CHNC challenge 157: starting all over again?

I wonder if you were in a bit of a panic towards the end of the year, realising that you needed to get on and quickly make Christmas cards? Why not make the resolution this coming year to make Christmas cards throughout the year to ease the panic later on. I'd love you to join in my Christmas challenge blogs - CHNC challenge 157 starts today (click on the link to find out about it) and there is still the December challenge on CHNC challenge extra blog - and the January challenge will obviously be going up soon - this is always  'anything goes' as long as it's Christmas.

Back to today's CHNC challenge 157 - this week I'd like to see any Christmas cards that you've made at the last minute or made earlier, but didn't have a chance to blog - or new cards that you have made to get ahead for next Christmas - it is never too early!!

Here are two cards that I made almost at the last minute using various elements from Hunkydory kits:
