Christmas Card Challenge Week #16

I'm finally joining in on Sparkle's Christms Card Challenge! This is week #16. Since this is my first week participating, I'll explain a little about it. Sparkle started this challenge in December of last year. She will be making 2 Christmas cards each week and posting them on Sundays. By the end of the year, she will have 104 cards in her Christmas stash! You can find more info on her blog here. I'm getting a little late start to her challenge, but I'm going to try to do it as often as I can so that I will have at least some cards in my Christmas stash come December 2009!

Since I got these Riley stamps after Christmas, I've never had a chance to use them, so I thought this is the perfect excuse!

My first card is loosely based upon Taylor's TECC57 sketch. I changed it a little by moving the vertical panel in the center of my card instead of at the very top. My second card also started with a Taylor sketch (TECC60). I wanted to add Liquid Applique to Riley's hat and beard, but once again, I could not find it {I am constantly losing my Liquid Applique pen}, so I added some Star Dust stickles instead.

I hope you're having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
