Good evening everyone!  Today we had a SUPER productive day!  The hubs and I were able to get lots of stuff clean and I got lots of cards made!  I've been mass producing my Christmas cards (those will be shown in another post!), and I also had a little time for challenge cards too!  I had a lot of fun creating this very homey, cute card today:

I started with this adorable little Jenna stamp, and then I stamped over the stars with a tiny snowflake from a Lawn Fawn set to make it more of a winter card.  For the most part, this card is red, white and green, but I added a little splash of blue with her eyes and some stickles to the middles of the snowflake.  Here's a closer shot:
This card was inspired by the following challenges:
1. Tuesday Throwdown #26 - Buttons and Bows
2. City Crafter Challenge #31 - Cards with Small Children
3. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #80
4. Etsy Inspired Challenge #115 (Queen of Tarts Cakes) using the colors from the picture below on the right:
As Thanksgiving is approaching, I'm getting more and more ready to embrace the holiday spirit!  There's lots to do between now and Christmas, but I'm super excited for it!  =D  I've also been thinking lots about how absolutely lucky I am to have such great friends and family, and so much awesome support for this blog!  Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and inspiration, you are all a blessing to me!  =)

And on that note, have a wonderful week!  =)
