3 Quick & Simple Christmas Cards

Hello all you lubbly jubbly people, how are you all? Guess what its friday woo hoo thank crunchie for that, I sooooooooo love weekends......but then dont we all. Altho they go too quick I reckon we should get a petition together to get a 3-day weekend.........what do ya think?

Anyhoos I have 3 simple & quick christmas to show you, I made all 3 using scraps of 12 x 12 christmas paper I had left from last christmas...........or was it the christmas before???
I think all the papers are a mixture of MME & Pink Paislee christmas.  I've added lace & stringy stuff from my stash.

The sentiment is from my Kaisercraft Turtle Dove christmas stamp set. I gave the holly & berries a light colouring with pencils & added some sparkles. I stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa.

On the MME set there was also a 12x12 sheet of pop out tags & things, this card is all MME.

I added some burlap under the Merry Christmas tag & pulled out some of the threads to give it a softer edge. With the threads I pulled out I added them to a button from the sheet & added a holly leaf as well.

This is my fave as its kinda vintage-y ;-)
I added lace & ribbon to this one & used my Kaisercraft stamp again. I have ran out of deep red card :0( so I had to colour this card with my copic, was not happy doing that as it slows things down when making cards & uses my ink lol. However at last minute its fine, I have ordered more A4 card today tho ;0)

Now these cards are not super flat but to me they are flat & its still gonna be soooooo much cheaper than posting a card of foofiness in a box ;0) The card blanks I got when I got my Ebosser as I knew they would be handy for quickie cards ;0) Also added spots of a pearl pen on each card, its an addiction that thing is lol.

Memento Rich Cocoa ink - MCH

Thank you for stopping by you all totally rock. I am slowly catching up with you all I will be round again to catch up with the rest of you tonight.

I have read half of it but then hubster brought me a new ebook the kindle fire hd (fantastic ebook) so I gave my kobo touch to Megan............of course all my books were on there, so I've still not brought it again.
