Christmas cards!

What an inspired post title!! Anyhoo, thought I'd show you a couple of Christmas cards I'd made a while back.

This first one uses In the Manger by Mo Manning and is coloured with copics. I've used one of my fav Sketch Saturday sketches which makes such a quick and easy card. The papers are Echo Park Winter Park. Sentiment is a Pink Petticoat mini one punched out with Stampin Up Window Punch.

I'd like to enter this into:
Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge- fav colour combo (for me anything bright!)
By The Cute and Girly- red, white and blue
Card and Scrap- something with angels
Cards Galore- Christmas
Addicted to Stamps- Christmas
Crafts4eternity- Christmas

Close up!

This second one is an entire PTI card inspired by cards Dawn McVey made last Christmas. I've used the stamp from the Silent Night set and framed with a Limitless Labels. The larger shapes are made using the Mat Stack 3 dies (I love this shape!!) I've also used the Wonderful Words: Holiday die and stamp set and finished with PTI ribbon.

I'd like to enter this into:
Allsorts- Advent
Less Is More- Red and green
Whimsy Inspirations- traditional Christmas colours

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Mo Manning, Pink Petticoat, PTI); Copics; Lyra pencils; Nesties; Papers (Echo Park, Authentique); Assorted cardstock; Punch (Stampin Up); Mat stack 3 dies (PTI); Wonderful Words Holiday die (PTI); Limitless Labels die (PTI); Ribbon (PTI); Gems (Kars)

See you on Saturday! xxx
