Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone, I am at the cabin and only brought one bad of card making supplies. Hubby is out side painting all day so I am making cards. I wanted to do the two Christmas card Challenges and I did. It was kinda old school card making because of the limited supplies I bought with me.
I brought my old CM Cutting System because that doesn't take much room,  Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 6 X 6 pack of paper, some Raisin Boat paper, 4 Raisin Boat stamp sets, Copic markers, glue score tape, Memento ink, stamping blocks. one pice of black velvet ribbon and a paper cutter. This made it all more of a fun challenge for me.
Here is the challenge for  Merry Monday #21  it is a sketch.
Here is my card. 
This week at Christmas Card Challenge #25 the challenge is a sketch.
Here is the card I made using the sketch and the little bit of supplies I had. The paper is some different Christmas paper that was in my bag.
The stamp is for the Raisin Boat set Foreground Forest.


I made one more card just for fun.
It is cool and very windy today so I stayed inside. Now don't think I just played. I hung a cabinet, washed floors and window and did dishes. It is never all fun and games is it?


I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another fun Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Challenge.


Thanks for stopping,

Sometimes it is a nice challenge to only use a limited amount of supplies.
Hope you have a great weekend at your cottage.
It is going to rain all weekend so we are staying home from our cottage this weekend :(
