Two more Christmas cards

We haven't had much snow today but it is still very cold. Having seen the pics on the news some of you have it really bad so keep warm and safe.

Those Christmas cards are still coming and here are 2 more today. I am so pleased with the way this card turned out. In fact I'd like to keep it for myself. The adorable image is Sugar Nellie of course. She was a Birthday pressy from Lynsey along with the lovely Nesties which remind me of ornaments and she fitted into the largest die perfectly. The papers are last years Rose Tinted Christmas from DCWV. I added some black raffia lace, Primas and Wild Orchid roses with punched leaves. I used the fab sketch at The Sugar Bowl where they also have the option of black, white plus one. As the stamp and die cut are new and the paper is old it fits the challenge at Passion for Promarkers of old and new. Craft Your Days Away are looking for texture so this card fits the challenge there as well.

Crafts 4 Eternity always have great sketches with an added theme which this week is stars. It's the first time I have used this image from Rachelle Anne Miller this Christmas. It's such a fun image to colour (with Promarkers of course), a bit of glitter and glossy accents for the ice. Papers are Papermania Winter's Tale with a couple of other scraps added. I used the MS simple scallops border punch for a change. I haven't used the Let it Snow Sizzix die much this year so out that came today with Sizzix and Marianne die cut snowflakes, a snowflake brad and some new star pins I bought at the NEC. I am also entering this into the challenge of I is for Ice and Snow at ABC and Stars at Paperplay.
I'm off to sell at the Christmas Bazaar at my local council office tomorrow lunchtime so hope that goes well.
