Using the Incy Wincy Sketch for the Holidays

Hello Crafty Friends,
After grocery shopping this morning I made myself comfortable in my craft area and made two new cards using last week's sketch from Incy Wincy Designs. Unfortunately, I did not meet the deadline since the challenge site is from Australia and they are a day ahead. I will know for next time to keep an eye on the clock.
Have you ever done that...made a project and missed the deadline? I am disappointed, but still pleased with the outcome of both cards.
Here is the first holiday card...
 I added Citron glitter glue to the middle tree. All the trees sit on pop dots to add dimension.
 The brown cord "pops" on that green Bo Bunny button. The stamp is from Whimsical Designs ~ Snow Much Fun.
Here is the other card...
I thought of my daughter when I made this one since she mentioned how much she likes snowmen.
 I coated him with Glitz glitter glue so he would sparkle. Yes, it is still a little wet, but I am sure it will be dry by the time I am done typing this post.
 I added a wood button to match the arms and then tied a double bow with Blossom twine. This stamp is also from Whimsical Designs ~ Snow Much Fun.
Other Materials:
Recollections paper ~ Holly Day Wishes (top card)
brown and tan cardstock
Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge ~ trees (p. 37) cut at 2 1/2"
brown ink
My Mind's Eye paper ~ Merry (bottom card)
pink and black card stock
Hello Kitty ~ snowman (p. 77) cut at 2 1/2"
pink pearls
black ink 
Other Challenges:
Hoping you have a pleasant week. This is the last full week of school then we only have two days the following week. Looking forward to Thanksgiving Break and holiday shopping. I sure hope there are some good deals!
