Catching up

I'm so behind with my Christmas cards this year; usually by this time of the month they are finished and the ones that need to go overseas are already in the mail. Oh my......

I made five cards today but the light is now so bad that I'll have to wait til tomorrow to take the other photos. Here are two Tildas that I made using the Basic Grey Jovial  design paper. The Tilda with Hood has been coloured using Copic markers and the Tilda with fir tree was coloured in with watercolour pencils. I need to buy some more Copics.......
The sentiments are from Lili of the Valley and the poinsettia stamp is from Magnolia, as are the Tilda's. The deep border punches are Martha Stewart (garden trellis on the top card and vintage doily on the bottom one). I also used glossy accents on the coat buttons to lend an extra "shine".

I'll post the other cards tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think as I love to read your comments.
