2 Christmas cards... and I won a Unity Stamp!!!

Morning and happy Saturday!! I have two "fun and easy" Christmas cards to share... and I won a Unity Stamp!!! Yes, how exciting... :) It was Rachel's week of "Growing In Unity" at Bucket Full of Cards, and it put me in the running to win a single stamp of my choice from Unity Stamp Company. Rachel has "many MANY" super cute and fun cards to check out! Also she loves trying new techniques and has fantastic tutorials to share with you!! I was on cloud nine when I found out I won... thanks SO much Rachel and Unity Stamp Company! :)
My first card I used the SU! Holiday Line up set, colored in the stocking hat with Real Red marker and added a "Mini Pom-Pom" to Rudolph's nose... then added a bit of white Liquid Applique on the hat tassel. Layered it up and added the sentient and black stitched ribbon! EASY & FUN!
My second card was designed at Julie's card club class last month. We used the SU! White Gel pen to add small dots to the SU! Snowflakes and using my FAV Top Note as a background. I added the CB embossed swirls and the Martha Stewart star punch behind the button. Well, I'm off to write out more Christmas cards... still in progress! :)

Enjoy your day and keep warm!! Another burry day here and perfect for some Chai tea.... thanks for visiting and the sweet comments! I know I'm behind on returning them, but not for long!

SMILES... Michelle :)

I'm glad you won! You deserve it girl! Enjoy!

I really like the simplicity of the Holiday Line-Up card. It's just right. Love the Kraft and how you colored only for emphasis!

The pink and red is a cutie, too! You know I haven't used my Top Note for a SINGLE card this year. What could be wrong with me? I've THOUGHT about using it, but it just didn't happen. It's too late for cards. But I am thinking about squeezing in some tags, so there is hope yet!

Stay warm my northern friend !

I like how you colored in only a little bit of your reindeer image. I get caught up in those intricate line drawing images about having to color each bit. It's really cute with just a hint of red though.

The pink card would be a fund xmas card for a girlfriend.

Great cards. Love the reindeer black and white with pops of colors. What's not to like about snowflakes. They are my favorite winter image.

Yea for FREE stuff!! Congrats Michelle! I love Unity stamps.

These cards are too fun! The first looks like the perfect "dude" Christmas card, and the second is absolutely stunning. Great work!

I received the first card in yesterday's mail and I have to say it's cuter in person than on the screen. Love the pom pom nose. Thanks for thinking of me Michelle!

Gorgeous as always - I can't help it but those Line-Up boys can't help but make you smile - and they always look GREAT - they will be on my faves list for years! Thanx for all of your inspiration this year!
Thanx too for your email it put the biggest smile on my face!

Oh, these are wonderful! The reindeer card brought a huge smile to my face. I love how you highlighted just a bit of the image! Have a wonderful Christmas, Michelle. :)

Love the monochromatic color combination in your snowflake card - so soft and warm looking. Merry Christmas, Michelle!
