Snow Day Challenges!!

It's a snowy day here in Maine, and what else would I do??? Pull out the Gypsy and create!! I made two cards that I will enter into some challenges....the first is a cute little birthday card....

I will enter this one into the following challenges:

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog: Emboss It!
SEI Challenge by Abby: Use the color PINK
Celebrate the Occasion: Anything Goes Birthday
Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge: Create A Critter
Wacky Wednesday at More Than Favors: Farm-Themed
Creative Sister's Monday Challenge: Emboss It!

(I messed up mildly on the hand-written sentiment....not sure if I'll re-do before I give it to someone, but it's ok for now!)

Cartridges: Create A Critter, Sweet Treats, New Arrival
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Cuttlebug folders: Happy Birthday, Swiss Dots, Bloom Dots
White Sakura Gel Pen
Martha Stewart Glitter Glue in Platinum
Black Embossing Pen
A bit of Pebbles chalk around the pig snout

My second card is a "thinking of you" card which my husband will give to a co-worker for a sympathy card. I will enter this in only one challenge:

Cooking with Cricut: Swirls and Twirls

Cartridge: Cindy Loo
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Cuttlebug Folder: Tiny Mosaic
Pebbles Chalk
White Sakura Gel Pen

Thanks for looking!!
