. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.
The sketch is taken from CAS(E) this Sketch!
And coincidentally, the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches is so very close

Tuesday Twofer

Today I made 2 cards for 2 challenges.
Darnell's Twofer challenge with the added theme Wreaths
And using Tuesday Morning Sketches
Wreaths aren't usually diamond shape so I took liberties with the shape in the sketch.
One is a Christmas wreath hanging over the mantle
On both, I used the Wonderous Wreath set from a few years ago by Stampin" Up! and punched flowers. The sentiment is from a word set also by SU. The brick paper and the  "mantle" strip are from my scrap box.
I know it is just beginning winter season but I am already longing for Spring. The older I get the less I like cold weather. My twofer is a spring wreath hanging on the back fence.
The sentiment here is from Newton's Nook. I added a strip of grass paper from my scraps at the bottom of the fence. The "fence" paper is from a pad by Ms. Sparkle at JoAnn's.

Penguin Choir

These adorable penguins are practicing for time to go caroling.
The designer paper is some my friend gave me. She found it at a yard sale. She is always on the lookout for craft supplies. Great friend!
The penguins are from Lawn Fawn, colored with Stampin" Blends and fussy cut. I was able to squeeze the sentiment between the music staffs to look like words to the song.
This is for 2 challenges.
