Red, Green, Gold ..... and blue * 2

Well I sat down last night to do a few last minute Christmas cards, and managed 3 - which is about as good as it ever gets for me in the course of an evening's crafting. Nearly there now though ... just a couple of special ones to do next week.

Blue always tends to feature quite heavily in my Christmas cards, so I would like to enter the first two cards last minute for this week's One Stop Craft Challenge #7, which is ... something blue ! LOL!!

My third card falls in reasonably nicely with the theme of this week's Stamp Something Challenge, which is red, gold and green.

I used:

Card 1: main image is Penny Black "Let It Snow", coloured with watercolour pencils and Cosmic Shimmers, and decorated with white pee wee glitter and Glossy Accents on the puddle; sentiment is by Make Your Mark; background papers are by Craft Creations; white snowflake felt ribbon & 3-dimensional blue/silver snowflakes are by Papermania; sparkly button is by Doodlebug.

Card 2: main image as per card 1; background papers from Forever Friends "Christmas Snow" pack; ribbon from Hobbycraft; snowflakes diecut with Cuttlebug and decorated wtih Papermania gemstones; peeloff greeting from my stash.
card 3: main image is my new Sugar Nellie, watercoloured; papers are by Imagnisce (red) and My Mind's Eye (trees); ribbon is from Sir Stampalot; flowers from Prima Christmas bubble; sticker free with a craft mag.

Hope you like them :-)
