Beat the Christmas rush

Good morning everyone

A very quick post from me this morning before my Blog Hop post goes live!

As you can see, for a change, my post is about Christmas Cards. 

Now I don't profess to be much of a card simple works best for me... but last night I sat down and made 8 cards in honour of my friend Sues', Beat the Christmas Rush challenge on her blog, Me and Mine where she challenges us to make 5 cards a month so it isn't all left until December to catch up!

As I left it so late to come to the party, I decided I'd make 8 instead. So here, they are.. simple trees cut from some ancient MME Lost and Found Christmas papers, cut using the SU pennant punch, and added to a little trunk that I cut from scrap that I had rolled through a crinkle roller (no idea what the real name is but I'm sure you know what I mean!) 

I them heat embossed the Merry Christmas.. and added pearl dots to the 'trees... job done, simple but effective!

Do pop along to Sues blog too as she is a far better card maker than I am, as are some of her visitors, so why not link up your cards too? 

Thanks for stopping by!
