On a Roll!

Before I get to my cards, I want to thank all of my followers and all of my visitors for such a wonderful experience here in Blogland - for all of the new friends I've made and all of the kind words of encouragement AND all of the inspiration I find here amongst you!  Last Saturday, August 3rd marked the second anniversary of my blog and wouldn't you know it, just now, at 8:00 on
 Wednesday August 7th I have hit
 visitors!  Woo-hoo!  Thank you all so very much!

Now, on to my latest two "simple" Christmas cards!  I've had some Christmas embossing folders for a while now and finally decided to use them.  The first one seemed to go perfectly with the SU "Tree Trimmings" set.  The ornament is simply embossed with detail gold, as is the gold layer border.
The second card uses the cardinal embossing folder with some glitter cardstock and rhinestones. 
So now I have 20 Christmas cards down and 40 more to go!  I'm feeling really good about that! 
Thanks for visiting! 


  1. These are gorgeous. Love the embossing folders you used and especially love that you made it the focal point in the second card.

  2. Two awesome cards, Gerlinde. I'm so jealous that you've got such a great start to your Christmas cards, I always say I need to start earlier, but unfortunately every year it seems to get later!! What a great idea to use the embossing folders though. TFS.

  3. Lovely, elegant Christmas cards, Gerlinde. It's always a pleasure seeing what you have up your sleeve transmitted through your talented fingers into beautiful masterpieces! hugs, de
