Merry Monday #222, The Flower Challenge #2 and HLS Christmas

We got our first glimpse of snow this morning but that's all it was. Nothing on the ground - thank goodness.  But it's coming.

I have a couple of Christmas cards for you today.  Up first is the one for Merry Monday.
We have to use red, white and gray and these mints from CP did the trick. Once they were stamped they looked rather flat so I cut a stencil with the die and clear embossed each little candy.  For some reason the extra candy looks a little yellow.

The next card is for The Flower Challenge (special occasion) and HLS Christmas (watercolor).
I platinum embossed and watercolored this PB poinsettia last Christmas and it's been in my UFO bin. When Michele gave me this embossed shimmer paper I knew it had found a home.

I'm so glad you dropped by.  I hope your weekend is going well.
