So, here's my entry for both fantastic challenges:
This card makes me so happy because not only is it fun and festive, but I'm actually working as a Christmas caroler right now! It's wonderful! I get to wander around my picturesque little town, singing beloved Christmas carols, spreading joy and love throughout the season. Yup...it's fabulous. I can't complain. Plus, I colored the ladies in the stamp to look like my fellower carolers and me! Oh, and I used a fantastic new pen to write "Fa La La" in the circles. It's a Parallel Pen by Pilot. It is so versatile and easy to use, and my handwriting comes out looking fancy and flowing. I love it!
I hope you enjoy this card, and please check back again soon. I've been creating lots of cards which I need to post on this blog, plus the December Blog Hop for DeNami Design is THIS SUNDAY! For details on that, make sure to check DeNami's Blog. Hope to see you hopping!

This card is inspired by my adorable, yet troublesome, cat, Sophie. While her sister, Izzy, is fairly laid back, Sophie has a knack for getting into trouble. Allow me to submit the following evidence...
Adorable: Sophie snuggling with her sister, Izzy. How cute is that fluffy belly?
Troublesome: This was once the sight that greeted me after returning from a week long vacation: ribbons and embellishments EVERYWHERE! I even caught Sophie in the picture with the evidence.
I absolutely fell in love with this Snowy Night stamp from Hero Arts. Can't you see why? It's so peaceful and beautiful. Also, my new Swiss Cheese edger punch by EK Success was calling to me, and I'm really happy with the background texture it adds.
Stamps: Snowy Night (Hero Arts), Season's Greeting (Hero Arts for Archiver's)
Paper: Blue, White, Navy (TPC)
Ink: Paris Dusk (Memento), Starlite Silver (Brilliance) Other: Snowflakes (Starform), Silver Borders (Magenta Style), Ribbon (Celebrate It! for Michael's), Swiss Cheese Edger Punch (EK Success)
This next card pushed me in a new direction, as I rarely work with vintage/antique images. I'm really excited about the finished product, though. This entire card was created using only two stamps, the Santa stamp by Magenta and the Pine corner stamp by Inkadinkadoo.
Stamps: Vintage Santa Quad (Magenta), Pine Corner (Deck the Halls set by Inkadinkadoo)
Paper: Silver, Gold and White Pearl Papers (Darice)
Ink: Embossing Ink Pad (Versamark), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Other: Black Embossing Powder (Judikins), Copic Markers, Stickles
