Two Christmas cuties

Ha, I so very nearly managed to stick to my 'No buying Christmas papers this year' resolution .. until I was in the craft shop buying tape and then this Dovecraft pack accidentally popped into my basket ;)  oops!

I thought I'd make a couple of Christmas cards tonight, using a Lili of the Valley stamp from last year.  Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Wink of Stella added to the falling snow and drifts, and also to the ribbon.  Clear gloss added to her glasses and to the falling snow.   Dienamics embroidered frame die used on both.

CARD 1:
(gold peel off sentiment from stash)

(ETA: I was a lucky winner at NBUS!)

CARD 2:
(Paper Smooches snowflake die;  old LOTV postmark sentiment)

This is adorable. This is just so darn cute. I love the image and your coloring is fabulous. As far as I'm concerned, you NEEDED this paper for this card to enter this challenge. That's all there is to it. You didn't want it, you needed it. Tell me I'm wrong, go ahead. ;) This is adorable and your layout is great accenting this cute LOTV image. GREAT card! Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'. Hugs, Gail
