Let's Cool Down!

In most places around the U.S. we are looking for ways to cool off!!!
So let's think of Winter, Snow and Christmas ;)

This week, Pixie Dust Studio's challenge them is 
"Let's Cool Down"
Create a card/project with a Winter/Christmas theme!

For my Christmas card, I decided to use "Happy Birthday Jesus" digital image...
I also used the following challenges to help me out :)

Another card using up some more of my scraps! Loooove it ;)
A card that is perfect for either boy or girl!
and yes, it's turned into a bad habit!!!
I always have to tweak or move something around on a sketch, sigh...

I have another card to share!!!

For this card, I wanted to use a new image, "Muddy Buddy"...
I also used the following challenges for this card:
Cupcake Craft Challenge #145: Things with Tails  

Okay, I know, lol! It's not exactly a Christmas Card..
but I did use Christmas DP!!! Ha!!!
It's Fancy Pants Happy Holidays!
I just thought that the distressed look would look good with the piggy image ;)
What do you think???
and I looove this layout! I know that it's a square card and that I used the circles on the in the wrong spot, but hey, the inspiration is all there ;)
and it's definitely a sketch that I will use for inspiratino again!

Thanks so much for stopping by, peeking and leaving a comment!!!
Happy Thursday :)

Gorgeous work Margie! I love both of them but I have to say I really like your use do the DP on the second one... I'm never that good at using the DP for anything more than flat panels and you ROCKED this! I really love that paper you colored on as well... it looks gorgeous!
