Peace and Animals for Christmas

I have two Christmas cards to share today - both with animals on them!   If you're following the party going on over at Papertrey -  today's challenge is to use a large word as your focal point.  I used the PEACE from one of the PTI Wonderful Words Holiday Die Collection as well as the deer dies from the  In The Meadow set.  The PEACE is embossed with dots and popped up on foam tape.  I used a stitched mat rectangle die from Lil'Inker Designs on the panel.
I'm also entering this card in the Merry Monday challenge -  to use an animal on your Christmas card.
 My second card was made for  the Merry Monday challenge as well. The stamps on this card are from Twas the Night Before Christmas by Waltzingmouse.  See the little mouse that's not stirring??!  The window is popped up on foam dots.

I hope you can stop by tomorrow (Tues) I'll be showing 3 wonderful new templates from Creations by AR!
