First 5 pack Of Christmas Cards for 2012

Good morning!
Well I am back feeling very refreshed and ready to get on with crafting for my market after a fantastic weekend visiting very good friends in Holland! It was such a brilliant weekend, and I finally got chance to go inside a real, old fashioned, working windmill...something I have wanted to do for a long time!

Anyway, after dropping Keiran at school this morning, I came back and got straight into the craft room! Christmas cards were on the agenda this morning, and here is what I have made...
I have used Papermania Joyeux Noel papers, Marianne dies and some scrap ribbon from inside the shoulder of a shirt. 

 I am trying to come up with some designs for packs of cards, and so here is one pack of 5.
I quite like the simplicity of the cards, and they didn't take too long to make, once everything was prepared, so I might make a few packs in different colours and papers. It's a great way to use up some of the tonnes of DP I have lying around too!!


Ok, I think I better get to work!
See you soon!
