Penguin Cocoa

For the first time, I am entering the Imagine That Progressive Challenge 12 (Free for All).  The image was free this month, so that new people could get started on the Progressive Challenge.

Again, for the first time, I made a 3 x 3 card.  When printing the Penguin Cocoa image, I guesstimated the size on the small side, so had to make a smaller card with him.  I heat embossed the back ground and put a little ribbon across top.  Easy peasy and ready for Christmas!  I didn't get the sentiments when joining this month, but I believe I will going forward.  I am looking forward to participating in this challenge.

Bobbing for Apples

This card was inspired by the From the Heart Stamps September Free Stamp of the Month and I {Heart} Sketches NO. 36 challenges. 

The September Free Stamp of the Month is called Bobbing for Apples.  I really meant to make this more Fall looking, but it came out brightly colored.  I didn't really have a choice - the colors do what they do sometimes.

This is probably the fastest card I have ever put together.  The I {Heart} Sketches NO. 36 sketch is straight forward and since I was running out of time today, I skipped having to think about a sentiment.  I love this sketch and will probably use it multiple times.

Merci Birdie

The image on this card is a Doodle Pantry digi stamp named Peacock Birdie, so I am entering this card in the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 38.  This is my second time using this digi because I love it so much!  Doodle Pantry has a Freebies section, if you want to join up with this challenge for a free stamp set.

This layout was inspired by the Delightful Inspiration I {Heart} Sketches NO. 34 challenge.  I am really enjoying participating in the The I {Heart} Sketches challenges.  It took me a few minutes to figure out how to add the circle aspect to the card, but I think I love the way it turned out!

I would also like to enter this card in the Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge #29 - Anything Goes.
