Waltzingmouse and Christmas

I have been trying to get into Christmas mode ... you know that is hard for me in October ... and I am prompted even more by the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge this week ... which looks pretty "Christmassy" to me even though some of the DT have made fantastic non Christmas cards ... and as I am going away for a long weekend - no crafting or computer ... eek!  I am thinking of taking some things to cut out so I don't have withdrawal symptoms ... So I have been playing around with some Websters pages (digital) ... the WM sketch ...

my card ....


I found it so hard to photograph this and capture the softness of the colours - the background is a creamy colour and I have been all over the house trying to capture it's true prettiness ... perhaps the glitter doesn't help?


Whilst awaiting my new stamps from WM ... I carried on with some more of the gorgeous Websters Papers and made these two cards ... 1st card



2nd card ...


So there we are .... I'm getting a start at Christmas anyway .... 

Till soon
Ros

Beautiful cards, Ros! I know what you mean about the photography, but you did well. I love your house! especially the roof! It is too sunny here to do Christmas, I still have butterflies!

A gorgeous, soft and lovely christmas card for the WM challenge. Perfect! And the other two? I have a place in my heart for gingerbread houses; it reminds me of my childhood. They're lovely.
Your christmas cards are fabulous!
