I feel the Christmas season approaching


Hi everyone, what a cold rainy day. I think it rained most of the afternoon, and it is quite chilly out there. makes me want to bake, or make some soup or something.
I made 2 cards tonight, The first one a Bella, but I am unsure of her name. I received her from a RAK on SPS. I am unsure of this card, I like it as far as the idea goes, but the ribbon is not quite right. The sketches of both cards came from an add in Paper Crafts magazine. I like how the second one turned out, I love that stamp. I think I received it from Jacquie, my Bella Sister. You know it is funny how I don't think I would have purchased this stamp, but now that I have colored it in and used it, I LOVE it!! Just reminds me to keep an open mind. Have a great night, hope all is well.

Hi Carri,
I love both of your cards. It is so nice to see the bright red being used on both the Bella - Snowbunny card and the birds. Love your Christmas paper and the other colours you chose to put with them. Are the birds a bella stamp? I can't recall seeing them on the site. Sure do like the little guys!

Carri...you should cut out stamped images of holly leaves and use red brads to attach to a card. the brads would look like holly berries.

Love the layout on the bella card - such a good one to use on those images -- I'm sure I'll be using it one day!!
