Blessings and Wishes to All

Hello Crafty Friends,
Thank you for stopping by again! I appreciate you taking time from your busy holiday weekend and leaving some crafty love. I have been busy making projects and sharing since I can't do any more shopping...we spent too much money Thursday night and Friday on all the fabulous deals. I even started wrapping some of the presents this afternoon, so the kids wouldn't see what we got them.
 Now I am working on three different types of treat bags for my students and co-workers. Once my daughter sees them she may even want some for her friends and teachers. Those will be shared later!
Here are two cards I finished earlier today.
I used Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge for the angel, which was cut at 1 3/4" from p. 53.

I added gold glitter glue to the angel's wings and scattered gold sequins on the starry background.
Same Sketch, but Different Colors
I also used the same cartridge, Joys of the Season, for the rocking horse (p. 57), which was cut at 1 1/2". White sequins were randomly scattered in the background and adhered in bottom right corner.

I love the bunched ribbon technique. I think it adds a slightly different look. If you want to see a pictorial, you can click here. Hope you will try!
I used this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches for both of these cards.
