Some Hand-Made Christmas Cards

I wanted to share some of the lovely hand-made cards I've received this year, so here they are (in no particular order!):
This reindeer card is from Paula, the "punch art queen"!  I can't believe how much work went into this!  Isn't it amazing?
Treena made this beautiful bird card.  It's hard to see the details in the photo, but there is gold ink sponged ont eh embossing and around the edges - it is really stunning!
This beautiful, sparkly card is from Bea.  She used dazzling diamonds glitter over the image so it's shimmery like a snowfall.  Gorgeous!
This gorgeous card is from Susan.  I love this stamped image paired with gold and burgundy- just stunning!  Look at the shadow from the young Jesus. 
Martha made this card using a black and white photo of her yard, paired with Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand.  Isn't it lovely?

I hope you enjoy these as much as I have, and I hope your Christmas holiday is full of love and laughter.

Tonia, the paper on the reindeer card is Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake stamped with the Woodgrain stamp in Early Espresso.

The antlers and wreath are made with the now-retired Stampin' Up! Snowflake punch.
