Christmas Cards from Friends!

I wanted to share a few handmade Christmas cards that I've received from some of my friends.

This one is from my dear friend Carol in Pennsylvania. Isn't it just gorgeous? I've said before how much I love elegant cards, and this one truly is elegant and beautiful!

Thanks Carol...it warms my heart to receive this fabulous card from you. And the message inside was so, so sweet.

This adorable round card is from my Canadian friend Tinla. Isn't it precious? I love the Elzybells stamp, and the way she used her Nestabilities to cut and emboss the card and layers. Her coloring is flawless, and she added some Stickles to make it sparkle.

Beautiful job, Tinla! Thank you ever so much for your thoughtfulness and your sweet, sweet note inside. :-)

The gingerbread card is from my good friend Shirley in Shreveport. She is always so thoughtful to send me handmade cards for my birthday as well as other occasions. I don't receive as many handmade cards as you might think, and they always mean so much to me.

Thanks, Shirley for this sweet and adorable card! I absolutely love it!

And last, but not least is this card from my friend Sally, also in Shreveport. Sally's cards are always very unique and classy. She cuts out a lot of images, and does so with such precision.

Great card, Sally! Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness!

Now I'm going to make myself wrap some Christmas gifts. Honestly, I don't want to do it, but I must. I think time is running out, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a great Wednesday!

WOW! You've made me blush again Michelle :) I'm glad you liked my card. I love the other cards from your friends too. The cute gingerbread cookies look so cute with that happy red color. I've never tried to make a round card before, but I might be inclined to give that a try after seeing this cute one. And those trees! how beautiful! I can't imagine doing all that intricate cutting of images. Beautiful! Getting hand made cards is great isn't it? TFS:)
