The Sketchy Challenge # 12, MDUC 126 & JM 136...Sweet Christmas Dreams!!

Hello stampin' friends! Well, I am trying to make a bunch of Christmas cards and the clock is ticking...eekkk!!!! I fear that I just won't get to make a card for everyone on my list this year. So, I thought I better ink up a few more of my gorgeous Christmas Maggies that I just had to have and it would be a shame to get to use them! I made two cards and kept them rather simple to speed up the process. I thought I'd play along with a few challenges too for some inspiration. So, I followed the beautiful sketch over at The Sketchy Challenge. I love this sketch by Jane! I also made this card for the Lost and Found challenge at MDUC! The Twill ribbon was wrapped around throw pillows that I bought at Winners as we are redoing our bedroom and the challenge over at Just Magnolia is Dreaming of a White I have used white and added "snow" to my cards with Flower Soft.

For my first card I have used Tilda with Snow Heart....I just LOVE her! She is my fave from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collections. I coloured her with my Copics, cut her out with my Rectangle Nesties, left the image in the die and inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I added some Polar White Flower Soft for snow. I used the Wonky Border Die-namics and some black Gems to embellish. The sentiment came in the Magnolia Stamp Club Kit and I stamped it on the Framed Greetings Label Die-namics.

For this card I have used Midwinter Tilda. I coloured her with my Copics and cut out the image with my rectangle Nesties, left the image in the die and inked with Iced Spruce Distress ink from the Winter Seasonal set of 3 Distress inks.  I used my Wonky Scalloped border Die-namics again and the gorgeous papers on both cards are Authentique Wonder!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my cards! I hope to get a few more done this week but I probably won't get to posting them.

Gorgeous! Such perfect details. I think the stamp on the first card is my fave from the new collection as well, sadly I don't own her YET!! Both cards are truly fantastic. Great coloring and designs! Thanks for playing with us at the Sketchy Challenges this week! Best of luck to you both with the challenge and with trying to complete all your cards in time! LOL
