A Little Christmas Inspiration...

Good morning...it's cooling off here just a bit (more signs that fall is coming)!  The last minute preparations are happening for the start of school next week.  Important preparations....making sure we have a couple more friends spend the night tonight!

Just a quick share of some Christmas cards I made!  First up is a card using all kinds of yummy SU products for this week's Stampin' 411 Challenge.  I added a few rhinestones to the Christmas tree to make it pop a little more. And many thanks to the Stampin' 411 ladies for choosing my card for last week's Showcase!
The second card is a very simple card for the Clean & Simple challenge.  I've been wanting to use this Basic Grey paper for a while with the sweet little deer. And of course, for both of these card, I'm never far from a bow...love my ribbon!
Happy Saturday!

I have to confess to a secret love for Basic Gray paper - it's always called to me! Just don't tell on me!

These are both fabulous Lynn! I love the tree on the first card, and I love how you used the patterned paper on the 2nd card to spotlight the deer!
