Getting a head start!!!!!!

I'm trying to get a head start on the X-mas season this year, unlike last year where I was scrambling to get all my cards done in time.
These ones are quite simple, but I have a few in the works that are new to me, techinque wise, and hopefully they turn out ok.

This card was easy peasy because I just drew the gift with the bear peeking out, added a few embellishments and some sparkle on the ribbon.

A quich stamp, a scrap piece of wrapping paper from last year as a background, a small piece of felt cut into two small mittens, and some gold string.

I'm sure I've had these letters for way too many years, so I thought why not use them on SOMETHING this year. A bit of X-mas paper trimmed with scalloped scissors, some bling, a piece of ribbon tied into a bow, a candycane, and a little star . Another quick and easy card done.

This card looks so plain, but trust me it's not. What you can't see is that I embossed this whole card, Ifirst did the green and heat embossed that, then the red. I took the flowers and died them a very pretty green to match the card front, and just the tips of the small flowers to match the red.
