Rockin around the christmas tree.... !!!

Hello I am so excited the christmas tree (fake this year) is being brought as I write and we are going to put it up later. I know it is not December but with all this snow (none here yet) I feel festive!!!
I am bringing you two cards I have made for my Keep It Simple DT! I love this weeks theme so I made two cards which I will enter into some challenges that I will list by them. The theme is JOY!
The first card is made using my Vintage Christmas collection one from Pascale's PAD. I used two Whiff of Joy Stamps that I got last year and I love. This would be me if I was living years ago and had to have a real tree. I would be taking a break having chopped it down ROFLxxx or watching my strongman chopping it down PMSL xxx.
I used promarkers and copics to colour her. I roughed up the edges of my two DP's and added a touch of distress ink to them. I 3D the image onto the backing papers and voila card done!
I am entering this card into CES Challenge which has a theme of vintage Christmas.

IMAGES- Whiff of Joy
MEDIUM - promarkers and copics

The second card is made using my new cricut machine and my newest release over at Pascale's PAD called Holly Collection. I used my cricut to cut out the sentiment (using the ice blue holly paper) and a shadow. I then cut out the badge in two co-ordinating colours. I used a 14cm by 14cm square of the snowflake paper to mount the sentiment and border onto. I added some glitter glue to the badge. I am entering this card into Totally Papercrafts which has a theme of untraditonal colours. I am also entering Cricutz Challenge blog who have a theme of a Christmas card with words only.

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale
