Bella's decorating the tree

I've had this Bella stamp for months, stamped and swapped some of the images but until now have not personally got around to using it, so I made 2 cards with it!! Although not very clear from the picture the red is embossed using my swiss dots folder and I have used the snow writer on the white of the boots and hat, they do sparkle in 'real' life! I can't decide if this needs anything in the top left corner or not, what do you think? this next card is very basic, just a panel of christmas paper from last year, I have mounted the image on a piece of blue card which has also been embossed with the swiss dots folder, there is a border of raised dots all around the edge, and finished with a organza bow and some sticky gems.
I am going to enter them for the current 'bright and bold' challenge over at My Time to Craft, so take your pick ladies!

Although I've not had much enthusiasm to make cards the past couple of days, I have made another today, this one is a bit of fun, I looked through the decoupage sheets I have got saved in my files and came accross this cute dog with backing paper, so made another pyramid! I was going to stick him in the middle but decided he looked cute standing at the base of the card to one side, I added the greeting to kind of look like an equivelant to the star at the top of the christmas tree, if that makes sense. I am going to enter this as my Cute Card Thursdays as this weeks challenge is 'cats and dogs'.
