A few more Christmas cards finished

I've not ventured into my craft room much recently, I've been so cold that I've remained firmly huddled in front of the fire.  But, today I've been determind so wrapped a blanket around my lap and beavered away to complete a few more cards.  Here they are:

I used Paula Pasqual and HOTP snowflake stamps for the background and an old Happy Christmas stamp (not sure who makes this) for the sentiment which has been layered using a mixture of Nesties and scalloped squares cut on my Silhouette and a bit of ribbon to finish.

The next two were inspired by Sarita:

I used my Paula Pascual stamp set and stamped in black and gold for the card above and black and silver for this one:

And finally, this card is probably committing a cardinal sin for dedicated stampers, but I used a CD to print off the image.  It's from the Joanna Sheen Enchanted Christmas collection and I do love all the vintage images featured on the CD - I have this romantic vision of how wonderful to have lived back in Victorian times with horse drawn carriages, living by candlelight and no noise from aeroplanes, cars and trains (I am very noise intollerant).  A slower pace of life appeals to me, although life was probably pretty miserable and hard for most people back then, so I think I'd rather stick to the 21st century and my central heating.  Perhaps a set of ear plugs would also be useful.

I love this pyramage image, I think she's sooo beautiful.  The wording was done on the computer and I added some gold embossing along the edge and a bit of ribbon.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and I hope the snow is beginning to disappear where you are - It's becoming a bit of a drag now! X
