Christmas in January.....

In an effort to actually have some Christmas cards made before the big event, and prevent mass hysteria as is the norm......well in my case at least!! My talented crafty amigo Minxy has set a challenge that we both make at least 5 Christmas cards every usual I started off with good intentions and has made 2 stamped cards, using my beloved Tim Holtz mini stamp sets......and yep, you've got it, that's all!!! So I must make at least another three today to keep up with the challenge!!! Here are my two very quickly thrown together cards, using my Timmy stamps, Distress inks & stickles!!
Now I have another 3 to make to keep up with the January challenge!!!
My mum is a big fan of QVC shopping & very kindly buys me craft items from time to time, well she bought me a lovely Christmas kit from there, and I have made a few cards with it, however these won't qualify for our challenge as we decided all the cards must be made using stamps :D I better get a move on as no doubt Minxy has made hers......nip over to her blog to see if she has!!! Just click on her name & you'll be magically whisked over to her place!!
Thanks for visiting and please do return

Love 'n' hugs
