The 2012 Christmas Card Challenge! March



Happy March 2012!

Has March come so soon?? The weather here has been unseasonably warm, and the daffodils and grape hyacinths are already in bloom!

Here is the March 2012 Christmas Card Challenge!
I hope you join in.

The theme for March is: Snow!
It usually snows here in March, so as a last homage to Winter who is quickly coming to a close here, Snow is going to be the theme.

Click HERE for the original post showing the rules and regs.
In short: Make 6 christmas cards with a snow theme, enter them here in the linky by March 21st, and hopefully YOU will will this month's prize!

Here are my cards for the March Challenge: Isn't he an adorable snowman?

I used my Stampin' Up markers to color Mr. Snowman, Christmas Red stickles to highlight the holly berries on top of the bird house, and Diamond stickles to fill him in because snow is so sparkly!!! He is covered with a dryer sheet to simulate snow, and the card base is stamped in Versamark with snowflakes as a background.


Click on the Linky to enter your cards! Please join in, and win some awesome Christmas themed prizes!

Cards and Things

Here are some of my latest creations... I got out the watercolors again, and had a good time playing with them, made some more cards for our Chinese project, and we also decided that we needed some birthday cards for the little ones!









This Elmo includes flocking - a new technique I've been playing with. SO easy, and so cute!!!
