Christmas cards w/candy

Christmas is just right around the corner.  It just seems like we just did Thanksgiving. I have been working on these for two days and watching Linda video on how to make these.  Thanks Linda I really enjoyed making them.  I don't have any spellbinder dies, so I had to use my cricut expression2 to get the openings.  This was not an easy feat for me because I haven't used the center point feature until now. Used a lot of my scraps for practice until I got it right.

Here are the first three that I did yesterday.

This is the first 3  I used three different paper stacks.
This paper is from Recollections City Sidewalk Christmas stack.
The wreath on the front is from Teresa Collins Dec 25th cart. The poinsettias are from M's.
The Merry Christmas is a stamp that I had gotten from HL a couple of years ago..

This paper is from graphic 45 The Twelve Days of Christmas. I just love this stack.  its so pretty. I used some of the flowers from M's.  I also used the chipboard piece that came with the stack.

This paper is from HL All Seasons paper.  I used the dog from CAC2  The gingerbread man is from CAC2 also.  I used mini google eyes on the dog and the gingerbread man.  The Joy was part of another paper stack that I had.
All of these measure 5x7 when finished.

This one is 4 1/4x 5 1/2 when finished. The bell and the wreath are from the DEC 25th cart.

Thanks for looking and have a great day. 

Merry Christmas everyone.  I will be going up North for Christmas and won't have access to a comp until I return on Dec 28th.  So this will be my last post for two weeks.  Have a safe Christmas
