A Christmas Card or Two Inspired by 2 Sketches 4 You

OK, OK... I promise no more ryhmes for the time being... hehehe... I was just reading Allie a Dr. Suess book, so, my apologies. Anywho, the next to cards were inspired by this weeks sketches on I was a little intimidated when I first worked on these last night, but I think perhaps I was just overtired, because this morning, divine inspiration and some cool crafting wire at the bottom of one of my craft bins took over. The first is Laura's sketch #13, seen here:

Looks simple enough, but I had trouble with a good way to add the sentiment... It just didn't click for me until I found the craft wire... And VOILA!

Cute little trees with a silver epoxy star sticker:

And for the pièce de résistance, craft wire stringing the vellum letters stickers backed by blue cardstock. "I'm Lovin' It":

So, I moved onto Kristen's sketch:

I had cut out all the pieces last night minus the ornament, the ribbon, and the craft wire bit. But it looked flat, and kind of boring.

And you know me, it needed some glitz. Ah ha! Change the circle center into an ornament and edge all of the paper in silver ink and again... VOILA!

See... See....Perfecto!

Although the flash on the camera lighted the blue a little... It's more this color:

And so I am delighted with my creations... As I sit here now with a goofy little grin... I am moving onto more challenges... I have the bug today, and I just can't stop... Yowza!!!
