Christmas gem baubles & Christmas Cheer

Hi Crafty mates  I've been having a play the last few evenings and have made a couple more christmas cards.  I try and get my close family cards made first if possible and then follow on with other family, friends and work colleagues.  This year for some reason I seem to be finding it a challenge to make cards for everyone, including work colleagues but I'll see how it goes....  I always take a look at Eileen's blog and couldn't believe the 3 cards that she has made, they're wonderful as usual, but coincidentally one of the cards I'm posting is a similar version to one of Eileen's posted last christmas using the woodware stamp set and gems. It was Eileen's offering that motivated me to also make a similar card.  I have listed the materials below the card.

My second posting is using the large Christmas cheer stamp that I absolutely love, it is so versatile according to which colours you use.  I will probably use this stamp a lot again this year.  Again the materials used are listed below the card.  Sorry about the quality of the photos I seem to have a shadow on the bauble card.
Thank you to all my crafty friends who have left such lovely comments on my blog, they are so appreciated.  Have a nice evening - Cheerio for now.  Dee xxx

  5. Gorgeous cards Dee, I especially love the 2nd. My base card for "icing on the cake" is Bazill Kraft but in most of my cards I use Tim Holtz ~ antique linen co-ordinates
    Hope this helps
