Christmas Cards I Have Received From Stamper Friends

Quickly posting some beautiful Christmas cards I have received from wonderful stamper friends on Splitcoaststampers and some blogging friends. There is also a card from my talented sister in here. Of course, this picture does them no justice.  I love each one and will post them individually on Splitcoaststampers to my albums when time permits. Then, you can really see how gorgeous they are. Thanks to everyone and hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas.

BTW, some stampers know how much I love sheep so I tied a bow around mine on their necks and got them in the photo. :-)

A Christmas CAS card

Hope you all had a fun weekend getting ready for Christmas. The time is really winding down. I think I'm through shopping for all those gifts and that is always a relief. Hopefully, I'll be able to enjoy the rest of the week.

My card is for the Friends of Speedy TV challenge, week 12. We are asking for CAS cards this time and mine turned out to be a Christmas card. I think I'm finished with all my Christmas cards for this year. Of course, one may pop up here and there...just don't know.

I'm using an image from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company called Greetings of the Season, mini stamp set.
I love those pine cones and branches for Christmas or on a winter card. I stamped, colored, and then embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I think it looks a bit like snow coming down.
See the rest of my recipe below:

Paper: PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler

For the Queen

I made a CAS card today for the QFTD challenge #91. It was this past Friday and I'm finally getting one together and uploaded. I've been busy, busy...haven't we all?

The Queen this week is Christine aka whim6915 and I cased this card of hers. I am using an image from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company called Buffalo Spring and the sentiment is from the same company and is from the Happy Pansies set.

The card was so easy. I just stamped the image, punched an eyelet lace punch around the page from Martha Stewart and add a few pearls and that finished it.
