Some quick christmas cards!

Afternoon all. Thought I would share a couple of quick make christmas cards that I have made this week. I am behind with my christmas cards and with only 47 days left until christmas I wanted to start making a few quick cards for work colleagues etc. I am determined not to give any shop bought cards! I have to confess that last year I left my christmas cards a little too late and had to give a few shop bought cards to some friends and distant realtives. I know shock horror! But it won't be happening this year!

The image is Nellie with crochet hat and scarf, from the Sugar Nellie range available at Funky Kits. I coloured her in with my whispers pens before cutting her out and using 3D foam to attatch her to the card. Half of the base CS has been embossed with the swiss dots folder. Papers are from dovecraft and DCWV. Ribbons are from Dovecraft. Acrylic flowers are from American crafts and have been embellished with snowflakes (x cut punch) and pearl gems. Red greeting is a rub on also from American crafts and the stampd sentiment is from a see D's christmas set.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. It's lovely weather here in west yorkshire today and the sun is shining. I've still got the heating on though, much to my boyfriends disgust! Lol! :-)

Hugs, Vicky x

Hi Vivky, these are gorgeous, she is just soo cute. I had intended getting some Christmas cards done today also. I need to get all mine done prior to 12th Dec as I am then heading off on holiday with my sister to Dubai for a week. I have also taken on a commission for a local flower shop today for a dozen Christmas cards so looks like I will be busy over the next wee while.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Vicky - thanks for visiting and for leaving such a lovely comment...

You have made some amazing cards....love your style...the Elzybells card is gorgeous and your RAM image for PTW....I love the others too, but thought these were stunning!

Eeeek re your christmas card comment - you're being so good....most people I know will get shop bought ones (shock horror)...Why? Because I love design and always fall in love with the gorgeous designs that John Lewis bring out normally....I can't walk by...and I always have to keep one or two just to look at....did you know I was mad?? hee...Enjoy the rest of the weekend...x

Hi Vicky,
These cards are fab and have made me think that I need to pull a few quicky cards out of the bag if I'm to make enough in time for Christmas. I sat there nodding my head at what you wrote, I also had to buy some last year and I'm also refusing to be in that position this year, lol! xx
