Two Quickie Forever Friends Christmas Cards

Aw, you thought Christmas was over, didn't you and if you didn't know me better you'd think I was getting ready for next Christmas! No...I just mislaid these two.
I did both these cards very quickly, you can tell can't you, don't answer that! I'd already sliced the top half off the red backing paper for another card, so then had the bottom bit left with the Forever Friends 'Rudolph' Bear. Can't really do very much with it, other than make a narrower card. So I sliced about an inch off a 5x5 card, added gems, red glitter elasticated Christmasy cord, a strip of the red backing paper with red dots and some punched out fern leaves. I did stamp Merry Christmas, but smudged it so did it again and covered it up.
The inside font is a freebie, it's called Freehand591 I've linked it before, but if you missed it you can download it here
The next card, well... I was playing with my new Forever Friends stamps. Used a bit of Liquid Appligue and glitter for the 'snow' and micro glitter on the bear's scarf. Coloured with Promakers of course. There doesn't seem to be enough 'bling' on them so I'll probably re-vamp them before next Christmas! (What's the betting I'll forget where I put them!)
