Important news and Quick & Easy Christmas cards

NUMBER 1 important news:
Take a peek at this combination package of Core'dinations. A new reveal for CHA was a couple of packages that combined papers that go together well. I want to brag for a minute because that is my layout pictured with this combination pack.
NUMBER 2 important news:
I just received the exciting information that CutCardStock.com will be carrying some Core'dinations cardstock for your online ordering. One of the lines they will be carrying is the new Jenni Bowlin cardstocks that are just amazing to work with.

I wanted to share a couple super quick and easy Christmas cards I put together. I have been inspired with the Holiday posts over at Moxie Fab in celebration of the Holiday issue coming out soon. I thought these fit the FUN & CUTE category.
What inspired these two cards are the penguin stickers.
I just love to find a little package of stickers were there are several images that will work on cards and work well for making a set of cards. This set has a number of adorable little penguins on it.
The colors in these little guys were a completely perfect match to these We R Memory Keepers papers. WRMK are some of my absolute favorite papers to work with because the various patterns in a collection go together so well.
Making Memories rub-on Christmas/Holiday sentiments were used for both cards. Plus, you can see more uses for my border punches. Oh how I love border punches and the wonderful little accent they give.
The little circles are punched out of one of the prints and they were layered to a white, scallop punched out circle and added to the card with foam tape.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
