2 more cards finished.....

I have made two more Christmas cards today utilizing 3 different challenges! The first card is for the Double Dutch challenge. They have the most gorgeous sketch for the challenge this time and the DT cards are fabulous! I got this cute snowman in the mail the other day and had to color him in. I thought he would go great with this MME paper! I also finally got the cuttlebug snowflake. I wanted it so bad but was not going to pay $10 for it so when I seen it for 1/2 the price at AC Moore's I snagged it. I love it and now see the size and should have gotten it earlier!! Oh well....

Paper: MME
Stamps: Sugar Nellie Homegrown
Inks: Distressed inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: Baubles ~ K & Co., button and twine ~ stash, rub-ons ~ Creative Imagination, Ribbon ~ Micheals, Glitter ~ Martha Stewart

This card started out because I wanted to see what a more blue snowflake would look like covered in glitter. And really liked it so I made a card using it and the sketch from A Spoonful of Sugar. It also fits the Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenge of "Get the feeling". I have used textured cardstock, velvet ribbon and ALOT of glitter!! I also popped up Tilda!!

Papers: Cosmo Cricket ~ Be Good and Winter Wonderland
Inks: Distressed inks, glitter pen
Accessories: Brads ~ Micheals, velvet ribbon ~ Cosmo Cricket


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great friday!! I am off to bed early since I was up way late last night!!
