Hi Folks- Christmas is coming....

Sorry I have not been posting for a couple of weeks, we've been working a lot, and our car decided he wasn't going to work anymore! Three weeks in the garage and  OMG - HOW MUCH? later, he's back to his old self. Anyhow, life is now back to normal- well as normal as I am ever likely to get, which isn't really saying a lot,honestly.

So, I thought I really need to get around to the Christmas card thing(!), and while I was sorting through various boxes, I found a few cards I had made in previous years, and I decided I would share a couple today. This one goeas back aways, before I really got into stamping. The Santa image comes from a Joanna Sheen cd, as does the matching backing paper. The two corner pieces were from a Docrafts pad, I think. The next one does have a stamped image, the NOEL,which is a u/m clear stamp, and I am sorry but I have no idea who it was by, and some K&Co backing paper.

The same NOEL stamp is used here, and I really love the snowy houses stamp, which is by Inkadinkado, and appears to be a PSX image, which probably means it is no longer available!
 In case anyone wants to try & find it, the code on the stamp is: 94614, PSX-K, Fine Line Classics.
If you enlarge the image, you will see that the trees and Roofs have had fake snow added with a Snow Writer.
Last one for today, you can see I get a lot of mileage out of that NOEL stamp, lol. The Seasons Greetings image is by Hero Arts,K4827, Collage Seasons Greetings. I stamped it in black on some ivory/gold marbled paper.

Absolutely the prettiest cards ever! I just love the image on the first card...oh heck, I love em all darn it!!! Great cards Shaz...honestly!!! So sorry to hear about your car. Not a great time of the year but then again, the cost of fixing a car wouldn't be good anytime of the year!

I bet the car fixing cost an arm and a leg, too. Just what you want before Christmas. Lovely cards, though. I am just in the middle of putting inserts in the ones I have done so far.
