Oh No, Not More Christmas Cards!!!

Yes I know you are all sick of Christmas cards, but if I put these two on today then I will give you something that is not a Christmas card tomorrow. I promise!

This card I made yesterday. I love this stamp, it is just gorgeous.
Stamp: Sugar Nellie
Coloured with: Twinkling H2Os
Equipment: Cuttlebug ~ Nestibilites
Sentiment: Freebie from magazine
Embellishments: Flowers ~ Prima

The skater card I made this morning. The stamp is one of my Mum's, she stamped a few of them out for me while she was here over Christmas. I couldn't believe it though, she turned up on Christmas Eve and said
"I ordered some new stamps a couple of days ago and they turned up this morning so I thought I'd bring them over with me."

When she showed me the stamps, two of them were ones I'd bought her for Christmas and were all wrapped up sitting under the Christmas Tree. One of them was the North Pole one that I have used on this card and the other was another round one but it has Merry Christmas round the edge and a man and lady in the centre. I had to give her the lecture on not buying stuff for yourself so close to Christmas that I have previously had to give to my husband. Honestly! I don't know why can't they wait until after Christmas!!! LOL! On the plus side, because mum already had them I got to keep a set as an extra present. Hooray for me!
Stamps: Magnolia
Coloured with: Twinkling H2Os
Papers: Dovecraft
Equipment: Cuttlebug ~ Nestibilies (the new rectangles that mum bought me!)
