card-making blitz adventure

Either I counted wrong or remembered incorrectly, but I still don't have enough cards to mail to everyone I want to remember at Christmas.  I'm a little over-scheduled this week, too, so I needed some inspiration for quick-to-make cards.  I started with a Clean-And-Simple card inspired by the colors and snowflakes from The Card Concept:
stamp set - Endless Wishes (retired); ink - Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Night of Navy; card stock - Gold Foil, Very Vanilla, Night of Navy; Big Shot with Christmas Greetings thinlits

I used the Merry Monday candy cane theme with Lesley's sketch for The Challenge:
stamp sets - Merry Everything; Scentsational Christmas (retired); ink - Cherry Cobbler; card stock - Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White; designer series paper - Merry Moments; punches - 1-3/4" circle,  2-3/8" scallop circle

The colors reminded me of SU-per Challenges #115, so my third effort combined those with the Sweet Sunday Sketch 298:
stamp set - Peaceful Wreath; ink - Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler; card stock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Old Olive designer series paper - Merry Moments

At this point, I think I need three more.  I may need to recount again, but I'm going back in.  Meantime you more organized types should have time to play along - these challenges are still open:
