Sketch #20 for Sketch Saturday

This card was made from Sketch #20 at Sketch saturday . It is also for Magnolia image challenge at Cococat's cardmaking .I attached a present on the mushrooms to make it more Christmas like.The present is by goldlabel stickers and colored with Bics and sharpies .I used my CB for the scallopped BG and it was inked with gold.
The ornament and stocking are cut out of gift tags, I think from target.I received them from a friend so I'm not sure . They are popped up .The sentiment is in Finnish and means a warm Christmas wish.
this is the sketch

Happy Succoth- חג סוכות שמח

Today started Succoth holiday ,it lasts for 7 days.
We just came home from Jerusalem where we had dinner in my Bil and his wife's Succah.The pictures are from there .
Wishing my family and friends a very Happy Succoth!

Happy Day ??....

I didn't really know how to call this card maybe a Happy day ??,lol . I left it without a sentiment so I can use it for whatever occasion later.
The card is made for two challenges at Cococat's cardmaking .#1
A Magnolia image challenge and #2 doodling .I do hope my flying birds count as doodling,lol.

I had this paper with the clouds and thought it would work out nicely with these Magnolia images.The dog is by Inkanikado and the little lady bird is by Jolee's.Both the dog and Tilda are popped up .Wish I knew how to shoot the photo right so you could see it.The sun is a sticker .
