A Couple of Quickies




Just thought I'd share a couple of really quick cards for Christmas.  It's that time of the year when you have to do a few 'git 'er done' cards for sure - or at least I do! 

The first one is using an old stamp from Stampin' Up and a snowflake die from Impression Obsession.  I love that cute snowman so will make at least one card with him every year.  I do notice I forgot to color his 'buttons' but it's ok since they match the dots on the scarf.    The second one is super clean and simple!  I understand that plaid is "in" this year but to me plaid is always "in" because I love it.  Another IO snowflake and a sentiment from SSS and it's a done deal.

Nothing special and nothing fancy, but I do have two more cards for Christmas completed.

Thanks for stopping by........

I just love that whimsical little snowman, and he looks perfect with his white buttons matching his white polka-dotted scarf! As for the plaid, I'm with you! I've always loved plaid, and this simple design is perfect! Have a great week ahead!

I am in our corner with the plaid. It has always been a favorite of mine in clothing, paper, blankets, whatever. I love that card with the white snowflake against the plaid. Your snowman is darling but he needs a little more fat on him. LOL I'm just jealous of his slim figure. I like that his buttons match the dots on his scarf. Have a great week.

Both are terrific cards Lynn! Beautiful snowflake and I love the snowman, he's a cutie for sure!

Bonnie said...

I love plaid too and the snowflake looks so cozy on it! And this snowman is a favorite with me. I have plans for him in the coming weeks. Love his polka dot scarf and the matching buttons!

Fabulous snowman, Lynn! I adore snowmen and would use them year 'round if I could find a reason. :-D Great plaid paper behind the snowflake. It gives a delicious pop of color to that card.

Great cards...the last one has an Outlander feel!

i'm chuckling b/c in my house the words "quick card" usually precede several days of struggling, smudging, cursing and looking for lost diecuts under the fridge. :0 jeff actually CRINGES in anticipation when he hears them, lol. (THESE however are gorgeous AND seem like they were somewhat straightforward so YAY FOR YOU!!!!) ♥
