Time for Christmas again

Being April, this is the fourth Christmas club challenge on BF forum and for this Janice has supplied us with this super sketch:

My aim is to make 10 cards for the BF Christmas Club every month, so here goes with my April offerings (I didn't make them all today - just one of them and added finishing touches to others.

I had to resort to scans because a lot of the cards were reflecting too much with the flash, but you can get the general idea.

Supplies are a mixture of Kanban, Craft Creations, DCWV, PM papers and various embellishments, including DCWV and Dovecraft.

These cards are also for:

Crafty angels 30: 'my favourite things' - making Christmas cards! and Tellen's place 12: 'it's all about you'.
Practical scrappers challenge this week: 'glitter and/or bling -quite a few of the cards have reflective mirror card and/or glitter
ABC Christmas 'G is for glitz, with the optional extra of silver' - particularly the silver mirror card with layered glittered poinsettia
Alphabet: 'X is for Xmas'
The cards with snowmen and teddies are for Simon says: 'a card for a child'.

This card is also for Cupcake 86: 'childhood memories' (carol singing); also the next three cards are for Fab's big Christmas week 14: 'brads' - the big brads are either Dovecraft or DCWV - I can't remember which. They are also for Creative card crew 47: 'vintage' (there's no 'aging' to the card, but the images are vintage). Susie & Vikki's Christmas club 8 called for 'presents & gifts', which are here:

This one is also for Loonie 87: 'black, white, turquoise':

And the next two are for Fab's big Christmas week 13: 'tone on tone' and also Cute card Thursday 107: 'mono mania':

This one is also for Crazy challenge: 'don't call me flat' - the poinsettia is built up with four layers. Unfortunately, the scan doesn't show the reflective nature of the silver mirror card - and I tried to take a photo, but got myself and the camera reflected!

This last card is also for treehouse 44 colour challenge: yellow, lavender and a neutral:
