Snowy cards...

I made these two cards to be similar but different to help boost my Christmas card making efforts as this is usually quicker. I have had the paper and brads for ages and have promised myself that I will start using up some of my old stuff! Both images are Bugaboo and I sized them so they would fit the same mats. I made the sentiments myself.

This one uses this cute snowman and his friend the bird so I thought it would make a good friendship card. The white pearl card was run through the snowflake embossing folder.

This cheeky little snowball man has been coloured with promarkers and glittered. This time I used the ice crystal embossing folder.

I would like to enter the cards for:

Hi Alison

I am finally back in blogland .. .. hurray!!!

Everyone has been so busy and lots to see and catch up on.

I love your Christmas cards. I do the same and try to make a few on a similar theme all at once. If I am being really good I do 6 .. it takes up a chunk of time but you have a nice little pile at the end.

Love your snowman with the brush!!

Hope you have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
