4 Months 'til Christmas

Well another month closer to Christmas.  It's time to start thinking about gift ideas.  I am the first stop on the hop this month and as usual we will be showing one card using a die cut machine and the other using a stamp and a colouring medium.
For my first card I used my Cricut E2, Gypsy and the Christmas cartridge which was a free add on to the Gypsy.  I have wanted to use this cut for awhile.  The background paper is printed from the Vintage Papers cartridge and the Imagine.  I add some Dew Drops and a silver glittery pipe cleaner.  Isn't that perfect for tinsel.
 My second card is a digi from KL Dezigns.  I added the stockings cut from the Simply Charmed cartridge to the fireplace and  used a brad to attach them.  The background paper is from the Recollections Frosty Cabin stack.  I thought it looked like wallpaper.  I added a bit of Gelly Roll glitter pen to the fire.
