Cardz TV Stamps Design Team Challenge #14-Happy Holidays

I'm so glad you came by. I've just gotta tell ya about the new challenge we have going on over at Mary's Place. You know, Cardz TV. The Design Team have created projects using the theme "Happy Holiday's"! Yeah!!! And we want you to join in on our challenge! Create a card, layout or craft project for 'Any' holiday you'd like, using any colors you'd like. Now how easy is that? And Mary will be giving one lucky person that links a project a set of her awesome stamps. Check them out here, I'll wait on ya while you go and look. Told ya they are awesome, didn't I?! Our challenge runs from 12:01am, Friday, Sept. 7th until 11:59pm, Thursday, Sept. 13th. Mary will announce the winner on Friday Sept. 14th. May sure you get your project linked up by then so we can come by and admire your creation.
Now on to my cards. Yes, I said cards. I just had to make two. One is Spiritual and the other is a fun one. I have to get cards made for the Grands, too. Oh, by the way, I made Christmas cards. Bet you guessed that by now. My first card was really simple and quick to make. I used the Inspired Heart cartridge. The Wisemen are #33 on the overlay. I just love this cut. The star I cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge. Sorry, I don't have the page number for it. My sentiment is from the Classic Christmas stamp set that is one of Mary's earlier sets. I so love it. This sentiment is just perfect with this cut.

I used a super light tan-almost beige for the bg and under it I used a red piece for a little bit of color. My card base is white. For my other card I used a cut from The Cricut Craft Room. It is from Seasonal Characters. When I updated my Gypsy Girl all of the cuts that are digis for the Craft Room showed up since I renewed my Cricut Circle membership. Of course I had to go through them and see what was there. I really like this cute Santa. Just knew it would be perfect for one of the Grands cards. I cut him at 3.5 inches. The bg paper is from my stash and the holly and present were buttons with those loops on the back that I snipped off so they would lay flat. I popped Santa up on one thickness of foam tape. For my sentiment I used the Holly Jolly stamp set that is another one of Mary's earlier sets. I love this one, too. Okay, I love them all!!!!!

Now it is your turn to create and link. So looking forward to coming by and admiring your project. Hope y'all like my cards!!!! :)
