Card Fever - 3 different Challenges

Well I've gone a bit challenge crazy in a bid to try and get some cards made, and here's what I've managed so far....
This trio's inspiration came from the STAMP SOMETHING! challenge this week which is SNOW.

I used DecoArt snow writer to add dimensional snow to the lamp-post and tree. The star and edging is copper leafed, and i used some acrylic snowdrops to give the sentiment an extra edge. The snowman was stamped onto and cut out of Grungeboard, with a Cuttlebug embossed background which was sanded to highlight the design. {the stamps are by Paperbag Studio - Artistic Stamper & Rubbernecker}
................................
The next challenge was PENNY BLACK SATURDAY, WK#26 - sketch by Beth.

I was really unhappy with how this card was shaping up but it all came good in the end .
{All papers used were DCWV rose tinted Christmas and the PB stamp is Waving Santa.}
...........................
And finally i had my Dad's birthday card to make and found December's sketch #2 over @ SO SKETCHY, it was actually for a 12x12 page but i used it anyway as i liked the design, and i did keep the card 6x6. {all papers were Artic Frog}

Right, i must crack on as i have a whole load more cards to try and plow through, thanks for stopping by, & come back soon!
