Simple cards, little snowmen

Hello all! I hope you are all well? Today, I would like to show you little cards I made, using cute little snowmen. I actually wanted to make several simple Christmas cards and remembered my lovely teamie Lols using those for Quick and Easy cards. I made a dozen, I will show you at the end of the post what they are like... Then I saw the sketch challenge at Anyone For Anya and decided to make 2 other snowmen cards, almost the same as my dozen cards, but using the sketch given.

And close-ups

Stamps: Keep Cozy set - The Greeting Farm
Punches and dies: MS Arctic Snowflake punch, Artemio punch, CB Snowflake Die, Nestabilities (Labels One)
Viva Ice White Pearl Pen, Star Dust Stickles

The papers are freebies from Jak Heath, which you can find HERE and that I first saw on Tracy's blog, thank you Tracy!

Challenges I would like to enter:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - #20 Anything Goes
Dutch Dare - #93 Winter
Stamptacular Sunday - #91 Snow Much Fun

And here are my even simpler snowmen cards...

That's it! Have a great day and thank you very much for your visit!

Christmas Candy Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well and had a wonderful Christmas! Maybe you think Christmas is over, well it is not! My friend Samantha has Christmas Candy and to be in the chance to win, you need to show her something you have made for Christmas, but NOT a card! So here is my entry... My sons and I made some biscuits on Thursday, very simple biscuits but a tradition for our Christmas holiday... Some biscuits, actually not some but a lot of biscuits... always very nice when you start, not so nice after 2 hours in the kitchen LOL!

Bonjour! J'espère que vous allez bien et avez passé un bon Noël. Vous pensez que c'est fini, et non, pas encore... Mon amie Samantha a un challenge un peu différent (avec candy à la clé!) et vous demande de montrer quelquechose que vous avez fait pour Noël, mais pas une carte! Pour moi, c'est les petits sablés basiques, faits avec mes garçons!



Have a great evening, thanks for stopping by and see you soon! Bonne soirée et à très bientôt! Bisous,
Delphine xx
