Seasonal sparkle with a little chill

I know I am not supposed to be crafting but I have been at the physio this morning, as I am feeling OK I thought I would make the most of it.... so I have a few cards to offer today. I have been really good last couple of days and have been just colouring images so I have used those and I have used chalks for this one... 1. for my 1st card I managed to cram in 4 challenges, 3 are online challenges and 1 is Squirrel my craft buddy's challenge we all take turns in setting a challenge for a group of us that craft online together in a group, Squirrels challenge is yellow, pink and blue and spring! ekkk! and I have used those colours in ink and chalks for make a master board which is Saturday Spot Light challenge this week I have chosen my card also for this weeks Secret Crafter for their challenge is 4 seasons my card is 2 seasons as we could do as many seasons on our project as we wanted and although we seem to get 4 seasons in one day lately so I have made my card to be winter/spring the blossom tree has some snow on it , and to wrap it up I have followed the great sketch from Papertake.
you should stop by the challenges when you get time as the DT cards are very inspiring on these challenges and I must say for this post and all my posts where I have used challenges they are great for inspiration. I had a couple of other challenges in my head I wanted to join in with and as I had coloured the images the putting the card together was a must you understand? it would be wrong? leaving them sitting calling to me to be made into cards or something. 2. sooooo for the 2nd card I have used Sketch Saturday's fabby sketch
I have to say I really like this one! circles yay! I also want to thank Cathy as she gave me these images when I saw her at the weekend, while we were at the bridal fair she popped in to see me. I love the white gen pen too its great for adding highlights and additional snow. 3. I think I got a bit over excited with the Bazzil card stock! te hehehee we have just started to get some in at the shop think you might be seeing a bit more of it too! te hehee on my cards that is! te hehee might not be any left for the customers at this rate if I keep buying it ha haa. I have used Create4fun's cool sketch for this one
My flower I have made with the some of the ribbon I have used across the card I used a needle and thread to gather the ribbon to make the flower and then a bead cap and brad as you can see, also one of those cute tree pins, I have hand cut the holly and the big bite cut the berries... Cathy thanks also for the aged mahogany tip! think that works well with a little black soot on Santa's coat etc. that's it three cards all with sparkle and some chilly snow.
