Playing some challenges today . . .

This week *Wink *Wink Ink is sponsoring the challenge over at the ONE STOP CRAFT CHALLENGE - Christmas Cuties and of course I just couldn't wait to play ... unfortunately time nearly slipped away from me.  WELL ... with it snowing today ... it's a GREAT time to craft and play!  So here's my CUTIE . . .

Other challenges I will be submitted this creation to are:

Karber Weekly Challenge - Digi Stamp & Sparkle
Stamps R Us Challenge - Holiday Cards
Woodware USA - Anything Goes
I Did it Creations Challenge - Surprise Me

* * * * * * * *

Another weekly challenge I enjoy is the Crafty Secrets Challenge over on SCS.  This week is a SHOW & TELL challenge ... that means you can make what ever you'd like ... as long as you use something Crafty Secrets/Heartwarming Vintage in your creation. 

I found these adorable snow-people in the Crafty Secrets Christmas Booklet and couldn't help but create this collage.  The snowy dp is from JoAnn's and I've added sparkle to my Martha Stewart Icicle border & snowflakes using Diamond Stickles.

Other challenges this card fits are:

Gingersnap Creations - Snowpeople
Stampavie and more - Snow
A Crafty Little Place Challenge - Anything Goes
My Time to Craft Challenge - Vintage Card
Paper Playtime Challenge - Christmas Carol Inspired (Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!)
The Crafty Pad - Snowflakes
Crafty Hos' Challenge - Snowman Inspiration Challenge
CES Challenge - Vintage Christmas

Thanks for stopping by today!  It's early evening here in N.E. Ohio, USA ... it's snowing outside ... and I've been invited by a neighbor to join her at the local "Holiday Tasting Party" this evening ... sounds like fun, huh!!

You'll want to be sure and stop back tomorrow!  JOAN'S GARDENS is having a HUGE PARTY and the GRAND PRIZE is worth $280.+ AND there are THREE other AMAZING prizes available!  Be sure to stop back and get involved ... you won't be sorry!!!

Happy Day All
