One for Mojo, one for Mercy…

Hello! So glad that you found some time and stopped by today. I have two Christmas cards to share with you. They both made for sketch challenges.

The first one is for MOJO Monday which is happened to be a contest too. I decided to give a try this month also. 🙂 I thought right away about cute little polar bear when I saw amazing sketch by Julee. This bear is from clear stamp set that I bought last year from Walmart. I paper pierced his scarf, added lots of glitter. And also tried something new – created an illusion of snow hills by using “onion skin” paper. Very different style of the card, but I like how it turned out.

My second card is for Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch. Thank you Mercy for the inspiration!!! As you can see here I used so many DP, so many layers and once again transparency paper. I even took my heat gun for both of the cards and heat embossed the sentiments. This adorable Santa Emma is from C.C. Designs.

Oh, if you wonder how my hairstyle turned out… Well, it is okay. Not as I thought it will be; not very thrilled about it. Picture will come; just didn’t have time and volunteers to be my photographer. 🙂 Hopefully over the weekend Sergei can take some shuts.

That is all for today. I really appreciate all your comments. Wishing you all wonderful weekend,
