Busy Christmas Season

I haven't had a chance to post because I've been busy with holiday things. I've been doing a little bit of baking (made Butter Tarts and Chocolate Shortbread), a little bit of shopping, a little bit of gift wrapping. But I did manage to squeeze in some time on Friday for Hero Arts Blog Hop featuring their new 2010 stamps. There's still time to check it out here. They've released a lot of new stamps and they are gorgeous! Can't wait to buy some and play!

I made a few really simple and quick holiday cards. The last ones for the season. I'm ready to move onto other holidays now.

This one was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The snowflake was punched out of paper I had coloured with Twinkling H2O's. Just added a sentiment and an embellishment.

These tree images (Denami Designs) were embossed, one in gold one in malachite, and mounted on metal paper.

There was a bit of embossing on this one with the sentiment and cloisonne tree (Michael Strong Rubber Stamps). The tree was mounted on text paper that has the definition of Happy and Joy on it.
Thanks for stopping by!
