Merry Monday #51 & Freshly Made #75

Finally, I’ve made a card from scratch!  I am almost fully recovered from the flu or a bad cold, or a sinus infection, or maybe all three!  It took forever to get well, and I’m almost there!  No naps today!!  I’ve been so exhausted, just staying awake all day was a chore:(

Anyway, thanks for staying with me:)  I am going to enter this card into two challenges:  Merry Monday #51  & Freshly Made #75.  Freshly made is a sketch challenge, here is their sketch this week:

FMS Final 75-001Merry Monday is a tic tac toe challenge:

MM#51I used the sketch and the middle row, Punches, Digital and Cute.  Here is my card for you to decide:

Half-fold Card1My punches are all snowflakes, several different ones, mostly Martha Stewart.  My image is digital and I believe very cute! 🙂  Pre-colored digital image is from Fred She Said called, Emma the Hugger.  The set comes colored, un-colored and with several sentiments, including the one I used.

The red snowflake paper is also FSS, Christmas Papers 1 – 2009, it comes in several colors.  I used some red gems on my snowflakes, and some sparkle on the fur of Emma’s hat and coat.  I used Stampin’ Up! Basic Black for the background and behind my snowflakes.  I used SU Real Red behind my sentiment.

This is a simply made card.  Basically cut, punch, glue and embellish.  People always think I’m coloring these beautiful images, but Tracey over at Fred She Said, does all the work for me;)  Of course, her images also come in black and white so you can use your imagination to color if you like:)

Be sure to visit the Fred she Said blog, you can follow the blog and get updates on new products and contests!  Also pop over to Merry Monday and Freshly Made to see what everyone else is making, you can also enter your own cards! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  Hope to see you again soon:)
