The Greeting Farm Guest Designer Monday

Happy Monday everyone! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around my house.   We had our decorations up in time for St Nick and put the tree up over the weekend.  I have stacks of boxes that UPS delivered during the week that need to be wrapped and we had our first snowfall yesterday (only about an inch though).  I love how a fresh coat of snow looks on the ground and on the trees, but truth be told, I absolutely hate driving in it!  If it could just snow in the grassy areas and not the streets/driveways I'd be happy ;)

Speaking of Christmas and snow, my first card features Holiday Anya II and a few snowflakes.  

Anya was colored with copics and I paper pieced her dress, ribbon and shoes, highlighting those with copics as well.  On the snowflakes I added some glitter for a little extra sparkle.  Since it is a Christmas card, it fits in with last weeks FFF challenge Christmas or Holiday Themed Card.  If you still have Christmas/Holiday cards to make, there is still a few days left to play in that challenge and we'd love to see them!

For this card I would like to enter the following challenges:
Creatalicious Challenges - Winter
Charisma Cardz - Christmas
Craft Challenge - Christmas
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Merry Christmas
Delightful Challenges - Christmas
Frosted Designs - On the 4th Day of Christmas - use 4 patterned papers
Fussy and Fancy - I Love Christmas
One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas Friends
Paper Play - Christmas is Coming
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Snowflakes
The Ribbon Girl - Christmas Projects

Now in a totally different direction....this card reminds me of summer time with the bright colors. 
I wanted to use last weeks DTT challenge of "It's a Rainbow", so I chose Twinkle Bean.  The "Beans" are really fun to give different colored hair to, and although I usually stick to blue or pink, I decided to go all out and color it in rainbow colors.  To keep the rainbow theme throughout, I stamped the background paper and colored the rhinestones in matching colors.  It's a bit different than what I'd usually do, but I think it's whimsical and fun!  There is still a bit of time to play along in this challenge (ends today), so if you have some free time, we'd love to see what you come up with!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:
Frosted Designs - On the 2nd day of Christmas - use 2 stamps (image and chevron)    

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
