Christmas Cards

Here are my two Christmas cards for this week.

Christmas Card Challenge  week #12 is to use Paisley and I though of this pretty Graphic 45 paper right away. I used one of my new stamp sets. You can see all of those in the video below.

I used the sketch from Merry Monday Challenge #8 

This next card is one I made for a Christmas challenges last week and I didn't get it posted. I am not sure which challenge it was.
I used one of Heather Ellis's adorable Innocent images.  The image is colored with Copic markers and the Joy is a die cut. The card glimmers. I spayed it with SU all-Purpose Frost White mixed with alcohol. 

My dear sweet hubby gave me a gift card to Archivers for Valentine's day. Wednesday they had a 40% off sale on all of their stamps.  So I went shopping. I love what I got, but now I am thinking that all the new stuff will come in and I used up all my money. LOL  I really did had fun. I was sooooo happy he got me that instead of roses. I think he gets "IT", don't you?

Here is what I got. 

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the next SSDS challenge.

Thanks for stopping,
