Christmas on the Farm

I have a couple more Christmas cards for you today...I have a healthy pile for Christmas already! These are ultra simple one layer (ie 'cheap to post'!) cards. I stamped straight on to some Papermania kraft card blanks, and coloured the images using watercolour pencils.


Here are close-ups of the individual cards:

Sentiment: Studio G (I masked and stamped it to make it look like they're singing 'Deck the Halls'...lol)

Sentiment: 'Holly-Jolly Christmas' set by Penny Black

Fabulous cards Helen! I really needs to get my finger out and make some more Christmas cards. Simpler ones would definitely be good!

I love the Kraft card too.
