Are you ready for Christmas

Well today I have 3 cards to share with you and they are all about Christmas.  I don't know about you but this year has flown by as it feels like the kids just got out of school and now they are going back on Aug 1.  I  spent this past weekend clothes and school supply shopping and the money adds up when you are buying for 3 kids.
For my first card I used "Follow Me" by Katerina Koukiotis, sheet #3, Plate #159. I colored the image with copics and used some Basic Grey "Jovial" DP,Spellbinders Pendant Die cut in half, Adhesive Pearls and Black jewel flourish.

For my second card I used another Katerina Koukiotis image and this one is called "Home for the Holidays" and she is from the same sheet.

Here is some more views of the image colored with copics.

For my 3rd card I used "Franceska" by Anna Marine sheet #1, Plate #160.   I have used this image before, but I wanted to use her again in different colors.

The DP is from Basic Grey.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and snowflake punches.  The image was colored with copics and I added some glitter glue to the snowflakes and around the border of the image. And to top off the snowflakes I added some pink jewels to the centers of the snowflakes.

I hope you are getting a start on your Christmas cards this year.  If you are like me you never have enough time to get them all done.
We are having a Blog Hop on Friday July 29th, so make sure yo join us as we will be featuring Sweet Pea Stamps artist "Rebecca Sinz".
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
