Gerda Steiner November Challenge

Hi Everyone!
Here I am the last day of November and wandering - "where did it go?"  I've been playing catch up since we returned from our Italy trip in October.  We were gone for 2 1/2 weeks and when we returned it was November! 
Well, this month's challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs features this Naught Puppy digital stamp.  If you join us this month, you'll get next months digi stamp for free!  I love her designs and love to play in her challenges.
Oh he is so cute! 
Here are my supplies I used to create this card ~
Gerda Steiner Naughty Puppy digital stamp
Prismacolor pencils
Tonic  Mini scalloped oval die set
Wink of Stella
Paper and ribbon were scraps I had in my crafty stash!

Thanks for looking and be kind!

Hi Everyone! 
 Here we go with a new challenge at Little Red Wagon - "It's Embossable!"  I am the hostess for this week and I want to see your paper crafts that are embossed.  It can be dry embossed or ink embossed - lots of options here! 
 I sorta simplified my card due to some medications that I am currently taking, my hands get very shaky! So I opted to bring out my Silhouette machine to help with that.   Can't wait to see what you create. Hop over to Little Red Wagon and see what the other girlfriends have come up with.  This challenge ends next Tuesday, November 22.  So let's do the "embossable!"
Supplies I used to create this card ~

Matte finish silver cardstock
I used Colette Hall's design Circle Flourish Standing Reindeer Ornament cut file
from the Silhouette Design store
Clearly Besotted "Sweet Sentiment" stamp
