Catching Up on Christmas

Happy Saturday, peeps!  I had time to make two simple Christmas cards..both use CTMH's Be Jolly set as well as some Oh What Fun! papers from My Minds Eye!  The first one is for Merry Monday's challenge of pastel colors:

The image was stamped with Pool Party ink, and I added a Soft Sky panel and Soft Sky seam binding ribbon; I punched out a few glimmer snowflakes (one of which is waving to us, uh-oh!) and adhered them to the pink snowflake paper:

I colored in the image with a Blushing Bride marker:

and added a simple sentiment on the inside:

My next card is for the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge and the Jingle Belles:  Text Me challenge:

This "ho ho ho" paper was just begging to be used for the "text" challenge; I added a mat of Tranquil Tide and stamped the sentiment in the same color:

A little shading with a blender pen and Riding Hood Red ink:

and the inside sentiment from My Favorite Thing's Seasonal Sentiments:

Thanks for visiting sure to come back tomorrow for our next Paper Players challenge, too!

Who's walking who?

You've captured the colors the inspiration wreath perfectly LeAnne, so pretty!! And you nailed the sketch too. These are both marvelous. Cute photos of Cassidy with her best bud!! Our son used to put on his roller blades to walk the dog!! He just held onto the leash and let Sparky do all the work LOL!!

Both cards are so pretty and way to go getting a jump start on Christmas cards for next year! I just love the angle of the text in the 2nd card and how those cute Santa faces are scattered among the ho ho ho's! It's a fun take on the sketch and I love the traditional colors. Miss Cassidy looks like she's having fun with her new pooch and I love her hair flying in the wind as she tries to keep up with walking the dog! LOL She's just growing up TOO quickly! Thanks for playing along with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge, it's good to visit again too :)
