Merry Monday #81, Doodle Pantry #40, and a special for my niece

I have two cards today, I will be entering them in two different challenges.  The challenges for today are Merry Monday #81, which is to use a Santa image.  The second challenge is for Doodle Pantry #40, and all I need to do is use a Doodle Pantry image😉

MM New Look Sketches-014Here is the card I will be entering into the challenge at Merry Monday#81

Half-fold Card4The Santa image is from a Doodle Pantry set called, Jolly Saint Nicholas.  The image, and both the red and green paper both come in the kit, plus more! The oval behind Santa is gold cardstock, as well as the bottom flag.  The Merry Christmas is a Peel Off, I’ve mentioned these before.  Santa’s hat has sparkles on it. This card will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂 This is not my card for this weeks challenge, I will be making another one;)  Yes, really! 🙂  I have to step up my game and get busy making lots of kids cards for Christmas!

My next card is for my niece, she loves anything to do with mustaches!

Half-fold Card5Okay, yes it’s the same Doodle Pantry kit for the Purple and the Santa;)  I GOT PERMISSION TO ALTER THE IMAGE!  The black mustache paper is from Hobby Lobby, the green paper is Stampin’ Up!, Garden Green.  I don’t remember where I got the ho! ho! ho! stamp.  Actually it has three different types of “ho” on the stamp, I just inked one; three times.  I used Spellbinders Circles, and a Stampin’ Up! Oval punch. I used a Stampin’ Up! Basic Black marker to color the mustache.

These cards were both Simply Made:)  In the next few weeks, I will be making some cards with different kinds of stickers.  Kid’s love stickers! 🙂  They will be simple to do, and hopefully give you some ideas for quick children’s cards.  Well, my cards are actually never very quick, I think too much. lol  But once I decide on a sketch, and the papers, I can do multiple cards pretty quickly;)

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  You all have been very quiet again.  I think I will have another comment contest in December, be sure to check back in for the details:)
