Christmas Hearts

It's December and always a special time of year. I enjoy The Paper Funday Challenges for there is always something fun and unique:
The sponsor I choose this month was Jan's Digi Stamp Shop and the digital image called Caroling:
You know I always make at least 2 cards! That is because 2 digital images fit on one 8.5" X 11" watercolor paper. For the first card both the sentiment and images are from the digital set, but for the second card I used my own sentiments from a Simon Says Stamps Stamptember 2022 set by La-La-Land called Fabulous Holiday (no longer available).
As always, I printed the images with my laser printer onto Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Water Color Card Stock - the smooth side since I was coloring faces. I don't like the bumpy side for faces.
I colored both cards with my Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers except for the fur - I used Altenew's Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set.
I debated about turning these into "lighted" cards with Pear Blossom Lights, but felt they would be too thick to mail without a lot of extra postage. Of course, they would be perfect to give the card in person with a gift.

The die cut stitched edge is from Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Torn Rectangles Dies. I like not only the torn edge look, but the stitching, too.

Thanks for joining me today and thank you to Jan's Digi Stamps for being our generous sponsor and gifting us with this wonderful image and sentiment!
