Christmas "leftovers" - yummy!

Hi everyone,

I wont blame you if you have given up on me.  Things have been rather chaotic of late around here.  So with that said I am so pleased that I have managed to do these two cards for a challenge & guess what I even managed to do it before the deadline - woot woot! :) (can you tell I haven't had a lot of sleep).  Here are my cards.
Both of these cards are made up of leftover papers & rubbons & one lonely bit of red/black ribbon.  I added some extra interest to the penguin card by stamping on the c/s with distress inks & two different HA stamps (which due to my lack of camera skills you can't see).  The red oval I was originally going to throw out because I thought I couldn't use it for anything.  The Pointsetta card is all scraps & I added interest to the bottom of the card by running it through my trusty cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot folder after applying the rubbon. 

Thanks for stopping by & Have a great week & happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxo
