5 in 25 minutes

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well and not getting wet. It's pouring down here!
I am off out to my cousin's for the day for out monthly chinwagging session with lots of laughter and a pub lunch, and to take Christmas card samples for her to choose from. She loves creams and browns and they have to be very CAS and flat for posting. She has had two of these designs in previous years and asked for more, but I did 3 others as well to give her choices.  She will want 20 of the chosen one.
Anyhow, enough spouting on, here they are.






I have used Paper Mill Shop (yes that's how long I have had it) ivory hammered card because my cousin likes it. They are all A6.
 All image stamps are SU apart from the Bethlehem one which is Elzybells. 
Sentiments are SU, Penny Black and Stamps and Smiles, and all are stamped with Memento rich cocoa. I added just a sprinkle of gold Glamour Dust to finish :o)

P.S. It really did take me only 25 minutes to make all 5, from cutting and folding the card to finishing off with Glamour Dust!

Hello Jackie , wow your christmas cards are lovley. Love those trees !!
Thank you for your visit , it must have been quite painful for you to have cellulitis in your hand . I thought I had a bite or something on my face, then it swelled and I went to the hospital . I was a bit shocked to be told it could spread quickly to my brain as it was in my eye. YUK !! anyway all seems to have gone now ,I just have a sore eye to contend with .Biggest Hugs Elaine
