Countdown to Christmas #21 and #22

Happy Tuesday! Before I get going, just a reminder that all the new releases are available at Clear Dollar Stamps plus something BRAND, BRAND new. Lori has stepped into June with a card kit for purchase. Head on over to Clearly iStamp to check it out. Its very cool and I know you'll like it.

Now for today, I had every intention of sharing my 21st Christmas card, but the first one I did I didn't like. Hubby had run to the store so I thought I would jet downstairs and create a super quick Christmas card.

I only had 2 requirements in my brain... Christmas and I wanted to use a Close to my Heart stamp since I hadn't used one in a while. So this is what I ended up with. It just didn't work for me so I started a new card later on.

So, this is my 2nd card... again... 2 requirements. I wanted to use a CTMH stamp and make it a Christmas card. I did use a CTMH stamp, but I ended up adding 2 other stamp sets to it. I used Vintage Labels 10 and Fancy Phrases (the nestie part) from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I also ended up using Tim Holtz distress inks for this card as well. While I was creating this card I really liked it and then in the end... I'm not sure.

So in the end, I'm sharing them both and will be giving them both away at Christmas time. You be the judge... yay, nay, or none :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
