Christmas in June

I have caught the Christmas bug early this year. I'm so glad I've recently found a few new Christmas challenge blogs. They really inspire me to keep chugging along, making two or three Christmas cards per week. I'm excited to get to December with a whole lot of Christmas cards to choose from and no stressful, boring mass production.
This first one is for Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge which is to NOT use ribbon or brads and to use the color red. I also used the sketch from this week's Little Paper Shop Challenge. (I flipped it) The image is from the Stamping Boutique.

This next one is for the Winter Wonderland Challenge which was to use traditional Christmas flowers. I chose holly and I used the sketch from this week's CPS Challenge.

I'm obviously getting a lot of use out of my Snow Dots and Snowflakes embossing folders. Can you tell, those are two of my favorites.
