Holiday Humor Cards from Crackerbox Palace!

It's another Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing some humorous holiday cards I made with stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning are below.
But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is                                                     Jane Luxem!  Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog:  “Very pretty cards!
Jane, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link.
My cards today are humorous holiday cards. I love to use humor when I make cards and Crackerbox Palace has so many funny funny stamps. I combined several CBP stamps on my first card to make a swing card sure to crack up the person who receives it. Santa is stuck in the chimney and you can check off if you have been naughty or nice. Then you flip the card open to see the punch line inside:

I added some snowflakes and the red “brick” on the sides are made with an embossing folder from Sizzix.

My second card features a very cool reindeer and the perfect sentiment. I made the ornament shaped card with a circle nestabilities die and just drew the top of the ornament shape by hand. I admit the original idea came from Pinterest, but there was not a template so I just made my own. I paper pieced the cool reindeer, then cut out the shape by hand.
So would you like to win the stamps featured on one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our every other week blog candy:

 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the Wednesday two weeks after I post at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after we announce your win, and we can’t reach you through a blog, your prize will be forfeited.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

I am entering these cards in the challenges at CreativeCard Crew for Fancy Folds and at Cupcake Craft Challenge for Paper Piecing.
