Christmas Saturdays




Hi folks, saturdays are rapidly becoming "Christmas Card" day on my blog! I think it is probably a good idea really, makes me look organized haha!
The 1st card is for "Bah! Humbug!" challenge#16, which was to use snowflakes in some way. I thought the little kitten from Sleikje looked like he was playing with the snowflake as it fell (the flake is much lighter and glittery in real life). The background paper is a photo of some frosty leaves "blown up".
The 2nd card is for Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge#17, which was "Christmas Wreath and/or Glossy accents". I did both. Didn't have a wreath so I made one by cutting out a flower template, overstamping with various leafy stamps, then highlighted the holly leaves with glossy accents( berries with Holly Red stickles). Abit of distressing on the edges adds dimension.
Off to dig now! Veggie patch here I come!!!
love as always Gina x x x
P.S. Cowgirl Up Sunday Challenge Launch Tomorrow!!!!
