SSS Flickr Challenge, Muse. CAS(E) This Sketch, Merry Monday

Hello again ~
I've been busy playing in my craft room, and being the challenge junkie that I am, I have a few cards to share ~

My first card is for the current SSS Flickr Challenge for the theme "What's New" (Mosaic Heart), and this week's challenge at Muse.

Anita Bowdin is our Muse this week, and I love how she added texture to her design with a background stamp. I used a PTI Impression Plate after I inked the panel behind the mosaic in the same colors that she chose. I also followed her CAS design. Here is Anita's fabulous card:


My next card is for this week's challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch. My dear friend Michele Ferguson created this beautiful sketch to inspire us:

And, here is my take on her sketch ~

I've been trying to learn how to create 'fluffy clouds', and was directed by Francine Vuilleme to her You Tube Channel for her Video Tutorial. By the way, check out HER BLOG if you haven't already...Swoon!!!
I used MFT's Cooler With You Card Kit and Copic Markers to color the bear and sled. The clouds were created with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. To show off the interactive component of this card, I played with the sled and took 2 more photos:


My last card is for this week's Challenge at Merry Monday. They would like us to use the word 'Noel' or to include a Scandinavian feel to our card.

Here is my card:

I used the Tim Holtz Festive Layering Stencil, and before it dried, I added gold EP, which I also used for the sentiment.

Thanks to Sarah, I would like to add this card to the Happy Little Stampers January CAS Challenge ~

That's it for me today...I hope everyone is having a great week ~

Thanks so much for stopping by.
