A Couple of Christmas Cards

Happy Friday!!

I am very happy it's almost the weekend. I have loads to get done with my holiday shopping and I'm looking forward to some family time too. Hope you all have a great one!

Today is new challenge day over at Stamp Something and Just Magnolia. The challenges at both are pretty easy too, so we hope you will join in and have some fun with us.

At JM our challenge is to simply make a Christmas card using your favorite holiday Magnolia stamps. Show us your holiday cheer and you could win a fab prize from Quixotic Paperie!

For my card I've used this sweet Tilda with her unwrapped present and some BasicGrey Jovial papers and my new Whimsy Stamps Music Notes background stamp to create my own paper.  I also used a paper doily for an added layer. The image was colored with Copics and cut out and adhered to the music note layer. I've embellished with lace, ribbon, flowers, and a sentiment from the Whimsy Winter Letter Seals set.

This card fits the challenges at:
Fab 'n' Funky - Christmas for children
Stampavie and More - Christmas
Cute Card Thursday: Floral Frenzy

Next is my card for the new SS challenge which this week is Go Digi! It's our monthly digital challenge and all you need to do to participate is use something digi on your project. We have 5 fab sponsors this week and 5 fab prizes up for grabs!

For my card I've used an image from Digi Doodle Shop, which is one of our sponsors. This is Christmas Door and it's been colored with Copics and then I added some glitter and flocking to create some faux snow. The papers are Bo Bunny and have been distressed with scissors. I finished off with some ribbon and flower embellishments.

This card also fits at:
Cooking It Up With Katie - Christmas, red and some layers
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a super Friday and a fabulous weekend!
