2 Christmas cards I forgot to post.

Here are 2 more Christmas cards which I forgot to share with you...

The first is a card which I made for my Husband -
We have lots of birds who visit our garden, and one of our favourites is the robin.

This is a "just ink-lined" image which I have.
I coloured it with my promarkers and fussy cut around the image.
I embossed the background with snowflakes 
and added a computer generated sentiment - with a
 few die-cut snowflakes here n there. 
The brown snowflake paper came from a dovecrafts pack.

This second card, I made for my Grandma...

The brown snowflake paper came from the same dovecrafts pack. 
The christingle image was again, from "Just ink-lined"
and coloured with my alcohol markers, 
 I also used the same snowflake embossing folder.
The sentiment was a peel off...I havent used them in years,
 but as I came across it,
 I thought it was really traditional and in a lovely font 
and my Grandma would like it.... 
She loved it!

A snow-covered lampost

Patties Creations is challenging us to make a card for 
"Winter / Christmas" this month,
so I used the image : snow covered lampost.

I coloured the image with my alcohol markers and fussy cut around it.
I added 2 little bird diecuts, on which I coloured 
 a little red breast - to become robins.
I added some holly / berry diecuts, stamped the sentiment and the final diecuts were
a church, some stars and a snowy skyline silhouette.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
