happy winter ...

It's been so long since I've been able to play along with any of my regular challenges that I'm so happy that I've got some crafting done for the current Lawnscaping Challenge #20. I actually created two cards.  However, I didn't think the first card had enough paper piecing so I created another card today.  So I will be submitting my first card for the Wee Memories Challenge #73 which is called "Free for All".

I am sharing both cards, but only submitting one for each challenge.  Here is card #2 which I created today (LC #20).

Here is card #1 that I created yesterday (WMC#73).
The card takes me back to my childhood.  My parents always put our Christmas Tree on a table.  The table was made from the chimney in the Cozy Christmas set, which I've done before.  The tablecloth is made from velum, and I just had to add the cookies and milk with the note to Santa. 

I really LOVE how both of these cards turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ruza! Both of your cards look fantastic. Your paper piecing is perfect and I love your distressing too. I'm so glad you joined the Lawnscaping challenge. I also really love the rhinestones that you added to the tree on your second card. What fabulous details! Great work, as always. :)
