Christmas Cards, Boxes and Tags

**WARNING - Picture Heavy Post**

Hey y'all!  I'm writing a quick post to show off my last few Christmas cards and presents! I swear they were handed out on time, just posted late. LOL

This adorable image is Little Dancer 2 from A Day for Daisies. She was colored with Copics, and Stickles were added to the red trim.  Papers are scrap pieces from DCWV, brads are from my stash. Oval shape is from my Nestabilities, and the strips were punched on each end with a circle to give it the flag look.
A Day for Daisies: Anything Goes
PaperPlay: Christmas
Pollycraft: Punch It
Sketch 'n' Stash: Sketch
The Play Date Cafe: Photo Inspiration

For this card I used Old World Santa from Bugaboo.  Isn't he adorable?!?  He was colored with Copics. Papers are from DCWV, large snowflakes are punches from Martha Stewart; ribbon, gems and little snowflakes from my stash.  Sentiment from Hero Arts.
Cute Card Thursday: Sketch

These boxes were created with my Martha Stewart Scoreboard.  Papers are from Stampin' Up.  Ribbon from Michaels.  The adorable snowman and mouse image is from Spyder's Corner. (Thanks, Diane!!)  I colored the image with Copics. (Also, I forgot to take a picture before signing the boxes!  Whoops!)
My Time to Craft: Winter Pals

These boxes were also created using my Martha Stewart Scoreboard.  Papers from DCWV.  Images from Simply B Stamps, colored with Copics.  Ribbon from my stash.  (I learned from my earlier mistake and took the pictures FIRST.)  The second box was created for a Dude Time Doodles challenge...but I spent to much time relaxing instead of posting and am getting it posted one day past the deadline.  Whoops!
Crafty Catz: Santa's Hat (girl box)
Penny's Paper-Crafty: Holiday Gifts

This tag went on a bottle of wine for my Aunt.  The image and sentiment are from Wendy Made.  The holly on the top I drew myself.  Colored with Copics and Stickles.
CES Challenges: Party, Party, Party
Paper Sundaes: Celebrate
Pile it On!: Bling It Up!
Sweet Stampin: Sparkle and Bling
Totally Gorjuss: For Someone Special

This tag was for my Uncle, and went on a bottle of Captain Morgan's.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite Christmas songs by Jimmy Buffet.  The image was colored with Copics and distressed Stickles for the sand.  Paper, holly and ribbon from my stash.

This image is from Dilly Beans, and was created for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog...but I missed the deadline.  Like I said...too much vacation.  (Or not enough?)  The image was colored with Copics, papers from DCWV, ribbon and gems from my stash and sentiment from Hero Arts.  Here's the sketch that inspired me: 

Charisma Cardz: Anything Goes
Digital Tuesday: Winter Wonderland
Do You Stack Up: Stripes
Scrapbook Sisters: Anything Goes
Bearly Mine: Anything Goes

Phew!  Thanks for sticking around...I'll have more cards to post shortly, and then stick around for something **really** fun! You won't want to miss it!

Lovely cards! I especially like the snowman. I looked in my stash of digis and I have him! I wish I would have remembered him before Christmas. I definitely would have used him. I think I will do a card with him tonight. He is from Spyder's Corner.
