Three for Thursday

Since Christmas is over, I find I have more time to play challenges, so I made 2 cards for 3 challenges today. First up is the SCS313 sketch challenge. For this card I used an adorable free digi image called Furry Freddy with Flowers that I d/l from SpydersCorner. I know the picture didn't capture it very well, but the red panel is a very high-gloss, striped, embossed piece of card stock I found on a recent shopping trip. The white panel is from the BG white stack, and the black border was done with a new EK punch I just got. The heart borders are stickers from Just-a-Peel......the outline portion on the right, and the tiny inside hearts to the left. I colored the image with Copics, added stickles to the flowers and hearts and the sentiment is by SU!
This card is for the CCMC131 challenge to "Let it Snow" along with the sketch challenge from this week's OWH Sunday Challenge #49. This is the first time I've played along with Create with Connie & Mary, but I liked the fun challenge this week. It's been months since I played along with an OWH challenge, but most of my cards still go to that organization even if I don't get time to do the challenges.
Again, I used another free digi image I d/l from SpydersCorner. This one is called "It's Snowing Kitty." I needed to add to my stash of birthday cards so this is a perfect image for a winter greeting card. I used a plum colored scrap of BG dp for the top panel and embossed it with the Swiss Dots ef. The image was colored with Copics and embellished with stickles. I added some Geo sparklers to the lavender snowflake punches for a little shimmer. The black border was done with a SU! punch and the sentiment was done with SU! oval punches. The sentiment was done with clear mini stamps.
I hope you're all having a super Thursday! Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a few minutes of your day with me :)
