Gorgeous Christmas Cards

I just have to share a couple of gorgeous Christmas cards that I received in yesterday's mail! The first is from my girlfriend Kathy. She was totally inspired by Judith (Stamps by Judith) when we saw her at an Expo in St. Charles, IL. If you've ever seen Judith or her daughter Heather stamp, you know exactly what I mean! Judith takes one or two stamps, and she creates a masterpiece!


Speaking of masterpieces, look at what Kathy created! This tree is created with a twig stamp, and the tree is "built" by stamping many times to create the tree. Then, look at the light bulbs! They're colorful, and they have a clear lacquer on them. Plus, there's a star and background stamping! WOW! Kathy, this is amazing! I also love the green card base. The shiny swirls are fantastic! Thank you so much Kathy! I truly appreciate handmade cards!


Next, this is from Patsy! I just love this! I love the hand doodling around the scallop square. The white dots and doodles are perfect! I also LOVE the felt stars. They're so thick! The tree embellishment with the rhinestones is fantastic! Thank you so much Patsy!

These are both so gorgeous, I just had to share! I need to run MANY errands today! I hope I get done at least half of what I really want to get done! If so, that would be a productive day! Thanks for stopping by!

Glad you liked the card :) I love Kathy's too - those lights on the tree look amazing!

Sorry the craft fair didn't go so well - I really don't know why as your stuff looked amazing! Loved it! I think, like you said, it had a lot to do with the organisation of your area if people didn't necessarily know you were there! :(
