On the first day of Christmas...

I didn't have to work this morning (woo-hoo!), and the atrocious weather put me off going out and about, so I put my free time to good use, and made up these cards with some images I coloured last night. I was given this stamp set (Penny Black ' Twelve Days of Christmas') for my birthday a few months ago, and haven't really used them much yet. They're not your traditional Christmas images, so I've combined them with funky 'non-Christmassy' colours.





I think all the papers I've used are by DCWV - from various Christmas stacks. Ive used both the 'Swiss Dots' and 'Snowflakes' embossing folders, and all the circles were cut using my trusty Nesties.

I haven't really seen these images before, aren't they great? I love how you decided to go with the non-trad colours too, brilliant! xx
