Two For One Holidays

Good Afternoon!  Hope you are having a Marvelous Monday and that you had a fantastic weekend.  I spent mine with my Mom and Sister.  And it was relatively relaxing since I only brought two of my three kids with me.  There is quite a noise level difference between two and three kids...at least that's what I've found.

Anyhow, I have two cards to share with you.  The first is for the Card Patterns Sketch #37 introduced to me by Allison at Stampin' When I Can .  It was a great way to show off the fabulous dp and matching cardstock stickers and I'm sure you're familiar with this collection.  The only thing SU! in this card is the Kraft cs.

Now from the same piece of 8.5 x 11 Kraft I had a piece left over that made a very nice 4.25 x 5 card inspired by Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #44.  I'm not really happy with the final product but it was worth a try.  I used the same dp collection and stickers plus I added some ribbon and bling.  SU! supplies include the ticket corner punch, Ruby Red ink, Ridinghood Red cs, and the sentiment is from the Snow Swirled stamp set.  At the very least I have another Christmas card completed for family and friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look.  I'm so glad that you do.  Have a wonderful week!  Cheers!
