Holiday Card Catch-up {days 6, 7, 8}

What is it about the weekends that just makes it so darn difficult to find creative time?! I always go into the weekend with high hopes of spending several hours in the stUdio. Oh, well; it feels good to be caught up on my card-a-day's. So here they are:

Day 6 A little hand-made felt snowman sitting in a felt snowbank.
The snowflakes are heat embossed.
Day 7
I've had this snowmanfabric kicking around since my sister and I
went crazy one year with gifts in a jar topped with fabric covers.
I cut out the square and ironed it to a piece of Pellon fusible fleece
to give him a little quilted look. I sewed him to a mini card and frayed his edges.
The BG is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder,
and accented with some doodles with a Sakura glitter pen.
The checkerboard is also a piece of frayed fabric.
The snowman piece opens to reveal a photo and/or greeting.
Day 8

Taking a break with a simple, graphic card. Not too much going on here--perfect for mass-producing. I borrowed a color scheme from a card I made several years ago (Not Quite Navy, Ruby Red, More Mustard, and Old Olive). Just some punches, brads (with a smash of the hammer), and a stamped sentiment.

Well there you have it. Being caught up feels pretty good! Be back tomorrow with another one. Thanks for looking!
