Couple of Christmas cards

Hi everyone! I have a couple Christmas cards to share with you. Christmas? Really, already? Well Cosmo Cricket has their yummy Jolly by Golly line out right now and it's WAY too cute to ignore.

This first card uses said Cosmo paper and Chipboard stickers and I followed Mercy's Tuesday sketch (MTSC38) I sewed on this card and I actually braved the zig-zag stitch setting! I practiced on a scratch paper quite a bit before I sewed on my beloved DP! LOL! The ribbon is from Martha (one of my super $1 finds at Big Lots).
Aren't those chip images the CUTEST? Here is a close up of the adorable chip coffee mug and steam!

This next card uses a JustRite Stampers Christmas set called Merry Little Christmas Centers and borders. I stamped the Santa hat 3 times and used some liquid applique for the trim. This one is definitely a CAS, just a scrap piece of DP, ribbon, some Copics and DONE!!

Thanks for stopping by and thank you all for the lovely comments and emails about my Verve project parade gift set! Isn't that tea cup da BOMB? If you missed it, it can be found here.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Ornamental Christmas (for sentiment) (Verve Stamps)
Paper - Vintage Cream, Dark Brown, Jolly by Golly 6x6 mini deck
Accessories - silver pearls (Michael's), Jolly by Golly chipboard stickers, Martha Stewart tag punch, sponge, silver cord, sewing machine
