Brr.....It's SNOW cold! ;D

Is it REALLY December already?! Oh my word, I am in TROUBLE. I only have a few short weeks to finish all my Christmas gifts!!! Okay, now I need to stop talking about it because I may be sick...I tend to work myself up about these things...

Okay, so one of my favorite colors to use on wintery holiday cards is BLUE. It's so wintry, don't you think?! AND I love using shimmer and glitter--it makes my heart happy!!! :)

So, since I'm strapped for time, I have 2 cards for you in one post today. Similar colors, so I feel justified. ;D The first one is for The Pink Elephant photo challenge this week and also for this week's Papertake Weekly challenge--it's a sketch. :)

Here it is~

And details~





Like it? I was sooooo happy to use snowmen! I haven't made a lot of snowmen cards this year but I adore them!!!

This second card is for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and also for this week's Sunday Stamper challenge--Lucky Star. :)

Here it is~

And details~



I had lots of fun making the image panel on this one--isn't that blue sponged ink just awesome on that shimmer paper (NEW to me from Core-dinations)?! I tried to take good pics to show you that it's shimmery and has a subtle pattern to it. LOVE THIS!!!

Ok, there you have it! :) Gotta run--having a Stampin' Up! party...haven't hosted one in years! BUT BEFORE I FORGET: IF I get 100 followers by January 1, 2012, I will be giving away some blog candy! Won't you please join in the fun?! Merry stamping and happy December to you all!!! :)
