Bring on the Christmas Cards!

I am taking advantage of a very cold day here in Dallas and knocking out a few projects - we went from low 80's yesterday to only 53 today and very grey.  So I warmed myself up with Christmas cards.  And yes, I even made hot chocolate.  I admit - 53 is not cold to most people.  But a 30 degree drop in a single day just left me a bit unprepared!

The first card is for this week's Mojo Monday as well as the banner challenges at Pink Elephant and Use Your Stuff.  The papers are Little Yellow Bicycle; ornament is from Circut Art Philosophy; the scroll stamp, scroll die, and banner dies are from Verve, and the sentiment is from Cutting Cafe;s All About Christmas set which is packed with great images and sentiments.

Onto the next card - horrible photo but cute card!  This one also uses a digital file from Cutting Cafe - the stocking-shaped word art image from the Christmas Sentiments set.  It comes with a cutting file, too, so it was easy to add the shadow layer!  The sketch is based on a layout sketch from Let's Get Sketchy - Scrap Friendzy had a challenge to convert a layout sketch to a card and I thought this one would work well.  The three pattern papers are from Bazzil Believe collection and the "merry christmas" stamp is from Hero Arts.
