A couple of Christmas cards

I stumbled across this blog: Christmas Card Challenges and thought it would be a great idea to get a head start on my Christmas cards.  Every year I tell myself that I will make Christmas cards all throughout the year....and it never happens!

Well, I've made two cards now so it's a good start!

 This first card followed a sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch #184.  I loved the simple design.  My card accidentally turned out looking wintery and snowy - an unintentional happy result!

The second card was disastrous from the beginning and I made mistake after mistake.  I was ready to throw it in the bin and give up...it turned out nothing like I had planned or hoped, but in the end was not as bad as I thought it would be. 

Stamps:  Lawn Fawn -Winter Sparrows
Stamps:  Hero Arts - Collage music background
Inks:  Stampin up
