Christmas cards

Xmas cards for friends of mine who are gonna be celebrating Christmas at the end of the year.
 Just so you know that i wsnt totally laying around idle here they are.
 the first one i made i just felt i had to use these two newish cuties from the most recent kit, which came with the sentiment too
 And i just love the white on white feel, however i wanted my images to pop!

 For this card i having been leaning toward the kraft paper now for a while and i just love the way some of the crafters make the shabby chic cards look so easy even when i find it so challenging.
 the Tree i made using a Marianne die, which i just cut four times and glued together so i would have a 3d tree to decorate.  This card was made for a specific friend who told me in no uncertain terms, she didnt want a snowy card for Xmas since its hot as Hades in SA at this time of year
the little lights on the tree were sent to me by my BFF sometime ago when i expressed an interest in them and couldnt find any in SA.  I have been so frugal with them in the hope that i dont run out of the little lights i think they great for this kinda card.  I used glittering Tilda and another of the images from the new stamp kit that i dont have a name for right now.
hope you enjoyed seeing what i have been up to
