I've got two cards to share today. First up is for the Just Add "R" challenge at Just Add Ink. I had fun arranging these Authentique papers and gave myself points for putting another (tiny) dent into the patterned paper stash. The reindeer is from Essentials by Ellen and I thought he needed a little jingle bell for just a bit more holiday cheer.

Next up is a card for the Furry Friends challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday challenge. The team highlighted Newton's Nook stamps this week so I made another Winston card and paired him with a Paper Smooches sentiment. My background was inspired by Jeanne of A Kept Life who has made a bunch of brilliant cards with bright striped backgrounds that I LOVE like here, here and here. Check out her blog if you never have - she has a fun, bright and cheery style.
