Two christmas cards

Good evening to everyone.  Hope you are all well.  I went back to work today after a lovely few days off - much of which was sent doing housework and such like, however I have managed to cram in some 'me time' in the craft room too, hence more posts this week than usual, and some more entries to some of the challenges.

I've made two separate ones - the first is to enter the Friday Sketch challenge sketch #51.  A nice simple card stamped with a Chloe stamp back ground, and embossed with Wow blue blast embossing glitter.  The picture doesn't do it justice it sparkles beautifully in the light.

this is for Friday sketch challenge, please scroll down for other challenges.

The second is a pink Christmas card.  I found some really old papers I had in a docraft goody bag a few years ago, that were perfect for this. I combined with two LOTV stamps, ribbons, lace and pearls.  coloured the image with promarkers.  I then used some snow that puffs up with the heat gun and sprinkled with glitter before heating.  Added 25th Dec as a tag, and a wooden embellishment that I covered with Versamark before using Stampendous frontage aged rose embossing enamel to colour.

This card is to enter in several challenges:

Papertake weekly - Anything goes but optional extra for Christmas theme
Passion for promarkers - pink and pearly.  I used both pearl embellishments and a pink pearlised paper to matt and layer
Cutie pie challenge#52 - cute Christmas in September
Ribbon girl - use numbers.
613 Avenue create - Anything goes
I love promarkers - use more than one image (I used two different LOTV stamps but cut one up to leave only the penguin)
LOTV - ribbons and lace

I hope you like them, and thanks for visiting and leaving your comments
