Xmas cuties

Yes, more Xmas cards!  I've got so many to make that I've decided to make them in 2s and hopefully that will get them done a little quicker!  It usually takes me hours just to make the one card so any precious minutes will help!

So today's two cards uses the new Cherry Kisses release at Pollycrafts and I am entering it into the Pollycraft Monday challenge to use chipboard (the tags - I papered and decorated them)...






Those Cherry Kisses are uber cute, no?  I love colouring them in - but I suppose I just love colouring anything in!  My hubby always teases me about it - "shall we get you some crayons for Xmas?"  Yeah funny.  But the joke's on him - if only he knew how much those Copics cost, he he!!

I am also entering this card into the Raise the Bar challenge to use trees.  Enough waffling - off to make more cards!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Wassail paper pack, My Minds Eye Festive paper pack
Stamps: Pollycraft Cherry Kisses Warm Christmas and Merry Little Christmas Tree digi stamps, CC Designs sentiment (inside card)
Mediums: Copics, Fluffy Stuff
Accents: lace from stash, BasicGrey fibres, American Crafts ribbon, Papermania pearls
Tools: Tim Holtz distressing tool, EK Success border punch and Nestabilities label dies (inside card)

Hi Mary, another two great cards, you're a very talented lady... to the copic's I agree my hubby is the same I also say "oh that old colour I had it for ages" or guess what instead of telling them how much they cost I sometimes just state how much I saved by buy a few together..;D what devious minds we have.. hehe

I love these cards, Mary. You have a style all your own and it's wonderful. BTW, yes, I shopped in London, Ontario. Believe me, if I'd gone to yours, I would have let you know!! Maybe one day?!! Hope your snow has subsided, they are getting a big dump in our London, (Kimmie's area), but we are escaping it so far.
