It's feeling a lot like Christmas

Hi there everyone!! It's that time of week again... Bellarific Friday :-) This week, we were challenged to create a card using the sketch above.  I'm in full panic mode in terms of getting Christmas cards done so I made two cards using Stamping Bella images.
For my first card, I have used "Pia Puddingtop".  I love this image even though I had a bit of trouble coloring her up today.  I don't often use dark colors when coloring so I'm not super happy with how the coloring turned out.  She almost made it into the trash bin but I couldn't do it. The image has been stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, embossed with clear embossing powder and then watercolored with Tombow Markers.  The DP is from Carta Bella and the edges have been sponged with Close to Cocoa ink.
For my second card, I've used the image called "Boots" ( I can't find it on the website so I am unsure if it's sold out or discontinued).  The image has been stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, embossed with clear embossing powder and watecolored with Tombow Markers. I added a bit of Stampendous "Shaved Ice" to make it look like snow.  The "hill" was created using the Memory Box die called Country Landscape. 
I know that last week we mentioned that this would be the last Bellarific Friday challenge but we changed our minds :-)  (That's what happens when the Bella Babes and the boss get together).  Our theme for next week is "Thinking of You". 
I hope you like my little bit of the holidays here on my blog.

I really like both cards. The first is colored beautifully, but I have to say the second is my favorite. I just love the gingham landscape, it is very clever.

You can get customized jerseys, sweatshirts, hats and t-shirts If you are nice to them and bring a fuzzy toy or yummy treat (the cats, not the women), you will have them wrapped around your finger (and her wrapped around your body) in no time If you avoid paying certain obligations because you have insuffieienct funds, or are displeased with the service of someone whom you owe money, use visualizationA lot of people spend a lot of money at chic pet boutiques, dressing their dogs in hundred-dollar sweaters and paying for meticulous pedicures
