Chistmas is holly and.....

Christmas is holly, and reds and greens.... and the smell of balsam in the air... All favorites for this time of the year... I love them all. I had always wanted to have a bouquet of holly when I lived up north... but it seemed so very expensive for a few branches... now I have huge trees all around me... We have one that is over 45 feet tall... and it is so wonderful... I love them all... but I leave them to grow... and do not disturb them during the holiday season...I just admire them... all year long...

With that said, you can understand why I have to make so many white cards with Red and Green, and with poinsettias, and with holly and with all the Christmas things... I love them... So here are a few more that are from the Poinsettia with Background collection on Pretties by Bonnie  I have really had a lot of fun with this collection... I hope that all of you have bought it are also enjoying it as I am...


For larger views of these cards, please go over to Pretties by Bonnie
I have a lot of cards to share with you...

This one I used the newest Cuttlebug Embossing Plus folder... called Carly... it is really so pretty... you will see a few more cards made with it... I had fun with this one... I also have a few extra right now... so if you want one, let me know...



the cardstock that I used on these cards is a very deep rich hunter green...it shows up black... but it is a lovely deep green... 


This card has a new embossing folder from Winter Frolic... there are some cute folders in that set... but this one was perfect for this... Wishing You Peace and Love at Christmas and Always... how perfect is that for me... I love it... With a border of holly and berries all around it... take a larger look over at Pretties by Bonnie






Now this is just the Carly embossing plus folder by Cuttlebug... I used the stencil part also... and then used a thin black marker to go around all the embossed areas...

And the center was sunken into the oval center... so soft and pretty...

I wanted to show you the beauty of this folder all alone...


With this one I added some things.... The border is a Fiskars punch... I love it... it is new to me and so sweet... don't know why I didn't have it a long time ago... I love the sweet little daisies...

Even though this is not a demur embossing folder, it certainly does allow this saying to go with it...













Here is the corner of this card... all the delicate parts... the edging, the sentiment and  then the embossing... I really love this look... ..










So much of the country is covered with snow and ice... so I had to make this card for Joanne Travis... who motivated me to make this... as she was going out to make a snowman... Oh I use to love to make snowmen with my kids... so much fun..

There's no people like snow people.... How very true... sometimes they are around for a long long time... just slowly lingering to catch as much of this life style as possible.... LOL  !!!

I used a Cuttlebug folder from Winter Frolic set for this... and used a marker to color all the embossing and then a little stickels to add the glittery snow effects...

The background... a New Martha punch set... wow... what a pretty one... The snowman is an Inkakadinkadoo stamp... look closely and you will see SANTA.... and his reindeer... and also little trees and all kinds of fun things... so cute...

Well Take a look at the top cards over on Pretties by Bonnie... and have a happy day creating all that you desire... Thanks for stopping in for a visit and please come back again... Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
