Today the Banana Split Sunday Challenge is called, "Are your Christmas cards mailed yet?" Obviously the challenge is to make a Christmas or Winter card. The prize for this weeks challenge is the stamp I used called Penny's Christmas Tree. I paper pieced the tree for a fun look. Be sure to check out the other bananas for different ideas on ways to use this cute stamp.

Today I took a scrap challenge from a blog at the Scrap Room. It is a monthly kit club I belong to and I just love their paper. I just discovered that they have a weekly challenge so I decided to give it a try. I have a whole bunch of scrapping to do for my nephews pictured here so a challenge was very helpful today. I used the Kennedy quote from the 2RB Oct/Nov Journaling set.

Today I made a card from the PCP sketch challenge. I used a stamp from a set called Snowman Love at 2RedBananas. This set is actually on sale and is really cute with several sayings and snowflakes. I really liked how the brown and blue look together but after I posted it I decided I should maybe add some glitter to bling him up a little. Funny how it looks different on the computer.

Today the Banana Split Sunday Challenge is to make something that expresses what you are thankful for. I already made Thanksgiving cards for my family so this challenge inspired me to make a card for a friend who is the best. The stamps come from a set called Fuzzy Bears from 2RB. I was excited to use a new embossing folder I got from Quickuzt called Leaves. I think I will be using this one a lot. I really like the variety of leaves, hope you can see them. I also added stitching I often do. So this is the perfect challenge for this time of year, give it a try.

Today I made a card from PCP sketch challenge. It is pretty simple but that's okay. I'm still working on some cards for my sister in law and I think I need simple just to get them done. I also got this Crate Paper in a kit and thought what am I going to do with this heart paper, it's not time for valentines yet? So it worked out perfect.

Todays Banana Split Sunday Challenge is a sketch challenge. I flipped it upside down for my card with a stamp set called Tilly that you can find at 2RB. I know I have said it before but this set has so many cute cow sayings I just love it. Be sure to go to the blog to check out the sketch and see what the other bananas came up with for this one.

Today the Banana Split Sunday challenge is a product challenge. Use eyelets, ribbon, and an oval. I was struggling with the eyelets until I remembered a card that someone made with eyelets for the wheels of the skate board so I lifted that idea. My oval is a word bubble so I hope that works for everyone. The boy stamp is called Skater Jack from 2RedBananas.

Today I made a card using another new stamp from 2RedBananas. It's called Jack and the Snowman. I really like Jack and the snow man is super cute. The warm fuzzies inspired me to use a little flock on his hat and the snow ball. I was also excited to use my new quickutz embossing folder. I bought it because it made me think of baseballs but when I started this card I thought of it as snowballs.

Todays Banana Split Sunday Challenge is a color challenge. You need to use three or four of the colors red, yellow, orange, and brown. It's a great color challenge for this time of year. I cheated a little and used paper with these colors in them already but it works. I used the Oct/Nov Journaling set that was just released this week from 2RedBananas. I really like the little acorn. So many things you can do with it. I can't wait to use it as a background, but here I paper pieced and popped the acorn tops for dimension. Have fun with this challenge. There is a prize this week of a goodie bag of items from 2RB.
