My Mum and Dad's Christmas Cards

Evening All. It's seems like ages since the last time I posted - although I don't think it's been that long. What with all the Design Team's having a Christmas break, I've not had any schedules to follow. And even though I've not been here for a couple of days, I've made quite a lot of cards so I'll share them with you over the next few days. Tonight, I thought I'd start with the Christmas cards that I made for my mum and dad this year - here they are:

For my dad's card, I used a fabby freebie image from Pollycraft, which I coloured with promarkers (and a bit of glossy accents for his specs!), I've used a Nellie Snellen multi frame die and my cuttlebug to cut the mat. All the papers are Imaginisce Cottage Christmas and I've just added a Craftwork Cards sentiment and lettering from Hobbycraft (which spells out, by the way: Dad plus Socks = Happy Christmas!)
Mum's card is a gorgeous Lily of the Valley image, which I've coloured with promarkers. All the papers and the peel off border are last year's Papermania, not 100% what the range was called, maybe 'Home for Christmas' but I wouldn't swear to it. I used my pokey tool to pierce a border all round the edge of the image and the semi circle and added a Craftwork Cards sentiment.
I'm going to enter them into the following challenges:

OK - that's it from me for now. I'll be back tomorrow with more cards and some fabby news! TTFN...
