These cards were all quick and simple. I made them using the Cricut Creative Holiday Cards cartridge. Cricut posts cuts each week that you can use for free during that week and these were the ones posted a few weeks back. I make at least 40 cards each year to send to the VA home, so this was a quick and simple way to do it.

I used my embossing folders to emboss the deer and the poinsettia. 

This tree card was made by using double sided paper. The paper has an already embossed design on it and was solid green on one side and green and red striped on the other.

 A touch of glitter glue to add accent to the stockings.

A touch of Liquid Pearls in silver to the ornament tops.

This is a card I just decided to put together. I rescued the flowers off an old card I had made and decided to throw away. I made all the flowers on this card. I love making paper flowers!

I'm not the world's best drawer but every once in awhile I'll try to get artistic. I drew this weird shaped sled a few years back and colored it using colored pencils. It's been sitting in a pile of extras stickers and digital stamps and I decided to finally add it to a card to give a quirky holiday look.

  Thank you for taking the time to go through all my cards and read about them. Merry Christmas to you and yours and all the best in the coming new year!

Up next is Sarah.

Here's our line up in case you get lost:
