Yet more Christmas cards!

I'm dashing into blogland with more Christmas cards. I have managed to make quite a few cards this weekend and a few even tie in to some challenges too!
First up I have snowflakes (and owls) for the challenge at Allsorts this week.
The stamp is from Little Claire's and it is coloured with promarkers and stickles. The snowflake paper was a freebie from 'Quick cards made easy', I think. I used a spellbinders die and a craftwork cards sentiment to finish it off.
My next is very similar, just a different colour way and papers were from a 12 x12 pack I bought (possibly dovecraft?) that I don't know if I will ever see the end of!!! Poinsettia die is from Marianne designs and the leaves are a Britannia Die from Pink Frog which I bought at Doncaster. These are both stamped last-minute Christmas cards that will be stuck in envelopes and posted as soon as the glue is dry! I am entering them into the challenge at Sweet Stampin'
Next I have another Nicecrane Robin from the Christmas birds sheet. I've added some glitter, some snippets of DP and some snippets of pearlescent card. Again the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. I think the Holly DP is from an Artylicious cd from Chocolate baroque, but this is a bit left over from last year.
All three of my cards are using up snippets so I'm taking them to Miss Di's snippet playground, where someone got a bit excited with the chestnut roasting and set fire to the bike shed! Off to see if I can help sort it out. Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally, Been a while since I got a chance to pop by for a visit, and how enjoyable a few minutes it was today. Loved your 2 so-different Owl cards. Your colors & decorations really changed the look for each of them. Then I see this lovely robin card and I'm blown away. Such a marvelous image, and loved the layout & papers you used to make Mr. R so very beautiful. Merry Christmas, TFS & Hugs

How different those two owl cards are! My favourite just has to be that robin though - the deep purples are amazing as a backdrop for the image - he positively glows.

Morning Sally . . . love all 3 cards. Isn't it amazing how different the 2 owl cards look with different colouring?

I've swept up the bike shed debris . . . thinking we might have to have one of those curved plastic ones for the bikes now . . . but HOW can you hide behind them? That's a serious design flaw!

Your little owls are soooo sweet. They look so different in the change of colour. I like the effect of the snow with the Robin. Hugs Mrs A.
