Winter 5th Birthday

My grand-niece keeps the cards from Aunt Silly (that would be moi) under her pillow, so I don't make them too lumpy.  Hopefully this telescoping card will bring her sweet and playful dreams!

I am sending her a box of colored pencils so she can color these little CTMH stamped critters herself.
Watch out!  
The beaver has a snowball aimed right at you!

Clear It Out Challenge - Anything Goes w/Stash Item Anything Goes  (Everything came from the stash.)
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #230 - UFO's (I made this card a few weeks ago, but with an owl in the center.  Actually it wasn't right in the center, which was a problem for me - and it wasn't closing right.  So I sat it aside.  With a few adjustments, it is now ready for the mailbox with UFO's waiting to be colored by the recipient.)

More than 1 Score Scorepal Challenge #22 - Winter (The inside "lens" pieces were each scored 1/2" inch from the end, folded back and adhered to the sides of the card; the front is a normal gate fold, scored 2 1/8" from each side.)

Have a great day, everyone!  
I promised Aunt Bess some ham and bean soup, so I better get that ham bone cooking!
