Give Thanks to a Veteran today!

They gave their all so that we could have our 'all'.

I am continuing on my journey of making Christmas cards.  Seems like every time I make some, they disappear into someone else's stash at work!  LOL   At this rate I am going to have to buy the ones that I send out!

Today I worked with a couple of new releases from Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs. 
This first image is called 'Holiday Candles'.  It is a very classic image for Christmas.  I think it makes a very elegant card.

Image:  Holiday Candles from Fresh Brewed Designs
Coloring:  Copic Markers
DP:  DCWV photo stack
Ribbon:  SU (new ribbon in the just released holiday book)
Flourish:  My Favorite Things die cut with glitter paper

My second card was using the FBD image 'Wonky Tree' as a background element.
