Oh, What Fun!

Welcome to Monday, friends!  I've been waiting since last Christmas to use this stamp set and the stitched mountains.  Well, it was time to get a couple more Christmas cards made, so here it is.




Whimsy Stamps "Oh What Fun" clear set, Poppystamps Stitched Majestic Mountains and Stitched Landscapes.  Very quick, loose, cartoonish watercoloring with Tombow markers.  It didn't occur to me till I started to stamp that Santa has no reindeer, so I guess we'll just figure he's testing the load and will hitch up later.

The second card has some masking to create the scene.  Lil' Inker Silly Stitched Die Set and Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes.




I have a long way to go yet with the Christmas cards, sigh... little by little.  Challenges have been helping, and today I'm playing along with the new Merry Little Christmas Challenge -- always anything goes as long as it's Christmas.  Thanks, girls!  May your day be filled with happy!

These cards gave me a chuckle, especially Santa with no reindeer for his sleigh!! I never would have caught that...hmmm...but makes for an easier card minus all those reindeer. Maybe they were off playing reindeer games behind those trees. I really like the cartoon coloring too!!

Ros Crawford said...

Gosh I've missed so much! These are two of the best Christmas cards ever and beautifully done... They make me smile!

Stacy Morgan said...
