A Christmas Trio

I finally got all my Christmas cards finished this week and sent off although I think I still missed the postal deadline but hopefully they will still arrive in time! Still need to get some presents though so that is a job for this week on my way home from Swedish lessons.

Here are three cards that I made together using a Lili of the Valley stamp and paper piecing. I coloured the greenery with promarkers and added some sparkle with stickles and shine with glossy accents. I always have these wonderful ideas then realise as soon as I start that I hate fussy cutting - when will I ever learn?!

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas
A creative Romance - Sparkle at Christmas
A Little Bit Crafty - Christmas Cheer
Crafting Musketeers - Layer it up
Craft Mojo - Christmas
My Mum's Craft Shop - Winter/Christmas
Penny Black and more - Traditional Christmas Colours
