CHNC challenge extra for September

Can you believe that it's now September? Where is the year going to? I'm glad that I've been making Christmas cards throughout the year, but I'm very conscious that time is becoming even more precious and ticking by fast. As many of you know, I sell cards to raise money for Tearfund and will be having an 'at home' day at the beginning of October ... and that's not far away now!

I usually make some packs of cards that I sell quite cheaply - five simple cards in a pack. So I thought I would make five using the lovely 'raggedy angel - lay on star' kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, the sponsor of CHNC challenge extra for September. Please click on the challenge link and join in - it's always 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas' - I'd love to see your Christmas creations there.

The card blanks are some landscape opening ones that are kraft card with a bit of a golden sheen to them. The gold foiled card with star patterns is some that I've had for longer than I can remember. The lovely sentiment was an internet freebie (I changed the colour digitally).
