Seasons Greetings on a Christmas Kickstart Month

I'm the elf for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge this month.  This challenge is always about Christmas and this month, it's also about MINI-SLIMLINE cards, so get ready, get set, GO!

As guest, I was able to choose the challenge of the month, so if you don't like mini-slimline cards, blame me!  I'll gladly take the blame.  

The challenge starts May 2nd at 10:30 a.m. GMT or 2:30 a.m. Pacific time, San Francisco, USA and ends May 30th.  

The card base for a mini slimline card is typically 3" X 6" (7.63 X 15.24 cm).   These are approximate sizes and we won't be checking to see if your card meets the exact standard for either size. )

I decided to make a simple but fun card for my first card - first? - yes, I had to make two.  I used the same darling Santa in both my mini-slimline cards.

Second Card below
Supplies used on both cards:
Whimsy Classic Santa digital stamp
Momenta Nested Borders Rectangles
Distress Ink Vintage Photo
Copic markers

Card 1
Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing folder - (older folder)
Elizabeth Craft Designs Igloo (sign)
I believe the sentiment "Stay Warm" is from Elizabeth Craft Designs

Card 2
Elizabeth Craft Designs Sleigh - sleigh (sleigh only)
Elizabeth Craft Designs Santa's Sleigh  Gifts & trees from paper scraps)  
The Paper Studio Embossing folder (older folder)

I'd like to enter the challenges:
