My First Christmas Cards Of 2015

I promised myself at the end of last year that I would start making my Christmas cards earlier this year. So here is my first four cards, two in the same colourway and two different, using the same stamp which is by Penny Black and available to buy from Oyster Stamps. The backing papers that I've used with these cards are all from Sue Smiths Stripe and Co, a CD that I've had for a few years now. I turn to this CD quite a lot at Christmas as I especially like the green and red stripes together with the green and red spots. These four are now ready to pop into my Christmas card box for 2015, a great start all I have to do now is keep it up and then I won't feel so much pressure nearer the time.

I would also like to enter this into this months challenge over on the Stamping Sensations blog, this month the challenge is Die Cuts and Punches - I've used Dies from Marianne - Poinsettia, Tonic - Present and All Occasion Dies - Happy Christmas.

Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comment which are always appreciated.

Beautiful cards Sue and great idea to get started as soon as possible. I always have cards left over from the previous year but this time I'm running low (the move put me behind). I hope you are doing well, take care, Shirleyxx
