Warm Winter Wishes

I just love how this card turned out.  I colored up this little cutie back at the end of summer when the temperatures were in the 90's.  It was hard to imagine at that time that it would ever be cold again.
Again for this card I used my spellbinders dies to create the card shape.  I love the red and grey colors together.  The greenery is actually a small bit cut from a floral spray I bought at Michael's. It works just perfectly with an added bow as an embellishment on my cards. I used some white embossing enamel to look like falling snow and added a bit of cheese cloth between a couple layers of paper.

Mistletoe Kisses

This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments. The theme is Christmas for Your Love + A Sentiment.
It's our last challenge of 2016.

Santa and his reindeer look like they are giving Eskimo kisses so this image is just perfect to send to someone you love.  I'll probably give to my husband or one of my sons so they can say, "mooom!"
The sentiment actually says "Snowflake wishes and eskimo kisses" but I just inked up the mistletoe kisses.

Reindeer Games

Today starts the last challenge of 2016 at Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra Challenge.
Are you ready for Christmas? 
I'm not.  Despite starting in January with my Christmas cards, I still have much to do.
I used my spellbinders dies to create this card shape.  I think I got into a rut with square cards so I am trying to mix it up a bit.
This cute little reindeer is from Bugaboo Stamps and they are sponsoring the challenge.
