Welcome back to Monday with 2 Link-ups & a Winner

Well...welcome back to Monday. Oh, how too fast does this day of the week come around... Especially since I took off from work all last week...YAY! Unfortunately I haven't been feeling so well while off, but OH WELL, I sucked it up and enjoyed what time I could while I was off with some crafting.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog - Challenge Me Monday - Holiday Card

It's another exciting Challenge Me Monday at FCCB. This week the design team was asked to create some inspiring Holiday Cards.

Here is my card....

I used Winter Frolic to cut the tree limb, the gingerbread people, and the sentiment. The limb is at 4", the sentiment is at 2" , and the gingerbread people are at 1" as a border. I used the Gingerbread cart to cut the house and the candy canes. The candy canes are at 1/2" and the house is at 4". I used my white gel pen to do some stitching.

On the inside I used these super stamps from Sweet N Sassy Stamps . I used recollections ink (which I do not really like - this was my first time stamping with it - but I'm not impressed). The colors were Chestnut and Ruby.

Now, it's your turn to hop over to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and link-up your Holiday card. Remember it needs to have at least 1 cricut cut ;0)

Made Especially 4 You Challenge Blog - Easy as 1, 2, 3

It's time for another challenge and winner over at ME4Y. This week the DT was to make an inspiration using 3 of something. You can use 3 different papers...3 different embellishments...3 different colors.

Here is my card. I used 3 different papers.

The stamp is from 'Tis the Season from My Craft Spot .

This week's sponsor is K&K Designs. So head over to Made Especially 4 You to link-up your creations.

I used the Card Patterns sketch 143, this week's challenge sketch. I'm gonna link my card up over there, too. I'm also linking-up at Robin's Creative Cottage . The challenge there is to make your card have something sparkly on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I am super enjoying all the OUTSTANDING blogging friends that I am making.

Now....the moment you have all been waiting for...how mean of me to make you wait through 2 posts! HAHA.

You, my friend, are much better at thinking out of the box with Challenges than I'll ever be -- I love how you turned the Card Patterns 143 on its side and used the ornaments to hang below your paper to follow along the sketch. Too cute, well done!

Extra share of kisses xxoxxoxxoxxoxxoxxoxx, my friend, hoping you feel better soon. GOOD FOR YOU for being able to craft while feeling crappy. You're a better monkey than I!

Feel better soon!
