A Few Christmas cards

I am seem to be running way behind this year but managed to whip out a few Christmas cards along with a few challenges. Christmas Cone- Using the Pine cone collage from I Brake For Stamps and the new Antiqued Glimmer tutorial from TJ Dec/Jan newsletter.You should see the shimmer of this one IRL. The beautiful papers are by Paper Temptress The sponsor this month at
Gingersnap Creations


For the new challenge at Ink On My Fingers Hels has a "The Holly and the Ivy" challenge going on this week. be sure to check them out. I did a card using a omni gel transfer,crackle paint- I kind of overdid it with that but it sure was fun.

O.K. I will admit it,I have stars on my mind and made the background star from music paper. Along with a few rolls. No I don't mean Santa's belly! LOL. The stamped image is the darling Santa from I Brake For Stamps If you use code SAVE10LYNN when ordering you can save 10%.
Happy Holidays!

Hello Lynn! I love your beautiful creative 'star' cards you made. I was wondering if you would allow me to use them in a picture collage for the homepage of my Victorian yahoo group in December. I would submit the finished collage to you for approval first, of course.
Thank you for your kind consideration, Karla
