Today I am going to share two cards I made last night.

The first one was for Sketches4all Countdown to Christmas challenge #2.  It calls for using the following sketch and four different patterned papers.  I absolutely am a patterned paper nut so this was a great challenge for me.

Here is the sketch:

I modified it a bit to make it work for me by using 3 little boxes instead of four but otherwise I stayed really true to the sketch.

And here is my card!
I am also going to share this one over at Word Art Wednesday in challenge #162 Anything Goes.
My next card uses sketch #101 from Let's Capture Our Memories.
Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I am struggling to get good photos with this phone but without a computer at home I can't use the camera...

This card is on a shimmery ivory base, it uses decorative edge scissors for the trim of the border for Sketches4all Anniversary Challenge Party 3. I haven't used them in years and I am no better with them now then I was way back when they were 'IN'.  I struggled and cut so many times having trouble getting them to cut straight. is the result! It also includes a K&Company diecut that is from a package I just loved.  It is three dimensional which is hard to tell in the photo.

I hope that my cards have added to your holiday mood!  I'm sure we all are busy getting ready for the big day.  I know that I have to get going with my baking and decorating.  I am falling way behind my hoped-for schedule.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
