OWH card (or should I say, cards) #7

This one was sooo fun for me. Those who know me know I could do Christmas cards all year long and never get tired of it. Our challenge #7 was to create not one but TWO Christmas cards (yes, I got all giddy inside and did a couple of "YIPPEES" when I read the challenge). The cards were to be focused more towards for younger ones and one for the older ones. Here is what I came up with for the younger kiddies.

I love the snowman. He is one of my very own creations and one I use every year when I do Christmas cards for the "younger adults" in my family. The hat is just cut out of paper scraps and pieced together to resemble a hat. The card base was a tester base that I just couldn't use on the card I was working on at the time. I sprayed a little Tattered Angels "Chalkboard" on it and VIOLA!! is the second card I made.

The heart on the card says "I'm dreaming...". The stamp I used was an Imaginesce snowflake stamp. The snowflakes were first stamped with a light blue and then with a white. Then I took some Diamond Stickles and added a little sparkle to the snowflakes.

I really hope whoever gets these cards loves them.

I have no doubt that the recipients of these cards will love them. And, I was thrilled to hear you were so excited about the challenge. :)

Your embellishments on the first card are really cute. And, the snowman and sentiment perfectly balance one another.

I love how you stamped in two colors on the second card -- and added a few Stickles for a little sparkle, which is one of my favorite things to do. :) This card is just so pretty!

Thanks so much for playing along with our Christmas is for Kids challenge.
