Today the Banana Split Sunday challenge is to us a tree. I have seen cards before with button trees but have never made one myself so it was a fun challenge. Green is my favorite color so I do have a large supply of green buttons but finding enough of the right colors that go together was the trick. This is a fun challenge, hope you give it a try and don't forget to check out the other bananas trees as well.

Okay, today we have a blizzard here in Iowa and I'm dreaming about summer. We had 14 inches of snow last night and are all stuck in the house. Perfect time to scrap and make cards but I'm posting a page I made last week. I was very excited as this was a challenge to use a circle as your focal point on a page from The Scrap Room. I was very pleased with how it turned out and then was the random winner of the challenge. This is just the second week I had participated in their challenges so I'm pretty excited. Hope you like my page and that it is warmer where you are than here.

This weeks Banana Split Sunday Challenge is to make a card that reflects "Staying Warm". I immediately thought of this House Mouse image that makes me feel warm. The sentiment is from a new Christmas Sentiments set at 2RedBananas. It's a thank you sentiment thrown in with holiday greetings. So see if you can have warm thoughts this week and maybe you can win a House Mouse stamp for the prize drawing.
