Christmas cottage card - Holiday Home

I've started making Christmas cards, inspired by some dies I purchased recently.
This little house in the Holiday Home set is one of my favourites and I love the greeting, too.
The wreath around the edge plus the snowflakes finished it off nicely.

I think I'll have trouble giving this one away ...

Spring Blossoms

A birthday card I made this week for a stamping friend.
I love colouring with Prismacolor pencils on coloured cardstock, and especially seeing the white pop against the background. But when I tried adding white trim to the card it didn't seem quite right, so I dulled the white blossoms a little by colouring a very light layer of tan over the top.
