Christmas Cards

I decided to get ahead this weekend with making some  Christmas cards
These little owls are sooooo very cute and they were a freebie
from The docrafts facebook page 
I printed them out onto an A4 sheet and cut each one out.
I then added glossy accents to there eyes, beaks feet and any holly there was. I added white shimmer detail sparkle to the Christmas hats.
I decided on the easel cards, these are my absolute favourite type of cards at the moment.

This one was made using one of the freebie papers that came with the owls.(There are 4 freebie papers)

All of the other cards I have used papers from
(the crackers and bows have all been made from same papers)
I must admit those crackers took me ages they were too small for my fat fingers
The Sentiments are from

I tried to make each card a little different, but of course each one contained at least one of those sweet owls (I attached them with foam tape so they really pop of the card)

It was fun using all my Christmas trims, I love using the little berries and the tiny acorns

I finished off by adding some personalised baubles which I dusted with Barn Door Distress ink

Happy Thursday Everyone
Wow these weeks fly by!
I am here to show you the lovely new digi from
The Paper Shelter
called Hope
and you can find her here.

I was so excited when she arrived the other day and I could not wait to colour her up,  which I did with my beloved Graph'It Markers, added a little liquid pearls and some smidgings of Glamour Dust.

Is'nt she just adorable!
With her you also get the lush paper which compliments her so well, it had to be used.
The bows, flower and flourishes all cut from the paper too with a few pearls added.
