More Christmas Cards

Hi there ... I hope you are having a great start to the weekend ...
I'm still feeling rough but the sun is shining so that always helps

After making my card for the Jingle Belles challenge ... I saw that sweet Astrid had posted some more beautiful freebies on her blog ... I didn't need any more encouragement to create another 2 cards with the postal theme ...
So I can link them both up to Jingle Belles I will do them in 2 separate posts ...
First up is this one using one of Astrid's freebies


The postcard is the freebie and I backed it onto some pretty MF paper


Love this postcard ... it's just so pretty


It's just a simple card ... I added a small piece of lace from The Ribbon Girl  a glittery tree from Hobbycraft  and a little bit of sewing ... I reckon I could make quite a few of this design

Thanks for stopping by
