Cool Blues for Christmas

Back in September I won some scrapbooking paper on Friday Sketchers, and after a long wait it finally arrived from a Norwegian company called 3ndypapir. All I can say is it was worth the wait! The paper is gorgeous and really good quality, double-sided and very thick too! So I just had to use one of the winter designs to make a little card (it was a shame to cut it, it's so nice) for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The challenge was a bit tricky for me as you can only use a Penny Black sentiment, and I don't have many (I have 2 to be precise)! So I went for a Christmas theme...

I used:
- Sentiment from Penny Black Holly Day Critters clear set
- Paper from
- Ribbon, snowflakes, gems from stash

The second blue card I made is for Cute Card Thursday, where the brief is Angels and Fairies. I didn't want to do a Tilda card, I thought a change was in order so I dug deep and found some See D's Christmas stamps to do this card. It's been a while since I used these stamps...

I used:
- See D's Magical Christmas Set (for the background, angel and sentiment)
- Angel Hair (you can just see behind the background)
- Glitter glue on angel
- Rest from stash

I've put ribbon on both cards, I was in a ribbon and blues mood last night!
