Christmas cards

Wow it is Thursday.  I feel like a bad blogger.  I have been so busy with yard work.  There is so much work and it is hard. I need a yard boy.

Ok I did get two Christmas cards done. I didn't do two last week so I am one behind.
Christmas Card Challenge #24  is to use old or neglected stamps. I used an old stamp set of mine by Theresa Momber and colored the image with copic markers.

I also used the sketch from last weeks Merry Monday Challenge 19

The second card is for Challenge 20 at Merry Monday
Here is the sketch.

Here is my card.
I used the same stamp set and copic markers.
I am off to Curves (I got a free one month trial), then yoga.  Then I am going to Madison to do yard work for my in-laws.

If you have any questions about my cards please leave me a comment.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Linda the days do seem to go by so quick, very often when I wake up I haven't got a clue what day it is, lol. I am loving both these wonderful Christmas creations the image, colours and design of both look super.

Two lovely Christmas cards. Brilliant. I have yet to make a Christmas card this year...I think...I must get started right after I get through graduation and Father's Day :)

Boy, are you busy with the yard work! I did some major stuff in the yard myself the last two weekends. It IS hard work!

Glad you had some crafty time as well, and both your Christmas cards are lovely. I'm partial to topiaries, so I'm lovin' that second card!

Thanks so much for playing with us at Merry Mondays!
