Two more Trimming Cards for Hero Arts Challenge

I had just enough time to throw together 2 more cards out the scraps, trimmings and stamps on my workbench.
I found another oldie but goodie Hero Arts Christmas stamp from 1991. This is the Merry Christmas with Lights Garland D124. I've always loved to color in the lights and letters.

This next card is based on the Thank You card I made awhile back with black and white ribbon. Here I used poinsettias from the HA clear set Decorate Your Own stamped in Fired Brick Distress ink to bring in the color, along with the felt poinsettia.

Thought for the Day: In preparing my heart to celebrate Christmas, I like to start at the beginning, with God and His love for the people He created in His image. We were separated from God by our sin but His plan was to redeem us through Jesus Christ, His Son.
1 John 4:9-10 God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son into the World so that we might have eternal life through Him.  This is real love- not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
Blessings to You!
