Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells ... OMG am I singing Christmas Carols already???

Good Afternoon Friends!

Would you believe they are calling for a couple of inches of snow here in NE Ohio tonight!  YIKES!  I'm not ready!  But, since I'm already working on Christmas Cards and humming Christmas Carols ... 
Maybe I'm more ready than I thought!  LOL!

I had a request for a few sets of Christmas cards, 
so I thought I'd share what I've been working on ...















  AND




















I found both of these images over on Pinterest as free printables and I just love the 'vintage' Santa and think my customer will too.  Since I was able to fit 4 images on a page and printed 2 sheets ... that left me with 2 additional cards to create outside the 'sets'.

Here are the 2 'extra image' cards I created with my first Santa ...
(Click on any image to enlarge.)


 And, here are the two from the 2nd Santa ...

Can you see the sparkle on Rudolph's nose, around the image matting and under the row Martha Stewart border punch row of trees/snowmen?




























I have used my new Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3557 Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set and Coordinating Sun Kissed Fleur Die for my flower.  The greenery was created using another new (to me) die from Cottage Cutz #506 Ivy.
A little extra touch of sparkle has been added to this card as well, using Red & Diamond Stickles.

A few challenges I'd like to enter into are:
Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Punches & Dies (stamps used for inside verses)
Challenge 4 Everybody #33 - Anything Goes

Stay warm (or cool depending where you are, lol) and as always ...
