What A Combination...Flowers, Anniversary & Christmas

I couldn't sleep last night so I spent some time crafting.  I don't know what possessed me to start Christmas Cards, but I found these little snowmen in my swap box and thought I would use them .  I have no idea who sent them to me.  I colored them with copic markers added stickles star dust glitter to the star, pom poms on the hats, the stars and outlined the heart too!  The paper has sparkles in the centers of each of the diamonds.  The paper is by Pressed Petals.  I have never heard of the company but the paper was pretty and very, very inexpensive.  I got 16  8 x 8 sheets for 1.99 at Archivers.  What a steal.  My first splurge in months.  LOL I cut them to fit some thick chip board squares ,adhered them and added them to the center of my card.  I didn't want to add other embellishments because I wanted them to pop on their own, so ended up with very clean and simple lines. 

It fits the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew  Sparkle n shine
My Time To Craft  Glitter and Glitz

The next card I made for my kids anniversary that will soon be upcoming.  I fell in love with this image and a dear friend stamped it up for me.  Thanks hun... also thanks for the flower shares too!  They are beautiful.  I know my kids are going to love it, especially my DIL...  Image ..Magnolia, colored with copic markers.  EK success leaf punch, swirls from sizzix die, background cardstock embossed using cuddlebug embossing folders and one for stampin up.  All other little doo dads are from my stash box. 
This fits the following challenges:
Magnolia Down Under  It Takes Two -- Both Edwin and Tilda
Fab n Funky Challenge   flower power. 

This was my fun card.  Love the bold colors.  Not my normal style, but I am trying to use bold colors more often lately.  I love them, but I am still afraid of them. 
This was colored with my copic markers,  Can you believe that I found the perfect ribbon that was hiding my my stash box?  I had no idea I had it... added the little heart charm and found I had the perfect friend card. 
It fits the following challenges  Color Theme  red, yellow, blue
YNS Challenge  bold, bright and summery colors
