Cloud9 December Blog Hop and Lawnscaping #47

I'm back today with another card for this month's Cloud9 December Blog Hop.  I am still using the same inspiration picture, but this time I used it to make something with my new Quilt Cuts Dies.

I keyed off the red snowflakes and the kraft color of the chairs, as well as the warm and caring feeling to the room.  As I have run out of sympathy cards, that is what I made for this challenge entry.

I also have a card for Lawnscaping Challenge #47, which is a color challenge featuring turquoise (Hawaiian Shores), Kraft and Red.

I used my new Lawn Fawn Sweet Christmas set to make a happy little winter scene.

This card will be sent to a sweet little boy named Sebastian, who is battling some major medical issues, that I just read about this morning.  When I made this card yesterday, I didn't quite know what I would do with it.  Well, after reading about Sebastian, I decided to send this card to him.  If you would like to participate in this card drive, please click here to get to Amy Tsurata's blog or here for Ginger's blog to learn more.
