Christmas Is Coming.

Don't all faint, wow, two posts in one day, on a roll or what!!
This time it's my cards for my buddies over at our little Christmas Card Club.
Now the first one is not my usual and it's a wee bit late.
This one is for Sue P. Her theme for the last two weeks was the  12 Days of Christmas.
All I had for this one was some lovely paper with the 12 days on it so I used one of the squares, added some ribbon and lace, holly and  berries and ta da.... my easy peasy card.
Still got eight squares left too.
My next one took rather more time. I sort of got carried away with the Frantage and die cuts, I really wanted it to sparkle.
This one is for Christine, and her choice is to have a Religious Theme.
The stamp I chose to use is by Lily Of The Valley and is called
'Angel Gabriel'
Such a cutie.
I thought 'First Christmas' suited it perfectly.
Hope this fits the bill Christine?

  2. Hi Sue - the 12 days is a corker for my theme 'cos you have ALL 12 on there! I think it is beautiful. As for the Religious themed one, well this has one of my favourites images 'cos it is from LOTV! I love all the sparkle and the Frantage is amazing. I have a few colours but am a bit 'scared' of them. I should have a practise with them.

    Hugs to you - these are both lovely.
