Time to play with Christmas toys!

ETA:  I was so excited when Sara Moreno at Sassy Studio Designs liked my cards so much that I was the featured artist!  Yeah!  I have some more exciting news coming soon, but I'm not allowed to share, yet.  Stay tuned for more fun creations!
I am starting with 3 cards I made from scraps.  Everything except for the  bases was a scrap!  This first card is from yesterday's layout.
 I recently won these adorable images from Sassy Studio Designs.  Since my daughter is a huge fan of Disney, she really wanted me to get the Disney princesses!  So for the Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge, you were supposed to make a Thank You card.  Here is a thank you card I made with a leftover rub-on.  I also got to play with my new Copic markers for the first time!  I'm certainly not good at using Copics yet, but I think I did okay for the first time.  Now....only the dresses and faces in the images are Copics.  The hair and pumpkin are SU markers.  All other supplies are SU.
 Here is another little scrap card - for a total of 3.  Since I was out of thank you rub-ons, I decided to do a Happy Birthday card - what little girl wouldn't like a Tangled birthdya card with blingy flowers?  The Copic Creations challenge was to use bling, so I used some leftover Jolee's Boutique purple flowers with rhinestones in them. 
Finally, I found a great sketch by Liz Chidester over at The Scrappiest.  On this one, I decided to use the new vintage flower embellishments in Rose Red and my new Glimmer Mist/Glimmer Screens.  I was so pleased with the results! 
Paper:  Sahara Sand, Sweet Pea DSP
Ink:  Rose Red, Bermuda Bay pen
Accessories:  Scallop square chipboard, distressing kit, sponge daubers, Vintage flower embellishments (available in 2 more days!), shiny pink border and journaling spot (Making Memories), Chipboard letters/flowers (K& Company), Aqua rhinestones (Kaisercraft), Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Screen
