2 Girly Christmas Cards

Gee what am i like - the hotest day of the year so far and i'm uploading Christmas Cards !!! and not watching England play in the football - doesn't interest me, i'd much rather watch rugby or F1.

I've made 2 Christmas Cards and they are both girly !!!

The first one (a tent card) and the challenges i'm entering are :

ABC Christmas Challenge - where they are up to 'M for Mistletoe' and faux stitching

Papers - K & Company - 'Swell Noel'
Sentiment - Cuddly Buddly
Faux Stitching - Done with Sakura Souffle pen

The second one and the Challenges i'm entering are :

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Strawberries and Cream' - I must admit when i saw this, i did panic then i remembered the gorgeous Doodlebug papers !!!

Crafty Creations  - where Challenge No: 73 is 'We Want To See You Shine' - I first Versamarked the image, then put clear embossing powder over it and heated it for extra sparkle

The Secret Crafter - where Challenge No: 89  is 'Strawberries and Cream' (Sorry forgot to add this earlier)
