Christmas cards

I'm not on the team for this week's challenge at The Colour Crazy Challenge,
but when I found out that our sponsor was Knitty Kitty Designs, I knew I had to join in!
I was delighted to spot the image : Christmas Catflap.

I made 2 cards with this image: one for my Mum and Dad and one for my Hubby.
First up, is my Mum n Dad's card...

Believe it or not, the "snowy" backing paper is wrapping paper!
I couldn't find just what I needed in my stash, then my eyes fell on my wrapping paper rolls
and I found the perfect thing!
I fussy-cut the bunting - from a sheet of docrafts paper I have had for yonks.
The super-cute image was coloured with my alcohol markers, 
and touches of nuvo glitter and glossy accents
were added, here n there. 
I added a "6" on top of the door, for my Mum n Dad's house number and
a little bit of pavement in front of the house, so I could add the stamped sentiment.

Now for my Hubbys card...

Made in much the same way as the other card, I added a stamped and coloured
 (and glittered!) mistletoe branch above the door and a banner along the bottom. 
I added some extra lines on the door, to make it look a bit more
 like our own front door.

Dr Digi is the sponsor this time, over at the Colour Crazy challenge 
(and our theme is anything goes, as usual).
I got this fab image called "Pint glass" 
which I found perfect for a card for my Brother-in-law. 

The backing paper comes from a pack I bought in a Pound shop (I think!) and
I dry embossed a line around the edges of this paper. 
I stamped the "birthday" part of the sentiment and hand-wrote
the "happy " and "brother" parts.
(I made the LUKE label on the pc. )
The spotty paper comes from a DCWV pack.
I loved colouring this digi image with my alcohol pens...
 it was quite quick and easy.

Gift time. (50)

At Patties Creations this month, Pattie has decided to have an "anything goes" challenge - 
so you've no excuse mot to join in! 
I used her image "gift time" to make a card for a man.

The image: a stack of presents, was lovely to colour. 
I added a die-cut frame (on 3d foam), stars and balloon-numbers. 
I got the sentiments for free from Desert Divas.
Embossing and inking the edge of the grey spotty card finished this card off.

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