A couple more holiday cards

Here are a couple more Christmas cards made with the new justjohanna images.

Here is Priscilla - in trouble again!

I can totally relate. I put the lights on the tree last night and it was the usual wrestling match. Although, I followed some advice I read in a magazine and did the lights in "zones" instead of going around and around. It was much faster - and still looks OK I think. (Although - who can tell once you put on all the ornaments and what not made by one 7 year old and two 4 year old girls!) Martha Stewart would NOT be pleased with our tree - but I guess it works for us.

About this card:
Stamps by justjohanna
Paper: DCWV Christmas Glitter Stack
Colored with Copics - the lights were done with gelly roll glaze pens to make them more shiny.
Red Grosgrain ribbon
Fiskars Corner punch and BoBunny brad.

Here is my version of Auntie Stu at the office Christmas (uh...sorry..."Holiday" ) party.

I used my Nestibles to cut the rectangle and scallop. I added some fun flock to the hat and stocking cuff. (I love my quickie glue pen for this). I also put some Stickles on the "rock".

It was looking a little too stark to me, so I inked the edges of everything with Versamark Tea Leaves and a duster brush.

The layout is a little different, but I think it's OK.
