Christmas Cards

Hello There,
I finished my two cards for this weeks  Christmas challenges.
This first one is for Christmas Card Challenge week #13. 

The challenge is to incorporate Music in your card. Right away I thought of this old SU set I have called Over the River. 
I used the music embossing folder on some Gina K Pure Luxury Card stock All Spruced Up. Next I added a sheet of music paper from an old song book. The image is edged with gold. I hand cut the sentiment inked it and layered it on more green paper and cut it out again. 

The second card is for Merry Monday Challenge #9 The Sketch is from Torico.

I used another old SU stamp set. This is one of the first SU sets I bought  back in in 2001 call Snow Angels. 
The base card is Gina K Pure Luxury Card stock All Spruced Up. The next layer is embossed with snowflakes. The green plaid and poke a dot on his snow suit is from a 6x6 Cosmo Cricket pack called Mitten Weather. I colored the snow, his face, mittens and boots with copic markers. I lined both cards and they are now they are in my antique suit case with all the other Christmas cards I am stashing away.

I am sorry about the pictures. I think my camera is biting the dust. Any suggestions on a new one would be so helpful.

Thanks for stopping,

Darling Christmas cards, Linda! I don't think I have made any so far in 2012...eek! I absolutely love your border on the green plaid paper (second card) and the way the oval overlaps the music paper (first card). Nice!

Hello Linda!

How are you doing, my goodness it's been awhile! I see you changed your header and I love the St. Patrick deco. As always your little fur baby looks meow-va-lous!

Your Christmas cards turned out great! I'm so happy to see you doing the Christmas card challenge still!
