Sparkle Creations Challenge #117: Use Felt

Hello everyone!  I am so sorry my Sparkle Creations challenge card is late!  I have been super busy with some personal matters so I totally forgot!

Anyway, the next two weeks, we have a felt challenge!  We would like to see FELT on your creations!

 I am trying to work on a few Holiday cards so I can send some out this year...hopefully!  lol  I used Snow Bunny Lucy on this card.  Sentiment is by Papertrey Ink.  Papers are by Fancy Pants, Saint Nicks.  This is an old stack.  I used Sparkle Fluff for the fur.

I am not a big fan of using felt on cards or any of my creations so I find this challenge difficult for me.  At first, I tried to use my snowflake die to cut out a felt snowflake but it wouldn't cut!  I searched through my sticker stash and found this old felt Santa's hat.  It doesn't really go with my card but oh well...

Hope you can play along with us!  You can find the challenge details on our blog!

Lately, I have been busy with pretty much everything...dentist and doctor's appointments, taking mom to EDD and SS offices; taking FIL to hospital for a colonoscopy, etc. Lastly, I was busy with cleaning our new house.  We just bought a house so you can imagine the process!  The house is in pretty good condition so we don't have to fix it a lot.  We basically painted it, cleaned it and changed some mini blinds and fixtures.  This is a rental house so if anyone is looking to rent (in the LA area, of course!), let me know!  We are placing an ad this week.

The Original Stamp show is the weekend in Carson, CA.  If you are going to be in the area, check it out!  I will be helping Lisa with her booth, The Craft's Meow!  Stop by and say Hi!

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Such a pretty card with your usual gorgeous LO! Love the non-traditional Christmas colors.

I have trouble cutting felt with die-cuts and am always begging people to tell me how they do it!! I bought very thin felt last year and am hoping to give it a try soon. Wishing us both luck with it, LOL!

This is adorable!! I love the yellow!! I know what you mean... sometimes a DT challenge that we are required to do can really mess up our mojo if it's not what we had in mind. Good job making it work!!

:) :) I saw your card @ Make It Monday!! I have some newly released products as candy on my blog if you are interested. Have a great weekend!! :) :)
