Merry Mondays & Monday Lunch Time Sketch/LNS

Hello to all my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Is it Tuesday already? Wow, time flies when you are having fun right!
I had a chance to step into my studio for a little while this evening after we can home from a wonderful dinner with our friends Carey and John. I whipped up two cards for a couple sketch challenges I saw earlier this morning.
The first card is for Lesley's Merry Mondays Christmas Card Sketch Challenge #9 and the second card is for Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge # 210  which I also added a LNS Color Challenge #162 along with that card. The LNS (Late Night Stampers) color challenge was to "Go Green". That was way too easy as I already had pulled out blue and green paper for making this card (Is that cheating or being physic lololol)??? Enough talking lets see some cards!

Merry Mondays #9
This is what I came up with;
I have most of the elements on this card but, I took a few creative liberties and made a couple boxed presents instead of the circle to go with the tree  theme and moved the sentiment lower and added that to one of the gifts.
I love the old world feel to this card. This sketch really did inspire me to create a Christmas Card I would want.
Here is a look at the inside;
Now on to the next card;

Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch# 210 was a fun one too. In addition, I added the color challenge from LNS "Go Green" Here is the sketch;
Here is my card. I am still having fun playing around with the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set as you can see. The rhinestones really make the card extra special. You should see it in person as there is just a touch of bling to catch the eye.
and a look at the inside;
That is all I have for this evening. I'm tired and better go get some sleep. Today was a very busy and long day.
I hope you all find some time to create something fun.. Thanks so much for stopping by .

I love them both. I wish that you had dinner with me. But then DH would say who the heck is this John person. Hee hee, yes, I know I am bad.

Hugs to you my BFF,
the other Carey and her furry sidekick Roscoe
