Christmas Cards - 20 card Marathon Part 1

Hello There

How are we all?  Have we had a good Christmas then and was Santa kind to you all?

I had a real break from computers over Christmas and neither posted or visited so sorry if I missed you.  I am now back in the office and back to reality so I shall visit you all later and over the coming few days.  I promised you all I would share some of the Christmas cards I made whilst on my marathon session at my friend's so here they are.....

Using my new AO stamps.  Love these.  And of course some VOS in the ribbon and paper.  The paper is also a very old snippet and now all gone.
Another similar style using some of the recycled paper from the album I made a while ago and some Snippet snowflakes cut with Spellbinders die.
This card I cased from my mate Bonnie.  I made it in several colours and just love it.  That braid you can see I have used is Very VOS!  Not used it much until now.
And here is the last of today's showing.  Made using the parts from the album.  

I am just going to pop these over to the Snippets Playground and see what mischief has been going on over there now and see if I can help with the missing fence.  I do hope the weather wasn't too horrendous for you over the Christmas.  I know some poor peeps have missed the celebrations due to no electricity or flooding.  

TTFN

All are gorgeous! Next year I'll take a break from blogging over Christmas and New Year. However it could be me fed up because of an infection I can't seem to get rid of lol! They are all real beauties and don't worry about blogging comments - we are all here and not going anywhere! I hope work isn't too dull for you xx

Ooh, fab use of that Midwinter deer - he looks magnificent... Great cards, and I especially love that last one - what a brilliant use of the album leftovers!

Hope you're still enjoying your 12 Days of Christmas time (in between office hours), and wishing you a wonderful 2014!
