Less Than One Month Until Christmas!!

Well if you saw my post from last night you can see my phone does not take great pictures!  But as promised I have a few cards to show you and there will be more on the way soon!  My housework has been greatly ignored this week but I am enjoying myself.  Last night I finished the majority of my Christmas gift shopping so all I need to do now is start baking.

Here is a better picture of my cute Snowman and Penguin card (I love punch art, it's so much fun).
I hope you can see them a little better!  A Real Red background embossed with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder is the background for my Punch art Snowman and Penguin.

Next is one of my favourite cards this year. I cased it from Julia's Cards.   I sponged my background and added a light blue too but the idea is all hers. Simple and pretty with a bit of bling is totally my style and this card is all that, plus it uses one of my favourite stamps "Dasher". 

 I used Night of Navy and Bashful Blue Ink for the background and I used black embossing powder for Dasher to make him pop.  In the card on the left I added only one rhinestone (a red one) to his nose but below I added a bunch of clear ones to his antlers.
The Last card I will show you today is another one of my favourites this year!  I just bought the "Lovely as a Tree" Stamp set (yes it's been around for years but I was slow with this one)  I love it!!  This card was displayed on a video on the Stampin Connection website and I made some variations but overall the idea came from Catherine Pooler.

I stamped the trees in Always Artichoke and stamped off some ink on the background images so there was depth.  I used a layer of Artichoke for the frame and some  Espresso Twine for the bottom (I don't have the stamp set Catherine used for the sentiment)  I added the little bell because I felt it needed something and I LOVE those little jingle bells! You may not be able to see it in the photo but the trees are glittery.  I just used my glue pen and added some Dazzling Diamonds.  This fulfills all of my favourite elements. Simple, Pretty with a bit of Bling :)
 Thanks for Looking today.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
