Simple Christmas Cards!!

I was lucky enough to win the Merry Background stamp from Hero Arts and when it arrived I couldn't wait to ink it up.  I need to make quite a few more cards and this stamp lends itself to quick easy cards.  I love it matched with the gingham (my favourite red)ribbon.  I have made two cards so far one in Pool ink and one in Wet Cement.

There is a new challenge over at the "The Ribbon Girl Blog" and as the gingham ribbon is the focal point on my card I am adding these to the challenge.
 One of our flickr group members the lovely Barb is also running a little card challenge so I will add these to the group.

Here is another quick card I have made using the gorgeous Hero Arts Holly stamp.  I really must crack on now, I am so behind making my cards this year!!!
