A couple of festive cards for you.....

....this evening I will be spending my time making Christmas cards...I already know I need to make rather a lot of little Rudolphs so I need to get my skates on! Before I start though I wanted to share a couple of cards with you.

First off I have my card for this month's Sir Stampalot challenge and for this month's Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge...both have a similar theme....

Can you guess the theme?

Penny Black at Allsorts - its beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Sir Stampalot - Christmas traditions

I thought this fab Penny Black stamp would be brilliant for both always makes me laugh....can you just imagine santa bringing all his presents riding on a cow!? I've used bright red and green backing papers, and a super cute Papermania backing paper featuring lots of Christmas pressies.

My second card is for the Allsorts challenge this week, where their theme is gold and cream with a hint of red:

Now, although I didn't use a Christmas sentiment on this card, I think it would be perfect for Christmas or a Birthday or a "just because" card. I love this Kanban stamp and have used it a lot already - it seems to appeal to everyone. I've used a combination of cream and gold backing papers, along with some cream ribbon. I stamped the tree in black ink and then added some gold and red glitter glue. Finally the sentiment is gold.

Right...I actually started writing this post about an hour and a half ago...this proves just how easy it is to distract me! Since I started the post I've eaten dinner, called my boyfriend and made some yummy raspberry cupcakes that are currently in the oven!

I'm off to make my Rudolphs now before I get distracted again....although those cakes will need icing at some point! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you again soon.

Hi Wedgie

Two lovely cards.

Love your Penny Black image .. .. not one I have seen used very often.

Your backing paper goes with the image really well .. .. can't imagine Santa getting many deliveries done using a cow for transport though LOL!!

Love your tree card too!!
