More Christmas Cards...

This morning I had to dash on before breakfast to upload my card for the DCM dare from last week as I kept forgetting to take the photograph so this week I am being super organised and have just spent a happy half hour cheering myself up with some cardmaking. I have the chesty/lurgy bug thing that's going around our school so spent the day on the sofa watching trash on the television but now I'm feeling a bit better so thought I would have a play in my room.
The dare this week is to use stripes and I found this fabby striped paper in a pack which went perfectly with the Santa paper and the Santa toppers. I bought the felt one a couple of years ago in a sale but the first one I made myself based on one that I had seen in a Scrapbooks Etc magazine quite a few years ago.

Did any of you lovely crafters buy any of the new Sugar Nellie stamps that were released last night? I bought a few (okay then, more than a few!) so over the Christmas holidays when I'll have oodles of time, I'm hoping to play with them. I decided against buying the Christmassy one but had to have the wee little Scotty doggie and I think he'll be finishing my Christmas cards off for this year.

I love these cards Andrea. Particularly the paper pieced FC. I managed to restrain myself over the Nellies, but don't think it will be for long...
