Christmas Cards!

OK here are this weeks Christmas cards.
First is the card I made for Merry Monday #10 which is a sketch challenge.


I love this sketch. It is simple but you can do so much with it.
Here is my card.
I love this image. It is from the Angle Company which was bought by Amuse. I colored it with chalk and distressed it with TH distress ink.

This next card is for 2012 Christmas Card Challenge Week #14. The challenge there is Embossing.
Here is my card.

Does the sketch look familiar. LOL I used it again and just changed the papers, stamps and I embossed a layer. This really is a pretty card. I sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray and it just shimmers but the light just wouldn't pick it up. Both cards have my home dyed seam binding. I even made two of this card. So that is three more in to the Christmas volt. Now is I was just putting away money every week.....



Thanks for stopping,

Linda these are two FAB Christmas cards and how different they are that first one is so vintage and traditional the second one looks so retro and funky, brilliant cards.
