CHNC challenge 66: get sentimental

It's time for a new challenge on my CHNC blog and this time for challenge 66 I'm asking you to 'get sentimental' - make any Christmas card as long as it has a sentiment/greeting on it - easy peasy - and there's a fab prize on offer courtesy of this week's sponsor, Ooh la la Creations.

I've made two simple cards for this, both with striped backgrounds. The first one has a gold foiled topper on it with swirls for Totally Gorjuss 125: swirly whirly and the second one has a decoupaged topper.



I'm linking these for the following challenges:

And another Easter card

This Easter card is for Sketch Saturday 200:

I've used a mix of snippets originally from the Forever Friends springtime papers - another skip into Pixie's crafty snippets 13 playground - an offcut of scalloped border and three different ribbons. The stamps are from the Papermania moments of faith set, coloured with copics.
