Down to the wire...

Is everything checked off your list?  I have about 4 more cards to make, plus some boxes to cut with my Silhouette, plus stalking email tracking to see if my gift to Mr Corgi will make it in time...eek!  But I do have some more cards to share!
First, a couple more Eat Cake Graphics Christmas cards:

Oh, how I love A Scarf for Ferguson!  Especially with that awesome October Afternoon night sky paper and some Waltzingmouse stamps, too.
As much as I love Ferguson, I do have a special love for Zero, and for putting different hats on him.  I almost went with my Santa hat theme, but then these antlers from Paper Smooches just called out to me.  The doghouse with lights is a Silhouette file.  I colored Zero with prismacolor pencils to look like my sister's dog, Molly. 
Can you name the movie?  Hint: It starts with e, ends with f, and has a l in the middle.  When one of my friends mentioned it was one of her favorite Christmas movies, I hopped right on the computer to start making it with some tracing and a pair of elf legs from the Silhouette store. I had to use this sweet candy patterned paper, and the Paper Smooches sentiment was just perfect for it, too.

This last card is the result of Mr Corgi deciding on Sunday afternoon that he did want to send cards to all his coworkers (15 of them).  
Fortunately, I never have to look far for a theme for his cards. I know what you're thinking, how in the world does an airplane qualify for a Christmas image, but if you take a look at our mantle, you'd be surprised to learn that yes, any and all airplanes are suitable for the holidays.  This was a Silhouette file, and I was able to cut out all 15 planes using only two sheets of shimmer paper and a few scraps.  The stamp is from Amuse (I love the shadow font effect), stamped in SU Cherry Cobbler.  And, yes, they were all finished and in the mailbox by Monday morning! 

Now it's time for this elf to get back to work!

Ah, husbands and last-minute card requests...like somehow they don't know how long it can take? Kudos to you for knocking it out of the park :)
I think my favourite of these has got to be A Scarf for Ferguson...watching Santa's sleigh soar through the starry sky...just awesome. I must say I'm pretty partial to the Fleas Navidad sentiment though!

Wow Meg! I just love ALL of them, but my fav is Ferguson!

Although Zero is a close second with the lights on the dog house!!!! lol

Wishing you, Mr Corgi and the pup a very Merry Christmas :)

Way to go on all those cards -- doggie, movie, plane-ey...all fab! I can't believe you made all 15 plane cards in one day! That's nuts. And fabulous, too, of course!

I bet you can guess which card is my favorite...especially since I'm looking at it right now in real life!!

Awesome cards, Meg! My mojo ran out before my need for cards did, but yours obviously didn't!

Gorgeous cards, Meg! Each is a work of art on its own. I can't believe you came up with so many different designs, and all amazing ones, at the last minute! Hope your holidays were merry. :D
