Just Christmas and Birthday Challenge

Hi Everyone, theres another lovely sketch to follow this week on http://www.christmasandbirthdaycards.blogspot.com/ Here are my two cards for it, I havent followed the a5 layout that the sketch suggests to me, but have done my usual square cards.

Christmas

I know I know its that stamp again, but I just love him! I coloured him with promarkers and added a little glamour dust to his beard. The sentiments are cut from other stamps. I added some snowflakes with gems to the corners, the paper is bg wassail.

Birthday I used this image kindly sent to me from lesley :O). I coloured him with promarkers. I used some bg paper again, and added some flowers to the corners, and some gems to the image corners.I added a bow to the top in place of a greeting, and the happy birthday is from a pb stamp.
Thanks for looking.xxx

These cards are just lovely! Don't feel bad for not following a sketch as it is drawn. After all, they are all inspiration. And I love to see the many different ways to use one to my favor!

Hey this is such a super card, what a cute piggy! I love the papers and flowers you have used, really lovely. Have got two of his friends, 'Braveheart' the cat and 'Nuts' the Squirrel. They are the cutest stamps, such great clear images. If you would like some stamped images, let me know and I could send you some, Heidi xx

Joey, I love them both but my personal favourite is the birthday piggie :) Adorable card!

I like how you "interpreted" the sketch and that Wassail paper is gorgeous and matches Santa very well.
Your colouring is fab on both cards.

Thank you for playing along this week at JCBC challenge.

Hugs,
Mada
