Two super quick Christmas Cards!

Still feeling really rough :(  I made these two in super quick time before I went to collapse on the sofa! This bug is a real nuisance; I hate to feel slowed down! Both these digi images and papers are from the Dreamees Christmas Memories CD.

This beautiful tree digi is my new favourite from the CD. I've used the Big and Juicy Hydrangea ink pad to do the shading behind the trees with a touch of Spun Sugar distress ink for the really pale pink in the middle. This is such a versatile image - I might try inking with oranges and yellows next. The border is the Memory Box Spring Border (again, sorry!). Flowers and ribbon from WOC.

This next one was even quicker and would be great for batch card making. The image has been coloured with copics and then cut out with the Christmas Ornament die from Spellbinders.

The baubles and corners are also from Dreamees (Cuttables 3 CD, but also available as die cuts). I love this soft lilac colour but you could could go all reds and greens for a real traditional look.

I'm going to try to finish a Saturated Canary card I started yesterday - my first attempt to colour went in the bin as poor Honey's face resembled a satsuma. Soooo not a good look!!

Hope you're having a great week, big hugs, Jayne xx
