Winter Fun from Crackerbox Palace!



It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing two square winter cards I made with stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning are below and now you have even more choices of what you can win!
But first- the winner of last Thursday’s blog candy is                                               Betty!   Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog: ”Love the cards especially the flowers on the red and green card they are such an inspiration to we who have just started to do cards in 2012.
Betty, please email me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want (see your options below), so we can get you the stamps you have won.
The funny fellow featured in the card above just cracks me up. This card would be perfect to send to someone like my sister who winters in Arizona. I stamped him and did some coloring and paper piecing, then cut him out with a circle Nestabilities die. I sponged the edges and placed him on a grey square card under a strip of snowflakes (Martha Stewart border punch.) The sentiment is perfect for this picture and was stamped and cut out with another nestie die. I added a few extra snowflakes to complete the card. 

My second card features a darling snowman duo all wrapped up. I left their wrap white because I was thinking it was an igloo. But now I look at it again, it is a wrap and could be any color you want to make it. Once again I did a little coloring and cut out with a Nestabilities circle die, layering onto a scalloped circle. The paper is a fun flannel or sweatshirt look two sided paper by We R Memory Keepers. I did a little stitching with my Scor-bug and a thin black marker and added the sentiment to complete the card.
So would you like to win the stamps featured on one of today’s cards or your choice of another CBP stamp? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:
Vicky or Karen will post a card or two every Thursday on both blogs. All you need to do is to leave a comment on either blog and if you leave a comment on both blogs you will have a double chance to win. We hope you also want to 'follow' the blogs.
