Beat the Christmas Rush

How's everyone getting on with their Christmas cards?  Are you managing to make a few each month?

I'm sticking with quick and easy (but oh it so goes against the grain), one using a couple of dies and the other using buttons for baubles.

If I were to make the cards above again I would probably cut another row, colour the houses in and attached with sticky fixers to give some dimension.  

I've done two of these so a total of 7 this month:)  While I was away on the BBs retreat, a couple of the girls helped me make this pile

of Christmas cards from a kit I bought off QVC about a hundred years ago and never made because they just weren't me.  I'm going to give them to a charity to sell. 

My favourite from our entries for February are these from Lindsay.

If you fancy joining in with this challenge, head over to Creative Craft World for more details.

Super cards, Susi. I love the buttons (of course) but the die cut row of houses is definitely my favourite.
