I was commissioned by my mom to make a card for a friend. I hadn't yet used this image from Pure Innocence that I've had forever, so I decided to take it out for a spin. I used one of my favorite color combinations - light blues and browns. I especially like the way the boy turned out but like the overall composition as well. (I am also submitting this for DYSU's "Winter" challenge and The Stamping Boutique's Holiday/Winter challenge, Pollycrafts' Christmas Fun challenge, The Pink Elephant's Snowflake and Sparkle challenge, ABC's F-is-for-Frosty challenge, Digital Tuesday's Winter Wonderland challenge, 4 Crafty Chicks' Christmas (4CCC-68) challenge, Cupcake Craft Challenges' "Don't look at the light" challenge, The Paper Variety's Anything Goes challenge, Aud Sentiment's Winter Holiday Sentiments challenge, and Sweet Stampin's Sparkle and Bling challenge.)

I made the matchbook cider holders below for people at work. No stamping involved just lots of laborious cutting! I taped the cider packet in at the bottom of the matchbook for easy removal.
These kinds of creations always tear at my heart because I know most of them go straight into the trash can. Oy! What's a crafter to do when she can't reclaim them and pull off the "valuables" for re-crafting?
Papers: green (Core'dinations), Snow Much Fun (Three Bugs in a Rug)
Misc.: noneAnd a final thought about the holidays, even though I do not celebrate Christmas.
