It's Christmas Eve!

Aren't you excited?!?!
I can't wait to watch Chloe open her presents tomorrow and have the yummy smells of everything cooking in the house!! Today I have one last trip to make to the grocery store, I must make a list.
My friend, Karen, arrived yesterday from Calgary. We've had a blast so far! She got Chloe a Wii for Christmas so we've been busy bowling, boxing and playing arm hurts this morning!
Chloe and Karen are still sleeping and Brian got up at 7:00 to head to HE is the shopper in this house ;) I thought I'd share my two cards I made yesterday for a couple of blog sketch challenges.
This first one of Hanna is so spring like. Love the colours in the Uptown girl Designer Paper from SU!. This one has just enough Almost Amethyst in it. I flipped Jen's sketch for the ribbon and flower.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Hanna
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Confetti White and Uptown DP
Inks: VersaFine Black Onyx, Saffron, Celery, Amethyst, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip, Temp Turq
Accessories: Slot Punch, Ticket Punch, Soft Subtles Brads, Flower, May Arts Ribbon, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter
This one is a nice clean looking card, or at least I think so. It is a sketch from Lauren. I don't often use Sahara Sand so I pulled it out to use as a base. I originally stamped the flowers with Ruby Red but then decided after finishing the card to add some red stickles over top. I think it looks nice. What do you think? Too much for a simple card? The scalloped edge is made with 1/2"Circles that I punched out and then glued down to the edge of the Old Olive CS.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Stem Silhouettes, Circle of Friendship
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Soft Sky, WW, Fall Flowers DP
Inks: Old Olive, Soft Sky, Ruby Red
Accessories: 1/2", 1", 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Red Stickles, Dimensionals
Merry Christmas to everyone!

These are great!! Love Hanna. And no...I don't think the other one is too simple.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. And have fun with the Wii!! We bought one for Christmas for our girls is a blast!! My arm still hurts from 3 days ago. ;0)
