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.
