CHNC challenge 155: whatever is urgent to make

Can you believe that we are rapidly getting nearer and nearer to the Big Day?!?! If you haven't finished making your Christmas cards yet ... or perhaps, like us, you have lots of family and friends with birthdays around Christmas ... then, hopefully, my CHNC challenge 155 will spur you on to get everything finished. Please click on the link and join in - and, of course, anything you make for Christmas can also be linked for CHNC challenge extra for December.

So here is my first set of CAS cards, using LOTV art pad pictures mounted on to offcuts of green mirror card and on to some gold 7 x 5 card blanks (and still trying to use up the ancient peel off greetings):

These are also for:
