Xmas cards

Beautiful day today - shame I was at work like most days....
Made some Christmas cards - yes some!...simple ones - but at least I have started - Have you?
1st card today is an image from an old fashioned postcard - these are easily obtained - as luck would have it though - most of my images are from original images as my dad is an avid collector of these items...
Love this image. 
 Just a close up - just added the odd bit of glitter here and there
And as always - embossed the envelope - used a star for this card.

Next card - same again used one of my dads images...
 Added the odd bit of glitter on the snow
 And embossed the envelope
And the last image - my fave
 glittered again....perfect xmas image in my opinion
And embossed the envelope...

And because I was feeling sooooooo xmassy...started to soak my fruit for 2 cakes....had to go and buy a new bottle of Brandy though as some Brandy thief had polished off the last lot!!!.

Well that's Monday nearly over - hope you survived

    Oh yeah, my fav is your last one too. I would kill for a house with a sweeping staircase and a place for thevtree, just like that. (Keep playing the lottery eh?)
