Are you finished your Christmas cards yet? If not here are some more for inspiration..

Only "2" more days till Christmas!!  Are you finished making all your Christmas cards yet??

I think this will be the last post I do before Christmas, so I though that I would show you a few more Christmas cards in case you are still working on yours, so I hope you get some inspiration from these :)

This one is made using a Magnolia Edwin Stamp.  I really like working with Magnolia stamps, they are so fun to colour!....

My second card I want to show you, I made for my friend Sara who LOVES owls.  I found this free digi download stamp at Scrappy Fairy ...

A Closer look at the colours of the Christmas owl...

The Merry Christmas sentiment on the front of the card is from the $1.50 bin at Michaels and stampped in Scarlet Red Cats Eye.  The frame around the owl is Spellbinders Nestabilities - Lacey Circles.

My third card was a card I made for my friend Linda who is a little bit of of turtle freak :)  This image I found on a kids Colouring Book Pages site.....Isn't he just so cute!

Here is a closer look at how happy the little turtle is slidding down a snowy hill in his shell.....

You can not really tell in the photo, but I also heat embossed snowflakes on in the sky with clear embossing powder to give the picture some dimention.  Also I heat embossed the circle sentiment in silver embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Michaels $1.50 bin and is from the December set.

And my fourth and final card before we break for Christmas holidays is my Mistletoe Mice from Stampaive that I made for my neighbours as they are a newly dating and such a sweet couple, so I thought that they deserved a cute card....
