A bumper crop of Christmas cards

Good morning all

Today I'm brining you my selection of 'Beat the Christmas Rush' cards that I have made for my friend Sues challenge over on her blog 'Me and Mine' where she challenges you to make a few cards each month so that, come December, you already have a batch of Christmas cards already made up and you won't have a mad dash to get some made. 

In my case I have made some here for you to see. Now, I don't often make cards, so I haven't got into the 'production line' way of making cards and each one are individual.. and hence.. simple!   

Anyway, here are a few more I've made and no doubt there will be more soon. 

The Reindeer one and the pearl dots one have embossed backgrounds.. the pearl one with a snowflake and pearls as centres, the reindeers is just 'fern' shapes.

The bauble one is made from christmas washi tape stuck on card and punched out and put on spotty embossed paper. 

The blue one is a SU snowflake stamp with crystals and pearls added.

The Christmas tree is simply lots of circles arranged like a tree and tiny confetti gold stars stuck in between the circles.

The pearl card is also on embossed snowflake paper and the dove is from a Crtistmas die cut swap over on UKS, simply mounted on navy card with a row of graduating pearls and a 'Merry Christmas' label.

The tree card, far left, is another die cut from the same swap which I have 'decorated' with tiny nail gems from the pound shop, added a crystal on the top and a row of tiny crystals on the base. 

Hope this may have given you some ideas for quick and simple cards to make in 5 minutes.

Thanks for popping by.. do let me know what you think.. it'll make my day!
