I haven't had much time for blogging these past couple of weeks so while I'm relaxing with a glass of bubbly I thought I'd quickly blog a few Christmas cards before the year is out.  These for the final 3 cards I made (on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day morning!) for my hubby, my Mum and Aunt.

The first one is one of my favourite Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella coloured with copics, a little (poor) inking around the image some DP and some words cut on my silhouette and stuck on.  I finished the girl with puffy foam and then decided to cut the shape and discovered that puffy foam squashes quite badly in your die cut machine!  On a good note, if you scrape it place again with a ball tool, it does re-puff a little......  The shoes got the same treatment but I coloured it with copics once puffed.

These two both feature super cute digi images from Wee stamps.  I picked the snow fairy for my Mum who loves birds.  I picked the other one for my Aunt as she looks after our cat when we go away.

Both were coloured with copics with more words cut on silhouette - finished with glossy accents and some Christmas bling.
