Trying to get caught up on Christmas cards

I'm starting to feel as if I'm running out of time to get my Christmas stuff finished. I know it's ridiculous, but it's already the 6th EEKKK! On a happy note, I did put up the outside decorations today. I still have a few decorations to put up in the house. As you can see I am sitting on the couch with a kitty in my lap and another pressed to my side watching The Office as I blog.
K, I'm going to show you a few cards I made last night. You'll notice they are oddly similar. Basically I colored 1 Santa, stuck him in the card and decided he should be a different color. Then I ripped him off, colored a different one and swapped them out.

Santa and Sleigh are from Starving Artistamps Santa's Sweet Shoppe. The paper is Basic Grey Wassail and the cardstock is Kraft from PTI. The ribbon is PTI as well. I couldn't fit the sentiment on the front of the card so I guess it will go on the inside instead.

And the other Santa...

This time the DP is from Stampin Up! I can't recall the name right now, but it was in the special mini catalog and I just got it the other day. See, Santa and his red Stickled body just doesn't go with the other card. He too is colored with Copics and SU! markers. The sleigh is covered with Crystal Effects and is sitting on a bed of diamond stickles. The cardstock and ribbon are both PIT.

OK, off to decorate another tree! Happy Saturday!
