I have two cards that I'm sharing today so let's get started!  Have you seen the Pinkfresh Studio Holiday release?  Check out the Joy and Cheer set:


The December Days paper is a terrific background to the stamped images, isn't it?  This card is 3.5 x 5.5 inches.  It is just a smidge skinnier than a standard A2.  It makes so that the paper panel really pops, don't you agree?  All the Joy and Cheer images have been stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.  

Next up is my happy llama card...oh I adore llamas!  The Festive Llama set is just too fun:


I teamed it up with December Days paper and various stickers from the same collection.  

My card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:


That's it for me today!  I can't wait to hop around and see how my teamies were inspired!  Next up is the awesome Rebecca Luminarias!
