Christmas cards!

Goood afternoon- it's  horrible, cold and damp here today- not what we expect at the end of May! I've given in and put the heating on for a while, Marvin is ecstatic! He's back from his second walk of the day and is sleeping blissfully by my feet, enjoying the warmth!
I'm woefully behind with my Christmas makes this year so thought I'd make a card to enter into some challenges and ended up making two- same design, dies and stamp, just swapped the colours around and altered the arrangement a bit :)

the dies are all TH apart from the circle which is Tonic Studios, these were quick to put together once I'd finished cutting with the dies.

Thanks for visiting

Hi Chris,
Happy Rudolf Days.
I love these wonderful creations they look so brilliant in the Kraft and white.
Fab idea to change around the colours too.
Love that wonderful die used and your embossing folders used are gorgeous.
Yes very cold the last few days no chance of putting on my heating as they are storage heaters and take 24 hours to warm up by then it might of warmed up.
So it's jumper time again.
Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. DT

Gorgeous cards Chris, love the non fussy design and colours..fabulous dies too, I need to ask a puppy daughter has puppies, 6 of them, and they cry all night, most of the day, the Mother feeds them but they still cry as soon as she goes, and she goes a lot, they putting on weight but keep the whole house awake at night, can you think what the problem could be?

Oh they are very elegant, Chris! I love the dies and your colour combos are fab!

Been wet, windy and chilly here too! Though we haven't had to resort to putting the heating back on yet - just added some more layers of clothing and put fluffy throws back on beds!
