Christina your cards are fabulous! I said I was going to follow your lead and do a few Christmas cards each month, but here it is and I can't bring myself to think of snow at all! I'm sick of winter and just want SPRING to come! hugs.

Oooppsss forgot to say... LOVE the deer card the best, and I love the 'star' hillside. So clever and play on the words with your sentiment. hugs.

Jingle said...

You do such great layouts on your cards! Always fun and different. I love these!

Jeanne J. said...

Look at you! 4 cards this time! Your cards always look so clean and well thought out Christina! I love all the contrast on the first - the red stripes next to the green, the bold sentiment and pretty bow on the second, your clever hills and snowy dot background with the deer, and that ric rac cut sentiment and your mad sewing skills!

Marybeth said...

Beautiful as always! Such a good idea to cut a bit of the doily off, love that idea and card.The star on that one almost looks like rusted tin or metal. Love the peace card ,beautiful work ,Christina!

Renee said...

You always do the most amazingly simple things but with the most astronomical results with these kits...

No favorite...you just always leave me inspired! :)

Kara said...

Sharron said...

LOVE all yours cards--but I always do! You make the most wonderful designs! I especially love the PEACE card and the one with the deer. Great paper to use for the hills and perfect embossing for the background!

Joyce said...

Wow--you did a great job, and it doesn't look like you struggled one little bit. I love all the sewing you did--it's such a nice touch that I wish I could add myself. I think my favorite card is the rolling hills with the deer, but they are all really great.

Tracey McNeely said...

Christina your cards are beautiful. I am in awe of your sewing skills, always so perfect. What you did with the deer in the hills is fantastic, love the embossed background, just like snow.

Kay Miller said...

All of your cards are just wonderful! Those sentiments are really cute! You did a beautiful job with this kit! I love the country look!

Lisa Petrella said...

Wow! You were a busy crafting bee with this kit!!! Love the rustic feel of these creations!!!!

TOTALLY swooning over those reindeer on the mini-print hills with the embossed snow falling. It's so fresh and different! You should have saved that one for the PC call : )

What a pretty set of Christmas cards Christina. Love the papers and the lovely stamped images. Great jump start on this year's stash! :)

Amy Kolling said...

I'm just in LOVE with that first card......Love that you paired those 2 patterns together and layered that kraft doily to the side!!! Adding in the stars and the rule of 3's with buttons was a perfect touch!!! Fab card!!!

Bethany Stellpflug said...

Such pretty cards Christina! I love all the layers on the first one! And that bow on the 2nd one is lovely! And I really love the 3rd card! It's so sweet with those deer! And the last one is wonderful! I love the nordic look!
