Announcing My Candy Winner and 2 cards

Today is the day that I announce the winner of my blog candy. I also have a couple of cards to share with you so please scroll down a little further to see those. The cards are also entered into some challenges which are linked up below too.

Thank you to everyone that joined in the OSCC blog hop and to those of you that entered my candy draw. I'd best announce the winner without further ado.

That's you Doreen! Congratulations!
Please contact me at the e mail address on my profile and I'll sort out sending the goodies out to you.

Now onto my cards for today. The challenge this week at the One Stop Craft Challenge is to use embossing (any type of embossing you like). So I made a couple of quick cards. The first one has the tree embossed in disco black embossing powder. The tree is from the Papermania Joyeux Noel set and it is a set that I love using at Christmas.

This second card has both dry and heat embossing on it. All the stamps used on this card come from Waltzing Mouse.

I'm entering these cards into the following challenges:

Cards for men - Anything goes as long as it's male
(the top card makes a great male Christmas card)
C.R.A.F.T. - Dry Embossing
(the second card)

Polka Doodles - Quick and Easy Christmas Card
(both cards were really quick and easy to make)

Winter Wonderland - Sing a Christmas Carol
( Card 1 "O Tannenbaum", Card 2 has the words on it! - not quite a carol but a Christmas song nonetheless)
Kreative Stempelfreunde - Favourite Stamps
(Card 1 - my favourite Christmas tree stamp, Card 2 My favourite 'new' stamps)

Really Reasonable Ribbons - Winter themed - blue, silver, white
(The second card - the silver is on the edges of the labels and mat)

Dutch Dare - Clean and Simple
(Card 2)

Drunken Stampers - Before Copics
(Both cards)

Speedy The Cat - A Holiday Card
(Both cards)

365 Cards - Day 248 Ad Inspired
(Card 1)

Don't forget to take a look at what the OSCC design team have come up with this week - and to see if you are one of the winners of the blog hop.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

Oh, Sharon, what beautiful cards they both are! The one with several layers so attracted my eye that I thought: I bet I could do that if I really tried. And I hope to try one of these days. Thanks for the awesome inspiration pieces.
