More for Christmas

I know, it's only September but it's always good to be prepared and Christmas does have a habit of creeping up on you!

I started making these cards to post yesterday but half way through the first one, one of our dogs decided to escape from the bottom of the garden!  He's a big blue German Shepherd who loves people and is very friendly but there are lots of more elderly people near to where I live and coming across a huge blue German Shepherd is not something I would like to contemplate so the day ended up as one big massive dog hunt which only ended at 4pm when we realised he was stuck in a neighbours hen house in the woods behind our house.  Thankfully he hadn't eaten any of the chickens but he was very hot, thirsty and very very smelly.  He hasn't left my side today!

Anyway onto the cards.  I really enjoy embossing, there's something almost magical about the way it turns from being a mat powder into something shiny and bright.

I decided to keep the cards the same layout and just change the baubles. I loved the embossed ones but I'm not sure about the stamp n' glitter one in the green.  It didn't show enough detail for my liking but boy does it sparkle so it gets to be shown!

They are very quick cards to make especially as the border on the right hand side is made using a wheel.

Let me know what you think, I love to read your comments.

Have a great day
