More Holiday Cards


I just love making holiday cards. Well, plain and simple, I just love the holiday season...shopping, baking, making special little gifts for the wonderful people in my life.
This first card is a total case from Ilina Crouse. You can see the original by Ilina here.



My second card was made for the SCS Sketch Challenge (SC254). I wish you could see the little twinkle on the image and the background paper. {My nighttime picture taking doesn't quite capture the pretty sparkle}. The papers are so pretty so I kept the central image fairly simple.

Have a wonderful day!!
