Some new cards

This is Oakley from Whiff Of Joy, I followed the sketch for the challenge this time using papers from a magazine freebie,I coloured him with my promarkers of course, I cut the shapes with my dies, used my punch, inked everything within an inch of it's life, added some ribbon and some glitter after all it is a Christmas card. I made the sentiment on the computer I don't know if you can see it on the picture but it says sending love across the miles.
This lovely reindeer and the trees in the background are from Whimsey Stamps, I coloured them with my promarkers, added some glitter, mounted it on to a card blank I cut using one of my bigger dies.

This is another Whiff of Joy stamp, I coloured him as usual, cut the shapes, used the punch, made a card blank, created the sentiment and added some glitter.
Now these are colours I wouldn't normally use but now I have I really like them, the papers are all from the Fairyopolis CD's, I paper pieced her clothes, coloured as usual, used my trimmer for the papers but cut the frame with my die. I used my distress inks to knock back the bright orange paper I've used, added some glitter and a butterfly in the corner.
I had a great two days making these cards and I know lots of you can make fabulous cards much quicker and better than me but I was just enjoying playing.
I'm entering the cards into a few challenges, thanks for popping by and as always any comments you are kind enough to leave are greatly appreciated.
Challenges:
Oh La La - use punches and dies
