This is the last week of the challenge Cute and/or Quick. And it seems that all month long I have posted someone else's work on Thursdays. So in keeping with that theme here are two "Merry Christmas" cards I received from two special friends.

Thank you ladies for such lovely cards.
LG759) can be used anytime of year...not just Christmas, but she has added the Merry Christmas (LS92) stencil for this seasonal occasion.

DGP). Then the background was our new fireworks embossing folder (FJ886) using a matte gold cardstock...I like how she cut it diagonally to follow the same line she used with our holly die (DL3005). She centered the nested smaller ornament die (DG674) after paste-embossing it with the new poinsettia stencil and again gold embossing paste. This one is gorgeous too! And elegantly simple. Thank you again, Linda, for the beautiful card.
Now for those of you who have stopped by please take time to leave my friends a welcoming comment.
