A Double Take on Christmas Cards

I know, I know your thinking Christmas cards already. Well I found this challenge blog called Scrapmaster's Paradise Presents Color Combo or SPCC. This weeks challenge called Christmas Combo #2 was to use Old Olive, Handsome Hunter and Real Red. I made these 2 cards because at Sweet Sketch Wednesday their challenge is a double take or 2 different sketches. I wasn't sure if I chose just one or if I needed to do both so I just decided to do both sketches.

While making these cards, I came to the conclusion that I prefer coloring in images over solid stamp images. A big shock since just a few months ago I hated coloring in anything, lol. I owe it all to Mindy, she always makes us color at stamp class. Now I need to find new Christmas stamps because most of mine are solid images. Supplies All SU except the hohoho stamp that I got from the Michael's dollar bin last year.

Hey Juanita! You did an amazing job with the colors!! I really love the snow swirled card!

Just an FYI, the Christmas combo is NOT the weekly challenge for the prize. The Christmas one is just for fun. I just want to make sure you know since you mentioned you were a newbie :O)

Welcome to SPCC!! It is great to have you and I look forward to seeing more of your work.
