Christmas Cards

Well I did manage to get a lot of the ironing done yesterday but there is still a pile to do. However I gave myself a bit of time off to make a couple of Christmas cards. Went back to work today, which wasn't nice but I have reduced my hours to 30 worked over 5 days so am glad to be home. The first card was made using a Lli of the Valley die cut, which I coloured with Ms and added Angel Wings Shimmerz to her wings, appropriately enough. I used one of my lovely new MS punches on the strip of paper, aren't those stars fab. I also used my new Sizzix snowflake die to cut 2 snowflakes and fix together with a snowflake brad. Added 3 sparkly snowflakes and a sentiment. Challenges are Lili of the Valley Christmas card for a child and Cute Daisy May Fairy-nuff and ABC F is for Flying.

The second card is also for 3 challenges. The challenge at Penny Black is buttons and bows, Our Creative Corner provided the sketch and La La Land have a theme of Winter/Christmas.

All of the papers I used were free with magazines last year.
