Feeling Festive

During my marathon crafting session today I made a few more Christmas cards...I need to build up my stocks again after donating a load to Emma for the Support Our Soldiers card appeal. I've kept them really simple (and also flat for posting!).

This stamp ('Snowy' by Penny Black) is rapidly becoming one of my favourites - I think it may be featuring on rather a lot of my cards this year!. The gorgeous paper is by DCWV from the 'Rose Tinted Christmas' stack, and the sentiment stamp (also by Penny Black) is embossed in purple.

I've used (yet) another Penny Black stamp ('Deer in Skates') and more of the 'Rose Tinted Christmas' papers by DCWV.

Same layout and papers again, but this time the stamp is by Hero Arts ('Winter Pup') - I love his little hat and scarf!

Yes, it's 'Snowy' again! This time in pink, with more of the 'Rose Tinted Christmas paper. The sentiment is by Studio G - I think I paid 75p for the set last year!

I made a few more birthday cards today too, but I can't put them on here just yet...
