Just a couple of Christmas cards

Apart from the twinchies I showed on Sunday I'd done very little crafting in the last week until yesterday afternoon/evening, when I managed to make 32 cards. I took a break from blog challenges because it would have taken far too long to photo, blog etc.

However, I'm sharing just a couple of the cards I made.

The first one features choirboys around the tree, which has been recycled from a card received a couple of years ago, die cut with a nestability, as was the surrounding white glittered card. The greeting has green glittering and the tree is also glittered - difficult to see here.

The next card has a background of handmade red paper with silver stars and stitching. The central image was cut from an old Christmas card - you can just about see that the bottom of the image is glittered.

These are for:

Sparkle creations 41: 'Christmas trees' (first card)
Aly's 25: 'sparkle & glitter' (both cards)
Fab n funky 39: 'what'eva' (both cards)
Paper romance 15: 'clean & simple' (both cards)
Alphabet: 'T for trees' (both cards)
The treehouse 66: 'recycle' (both cards have recycled elements)
Fussy & fancy 19: 'Christmas colours' (both cards)
Stampin' sisters in Christ 56: 'stitching' (second card)
Creative craft: 'black and white plus 1' (second card)
Pixie dust studio 39: 'in between the newsprint - black/white and one other colour' (second card)
