2 more cards with Jane's Doodles + 2 more

Happy first day of December, everyone!! Can you believe it's December already??!! Where did November go? First October vanished, then November just slipped by me!!?? I am soooooo behind on my holiday projects!!! Arrrrrg!!!

Here are two more cards made with lovely digital images created by Jane. You can find her cute images at Squigglefly.

This is Mr. Snowman. Or in this case, I meant to make it "Miss Snowoman" by adding some swirls and dots on her belly!

I used paper from this free digital kit from Two Peas. I also colored Miss Snowoman using the colors that matched this digital kit.

Here is the adorable Big Boned!! How cute is she? She is a "she" here since I made her in pink felt...

I printed the image out on plain printer paper and just pinned it on the felt while I cut her out. I cut her body out first then used the same template to cut the head out. I then added stitches around the image to give her a little more definition since there were no black outlines anymore... I also tilted her head a bit when I sewed her head and body together!

Here is a card I made for last week's "trimmings" challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog. I was happy that I finally used some scraps out of my scrap bag... =) This week's challenge is "Holiday Tags." Please come and join the fun!!

I made this card for the "big ribbon" challenge at the Cards blog and was so happy to find out that it was featured in the Challenge Gallery!! I love this big stripe-y ribbon from The Ribbon Jar and thought that it was perfect for the challenge!

Thanks for sticking around for the long post! Hope your December is off to a great start!!
