It's Gonna Be a "Cute" Christmas!

Hi guys!

I thought I'd pop in and share a few Christmas cards today. I usually start making them in October and never end up having enough. Hopefully, this year will be different and I'll get more of them made in time.

For this first one, I used an old favorite from Art Impressions. I decided to make a shaker card with these adorable snowmen. Colored them with Copic Markers.




This next one is so fun to color too! It's such a cute stamp from Simon Says Stamp!




Here's another adorable stamp. This one's from Penny Black. Are ya seein' a theme here? I hadn't realized, until I started writing this post, that almost all the Christmas cards I've made this year have a "cute" theme. 



Yup! Another cute one. This reindeer is from Art Impressions and he cracks me up! The nose is die-cut and placed on a mini action wobbler - so fun! This time I used color pencils.
 



And is this stamp and die set cute, or what?! It's from Simon Says Stamp and it has so many darling, vintage toy images! Again - fun to color!


I think I'm drawn to cute images this year because there are so many fun ones out there to play with. I hope you've all gotten a start on making your holiday cards!

Thanks for stopping by. Oh! And if you like sketch challenges, there's a good one going on until Thursday Oct. 13th, over in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group. You can check it out here. There are two, $25.00 gift cards up for grabs! 

Hugs! ♥
