Christmas Pressies :-)!

I want to share my three card pressies received from cardmaking buddies and my Mom for Christmas!  My Mom is a wonder...she made homemade cards for each of her fellow BINGO players, in addition to all her relatives and other friends!  I LOVE to receive homemade glad a few of us share our cards with each other!

My first homemade card received was from my friend Sandy...aren't those little elf stocking legs and shoes just the cutest!  I LOVE them!  Sandy always find such cute embellies when we go on cardmaking shopping trips, and I get to enjoy her finds on my cards fom her.  Thanks Sandy for the darling card!

Next came my friend Charlene's card.  I have to tell you, I was so glad to receive this card with my favorite stamp/die bundle from Stampin' Up.  I had plans to use this set for my four children's Christmas cards and having one made up right in front of me, helped gave me courage to cute into the beautiful pieces ofChristmas patterns I had chosen for each of their cards...LOL!    I made my cards larger than any I had seen on Pinterest or Charlene's card, so I had to create my own dimensions, but it helped to have the smaller version in front of me.  Thanks those reindeer!  I am showing two views Charlene's card so you can see what it looks like when closed and then, open.

My last homemade card received was from my Mom, traveling all the way from northern California.  I love this snowflake stamp set that she used on the front, and also her inside stamped verse.  I'll have to figure out which stamp set it comes from.  So very pretty...LOVE it Mom!
