A few Christmas Cards

Well, I've only been home for half an hour, as it is Panto Week at school (Oh yes it is!). We just have two matinees to go now, so the late nights are over. I made a few Christmas cards at the weekend, but just haven't got round to posting them until now. These are all using stamps from Little Claires, which I bought or had bought for me (Thank you, Lynne!) at Doncaster.
The first two feature the Christmas Owl tree (so cute!) and some rather old Dovecraft papers. I added a ribbon and a sentiment from Craftwork Cards. The image is coloured with promarkers, which I tried to match to the papers. The first one here is for Crafty Cardmaker's challenge where I used the photo inspiration (Tree and colours).
For the next two cards I used Robin Redbreast and more old papers! I coloured again with promarkers, and then went a bit mad with stickles!

The border on these two is a tonic punch.

Thanks for looking!
 I hope to catch up with you very soon x

Gorgeous set of cards, Sally! The red owls look particularly festive. I still have a few of those Dovecraft papers floating around somewhere! The robins are so sweet - I'm beginning to wish I'd got that stamp too! Nearly finished all my cards now though, so maybe next year... x

These are beautiful - lovely images, but I've got to say that my favourite is the owl tree - it's fabulous!

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers.

These are fabulous Sally, all of them. I love the way you've coloured the owl tree to co-ordinate perfectly with your background papers (which I have in my stash somewhere too, lol) and the robin image is beautifully coloured too. Just the right amount of sparkle imo
