Now onto some challenges that I have been able to finish this week!

Here a few cards....

This first one is for the challenge over at Simon Says. ( We had to make a shaped card. I didn't want to make just the standard circle card this time, and I've seen these snow globes around on the internet for a while, and have been dying to make one. So I gave it a go. It took some work getting all the right sized pieces, but I love how it turned out!

This sympathy card was made for the Saturday sketchers ( challenge. I loved working with this sketch. I will definitely be using this one again!

I love Precious Moments, I think I got my love of these little critters from my mom! She used to draw them (or something very similar to them) all time for me. She made some that were at least three feet tall and had them laminated to decorate my bedroom walls when I was little. So you can imagine how happy I was to find a site that had them as free downloads. I downloaded them ALL!!! This card was made for the sketch challenge over at the Sweet Shop ( Yet another great sketch!

And last but not least we had to make a humorous card for the challenge at CES ( I don't know how humorous this card is, but it almost made my husband spit out his coffee when I asked him "Is it too late to be good?" While I showed him the picture! LOL! So I figured it was somewhat funny!

Well that is all for today! I am hoping to get in some quiet scrappy time this morning, as Jared is sleeping in, Anize is off on a sleepover and Jeff is at work! Yeah Me!!!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope to see some of you over at Scrapbook star with some submissions!
