My First Christmas Cards of the Year

I cannot believe that I actually made two Christmas Cards today - usually I'm scrambling around, frazzled with only seconds left, trying to get cards made.  Not this year...I made a vow to myself that I would try to get as much Christmas stuff done by the end of November (this includes the shopping as well), so that I can actually enjoy what's happening around me...wish me luck :-)

The first card is for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge:


And here's one more - I combined this week's Runway Inspired Challenge and CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.

(LOVE this outfit!)
