D is for Double Trouble

Hi Everyone! It is getting late on Sunday night here, and I am away on a field trip tomorrow so I am posting now. I am entering into the D challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog. The D is for Double Trouble challenge is to use 2 papers, and at least 2 embellishments and a digital image, but there isn't much time left. Here is my card for this challenge...

Oh and just I was typing this post I realized the digital image part and gosh darn it I used a stamp, a cute one by Cornish Heritage Farms but alas not a digi image (bad me) oh well it's another Christmas card done.

Oh and I have some exciting news, well for me anyways :) I have finally caught up with all of the challenges over at the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog and now have all of my cards done right through from A - D. Yahoo!! I know that these cards can not be entered but I just wanted to finish them for me and now I did. Here are the cards...

This is my card for the A challenge (Anything Goes)
The image and sentiment are from a Kim Hughes stamp set called 'Christmas Critters'. I stamped the moose on brown cardstock, then fun flocked his antlers and added some black enamel accents by Ranger to his nose. 

This card is for the C challenge (Clean and Simple)
For this card I did paper piecing for my very first time and it was fun! I stamped the images once on white cardstock, then on two different DP. The white cardstock is where I colored the tree stumps brown and the heart with the strap for the second tree. I cut the heart and strap piece out along with the other trees and glued it to the white piece that I stamped originally. I hope that makes sense. The stamp and sentiment are from a Kim Hughes stamp set called 'Heart Warmers'. 

Oh and the 'B' Challenge is the one other that I entered on time. You can find that card here at this post .

I hope that you all had a great weekend!! Until next time :)
