More Christmas Cards

So I started yesterday evening working on cards - trying to catch up on a card challenge for LinneCards and what do I end up doing - cards that have nothing to do with the challenge LOL I am card making like I scrap - I let the supplies lead me rather than me leading them!! I used a huge Joy stamp from Unity on one card and their Christmas List stamp and I believe it is itty bitty christmas santa stamp on the other. Both cards have bazzill as the base and Basic grey as the patterned paper. I am not quite done with Joy but as soon as I get a light grey copic and a glitter pen I will take care of that =0)

Other than that not much is going on!

Ft Meade Card Swap

Wow it has been awhile since I updated! It has been crazy around here with getting ready for the card swap and just general life with 3 kids! I finished my card, my finished product is below. I used Stampin up Green and Red cardstock and I embossed one layer with the snowflake die for the cuttlebug. I then used shimmerz on this layer to give it some sheen! Used a stampin up santa stamp and an inkadinkado stamp. I used copics to color in santa and accented him with stickles...overall i think he turned out pretty good!

The swap itself was awesome! It was hosted by Tracy and Amanda and they did a fab job! I had a blast trying out everyone's cards and for a newbie it was great to get some ideas and learn some new techniques!! I also unfortunately now want about 4-5 more stamps sets then I did when I went in LOL I have a pic of some of my completed cards below.

Also I won a fabulous prize from Rhonda - an adorable altered house she did! She is being pretty modest but it is adorable!!!! So overall a wonderful day away from home and I am uber motivated now to make some christmas cards!!! I think I will continue with Santa for now. But I foresee that Cardinal stamp set and the snowman stampin up set in my near future!
