Some more cards ready for Christmas

 Hello again, I have been busy crafting but mainly for DT cards so haven't been able to share yet, I made these last night to add to my collection of cards for Christmas.
 I used the free candle Digi Stamps 4 Joy were giving away last month, I had printed four onto the sheet but only used one so far, in my efforts to use things up before moving on to new things I decided to use them last night.
 I coloured the images with my Promarkers and my Spectrum Noir pens. I added some glitter to the stars using my Stella Wink pen, I have the clear one and love the effect you get without any mess.
The papers came free in a magazine, it might has been last year or even the year before sorry not at all sure how long I've had them. I used my Marianne dies to cut the corners, the circle and the greeting.
Here are all three together one circle was a little bigger than the other hence the change in the placement of the sentiment. I was feeling quite pleased with the number of cards I had ready for Christmas but I've spoken to my Granny today and she needs some cards during the year as she can't get out and about very often to pick her own, so I will be trying to make enough to send her some Christmas cards to use as well. You might be seeing a few batches of card during the year from now on.

I am entering these cards in the following challenges:

Crafting By Design - Think warm thoughts
Cards Galore - Bling
Doodle Pantry - Any digi goes
Winter Wonderland - Digi Days
Creative Moments - Add some Sparkle
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Passion 4 Promarkers - Anything Goes

This is a great design for making batch cards! The 'free' digi is wonderful, so clear and pretty! I think your Granny will be really pleased with any cards you make for her to use.

Gorgeous cards and this was a fab image to use...in answer to your question...yes I have three maids, ME, MYSELF AND I.... hey lol I craft a lot to de stress and trust me there is a lot of that at the moment...more than one can handle...crafting helps. I do a bit of colouring when I am with my dad at the home and craft after our evening meal like now...so having no kids at home and the house doesn't get dirty or untidy it's the goodness of the maids that keeps it like that...oh apart from the gardens, aNNie does that...:)
