Some Christmas and Some Scalloped Cards

The other night I couldn't sleep, so rather than toss and turn and drive my husband mad, I started my Christmas Card stash. For my first one, I dug out my old favourite "Holiday Line Up". As I had zero mojo, I scoured SCS and found this card which I loved, and so, this card was born:
Holiday line up, many merry messages, swiss dots embossing folder, spiral punch, snowflake punch, soft suede, rhred, basic black, river rock & white.
And I have nearly a whole reel of this fabulous ribbon, but never, ever use it, so with that in mind, I came up with this card:
Seasons of joy, top note die, RHR stripped grosgrain ribbon RHR & Vanilla
And to carry on with my obsession with all things scalloped, I made this little number:
Occasional greetings, scallop die, scallop circle punch, silver ep/heat tool, swiss dots embossing folder, circle cutters, holiday harmony dsp, silver cord, aluminium foil, old olive cs.
And this one:
A kind word, baroque motifs, occasional greetings, scalloped die, square scallop punch, choc chip taffeta ribbon, , twine, cropodile, circle cutters, blender pens & ink, sponge daubers, choc chip, pirouette pink, very vanilla
And this one:
I have made one like this a while a go, but this time I jazzed it up a little bit more, and I liked it heaps better! The glitter looks a bit rubbish in the photo but IRL, it was sparkle city!
Pony Party, scallop oval punch, scallop die, swiss dots embossing die, spritzer, blender pens & ink, white taffeta ribbon, purple rhinestone brad, sponged daubers, dazzling diamonds glitter & a mixture of almost amethyst, lovely lavender, pale plum and elegant eggplant.

Again, it is 11.53 and I am still in my jammies, this has been the best weekend!

Step away from the scallop circle. Lol. These are great Leo. But your challenge for toda is not to use the scallop circle. Can you do it.
