Three of a kind

Hello everyone, I don't have enough time!!!! Too much to do not enough Christmas cards .......aaargh!
So here are three I put together, not particularly quick but certainly easy -hope you like them.

Here are some closeups...........



The Clarity lovers amongst you will recognise the Noel stamp - I got that when I went to the NEC. I haven't been as creative as Barbara Gray but I did want it to be quick and I haven't got all the stamps she uses. Isn't she a genius.
The little mouse is from Penny Black and is coloured with watercolour crayons. I have embossed the Noel in sparkle embossing powder and the die cut is in glitter card. The Holly in the corners is from another stamp set - which I will check out and add in when I have more time (never then!!)

   Lastly for a few challenges:-

The Crafty Pad - Embossing,

Totally Stampalicious - Clean and Simple,

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Last Minute Christmas,

Craft Your Days Away - Die Cuts,

Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - Christmas Carol (The first Noel)

Shirley 2 Girls - Holidays and Glitter,

Pixie Dust Studio - Let It Snow (not sure if this fits?),

Your Next Stamp Challenge - Clean and Simple Christmas,

Gingersnap Creations - Glitter,

Penny Black Saturday - Christmas foliage, and

Bunny Zoe's Challenge - Sparkle and Shine.

I hope you enjoyed your visit please let me know.

Great idea to use the 'O' as the central image on your card works really well. Thanks for playing along at CYDA this time.
