Divas by Design - Feeling Festive

Hello.... I hope you are all well.... it's Team A's turn over at 

and we have a wonderful theme for you this week of....

'Feeling Festive'

Can't quite believe how Christmas is fast approaching this year... not too long to go now... so hope you will all join us for our Festive Challenge!

I don't usually do this... but thought I would make two cards this week... just to get you all feeling extra festive. They were fairly quick to make as I've used pre-coloured images from LOTV but I'm quite pleased with how they came out. The scrummy papers were freebies with Papercrafting magazine.

I've added some Spellbinders Snowflakes and some Star Nailheads to both cards. The 'Precious Stocking' below is from Memory Box and I've cut out the top from white felt on my ebosser.

Sorry the photos are a bit grainy... I should have got my lightbox out but was too tired!!

We are sponsored by the wonderful Stamp and Create

I hope you can pop on over to our main blog at Divas by Design and see the rest of the teams gorgeous and very Christmassy creations!!! :-))

Well I very nearly forgot to schedule my post for this morning!! I was just on my way to bed and checked my online Calendar... it's a good job I leave myself notes to remind me!!
Looking forward to the weekend again but I am bit sad as think it is the last episode of The Paradise... this series has gone by way too quickly... at least Mr Selfridge is on after Christmas... and Call the Midwife... so something to look forward to in the New Year!  ;-)
Thanks for all your lovely comments!
Take Care
Love and hugs

These are fab Sue - I love these LOTV precoloured images for Christmas cards - I used them last year too - ( if you're me!!) it's impossible to make all your cards without a little help to make them simpler - theses are a great design hugs Judith x

Two brilliant cards, you can always rely on LOTV images, especially the collection that the stocking came from, they are my favorite Christmas image collection.
Lovely layouts and great papers.
Thanks so much for your comment on Ethan's card, he is thrilled to bits.
