New Year Productivity!

So, I thought I'd share a few cards that I created over the weekend.  These cards were created using Sketch #11 for the Scrap-Friendzy Sketch-A-Thon.  It was a sketch I created to use. 
These two cards are the last of the Christmas themed Thank You Cards.  I LOVE how the Pointsettia card turned out and the Penguin for my nephew turned out pretty cute too if I do say so myself.
Cricut - Joys of the Season - 2 pointsettia layers in red with leaves trimmed off.  One layer in green
Paper - From OLD OLD OLD Christmas stack
Miscellsneous:  Thanks - Studio G Stamp, Button from my stash, Ribbon from my stash, Chestnut Roan Ink
Image - Cute Penguin from Doodle Dragon Studios
Technique - Magic Colored Pencil
Same OLD OLD OLD Christmas Paper Stack
Cuttlebug - Candy Cane Stripe Embossing Folder (Thank you Jean!!)
Miscellaneous - Merry Christmas - Studio G Stamp, Colorbox Charcol Ink and Ribbon from my stash
These two below are movin' us into spring - can I tell you just HOW ready for spring I am??
Yesterday my commute was 5 1/2 hours to and from work - took me 3 1/2 hours to GET to work and another 2 to get home.  Yep, ready for the snow to go away and the flowers to start bloomin'!
Paper - Scenic Route - I think (more old paper from my stash)
Miscellaneous - Thanks - Studio G Stamps, Prima Flowers & Miscellaneous Flowers from my stash (tryin to make room for all the gorgeous Prima stuff that's coming out at Winter CHA!!!!), Brads & Ribbon from my stash as well as flat backed pink pearls (LOVE THESE)!
So, that's the creativity I was able to muster up lately. 
If you haven't had a chance to check out the Sketch-A-Thon at Scrap-Friendzy, please stop by and join us.  You won't be sorry.  There is so much fabulous inspiration not only from the sketches, but also the fabulous projects the Girlz are creating!
Hope you're having a great day!  Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!
Happy Craftin'!
