Oh Joy - Meljen's Release

Hi ya everyone!
  Well Christmas is coming fast and I had a few more cards to make.  I made these last two using two sweet images from the new release at Meljen's Design that can be found at Whimsy Stamps (there is no challenge at Meljen's Design Challenge blog this week because of Christmas - but stop by for some inspiration from the Design Team anyway and THERE IS A CHANCE TO WIN TWO FREE IMAGES!!!).

I colored them up with my Copics and used a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I didn't enter the challenge and loosly followed the sketch - but I love sketches as they give me a layout which is often the hardest part for me!
 I used a number of papers from my Cricut paper stacks - Doodlecharms and Christmas stack. 
Here is a quick view of the insides - I used a few $1 stamps from Studio G!

This will be my last post for a bit of time with Christmas coming!  I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season.  I am very blessed with a number of wonderful people - my family for starters (my husband is just the most wonderful man I've ever know and I have two of the sweetest girls on the planet!), my new friends in the crafting world whom I love dearly, and my health...I miss my family this time of year that is still in Ohio - but my love is with them anyhow!  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!  I'll be back before the New Year!!
