another christmas card possibility

Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend - we enjoyed a very warm weekend and a lazy Sunday full of football watching. Although I can't say the Broncos actually played football this week - can they stink it up any more?? Any annoyed fans out there? Steph? Anyway...
Today's card is Beate's weekend sketch challenge, Christmas style. It's another sample I made for a family member who I'm making cards for this year. I figure the rejects will be used by me, ha! The background is stamped in Bashful Blue with the Bold Snowflakes jumbo wheel and the patterned paper is from a mini 2 Holiday Minis ago.

This second card is a CASE of one of Natasha's cards I saw on the Clean & Simple blog this morning - it was so cute, I had to copy it!! Just sweet and simple - so jump on in and use this layout to mass produce your cards this season. It's a quick one!

Thanks for stopping by! See you back soon.
