Quick n Easy Holiday Cards

The snow has finally begun falling here in
Northern Illinois.  It's waves of flurries, but it is
sticking, so it's time to switch coats and keep 
the gloves handy.

It's a great day to share just a few very easy
projects that are perfect for quick holiday cards
and extra large gift tags.

One of my favorite stamp sets this season is this one
from PTI, 'Wreath for all Seasons'.
It really comes down to a little stampin' and layerin'!

This sweet little set is from Lizzie Anne Designs.
It's called 'Glad Tidings' and it's also the set I used
on the projects at the top.  Love that tree!
This set is retired over at Lizzie Anne, but last
I looked, they have it on sale for 50% off!!!

Lastly...this sweet little card features a little
EF from Sizzix using Co'ordinations cardstock,
which I sanded after embossing.  The little bird
is from BasicGrey and the sentiment is a StudioG.

These projects are pretty simple so I think you can
re-create them just by looking at them.  All are
CAS and so quick.  So don't hesitate to
make your own holiday cards
this season!

We've had snow here since Monday. My sister was thrilled, she was 39 on Monday and has never had snow on her birthday. Love your cards, I sooooooo need to find my corner punch, it makes such a difference :)
