Just Christmas cards

Hi everyone!
Things are getting slightly hectic in these parts! 
This week we have had to fit in a couple of social events, a trip to the gym and an appointment as well as the more mundane part of our lives, and yesterday we were out for the whole day! 
In between all this I have been making cards - some of which have also been part of my mission to use up some old papers, as well as use some new stamps!
I used a set of cute magazine freebie stamps and some Tim Holtz greenery.
 This is one that prompted hubby to ask the question "What has a wolf howling at a star got to do with Christmas?" Well there isn't really an answer to that, except that I quite like the combination - so much so that I am entering it in the  challenge at
Thats Crafty - Tis the Season
Country View Craft Challenges - Christmas 

The next two use the same set along with some freebie sentiments    

This one is using a new Woodware stamp that I  got a a discount

  I'm off to write some cards now - they should be in the post tomorrow!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Wonderful Christmas cards! I adore the little bunny rabbits in their blue scarves admiring the Christmas tree and the winter scene surrounded by holly is so beautiful 😁. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! J 😊

Even though I love all your cards, I simply don't understand how you come up with so many wonderful and unique cards. I find ONE design and stick with it. I applaud your use of so many of these. I'm also pleased to read you are using things you have on hand. Saves money, too. Great job and great cards.

Looks like you're going great guns on the cards, Chris - so great to use up leftovers and spares as you go too. Hope you get to relax a bit once all the life admin is done.

Each of these cards has a great design. Getting a hand-made card is the best.
I tried to choose a favourite (difficult) but I think it will be the sweet bunnies in their scarves, followed by the wolf.

Rita said...

I never questioned why the wolf was howling at the star. Wolves howling in the night reminds me of cold winter nights and seems to fit right in. Not sure why, either. Cute cards! :)

I would take them all - so beautiful - I think the sweet bunnies are my favourites!
Happy start of the new week Chris!

This is one of my favorite times of the year to blog visit! It makes me feel as if my mailbox is loaded with Christmas cards (which it is NOT!) Chris, all of your cards are fabulous, and I adore each for different reasons. Since I am a bunny lover, I have to say that's my fav, though! You are doing a wonderful job of getting those cards done! Hugs!
