Feeling like a Mad Crafter =)

I have 3 special cards to share with you today all in honor of OWH.  It's been hectic around here with a lot of handmade presents to be done.  I feel totally relieved to have finally finished a baby scrapbook for my brother.  I feel so challenged going from cards to scrapbooks.  It just feels like there's too much space and then not enough.  Well now that the gifts have come to an end I can get back to the card making. Phew!!
Isn't this guy just awesome!  He's a freebie for the OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge.  Dude Times Doodles generously donated him so go snag one up!  Nothing to special going on with this card.  I colored him with colored pencils since my Copic supply is embarrassing small.  The sentiment is SU Service and Sacrifice.  The ribbon and star brads are out of my stash and the camouflage paper is a special gift from my mom. =)
Valentine Defined
So I actually made this card for yesterdays OWH Holiday Challenge #1 but forgot to post it...ooops!  Well here it is anyway.  The technique used was can see it on the white piece.  I used the upcoming SU Valentine Defined set to stamp the flamingos.  The love tag is from the SU Tiny Tags set.  I finally ordered some liquid pearls but I wasn't very happy with how they turned out.  Still need some practice I guess!
I love you snow much!
This card was made for todays OWH Holiday Challenge #2.  I didn't think very much about the time it would take to mass produce but after a few hours I managed to make 9!  I've been really wanting to clear these snowman digis from my space and the challenge was the perfect chance.  I believe they are Bugaboo.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.  SU products used were the Petals-A-Plenty EF and the Top Note die.

Well I hope you've enjoyed stopping by and please feel free to leave comments...I always take a peak back!
Merry Christmas..Happy Holidays!
