Panic, less than a week to go!

Now I am making cards with all the bits I have to hand, and the images I can find that I coloured and die cut a year or maybe two years ago and these are the result. I have a lot more to make and have just about run out of handy bits so next I need to make very quick cards! (The fact I have had a relapse of my sinus problems hasn't really helped here). Today we have shampooed the carpet and cleaned the floors, washed all the dog toys and half the bedding, the other half will go in hopefully tomorrow when the first is dry, and all because a certain little man is coming to visit for Christmas and is crawling now! Dogs are due to be shampooed tomorrow too!
I have had this Darice topper set for ages, and didn't want to use it because it is real felt and is lovely. 

Another Darice topper set I had ages ago in a mystery box from the USA I think, the card with punched mat was all ready for something to go in the middle, I added red and green stickles into the holly shapes.

This fairy jumped into my hand and the the Snowflake Circle (Hero Arts) was already stamped and embossed and cut, they go well together.

Penny Black dog again, on one of those scalloped cards I have a pile that I die cut which is handy, the card is embossed already with Seasons Greetings, so just added some Crafty Ribbon.
I have entered this one in:
I love Promarkers - anything but square challenge ending 2nd Jan

Spyder Lyn Young's fab snowman and robin image again, another scalloped card and more Crafty Ribbon.
I have entered this one in the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards challenge - Snowmen

Another snowflake circle (Hero Arts) mounted on a scalloped card with a Spellbinders bird, and a bit of ribbon.

The house panel was done by running some metallic red card though a die cutter with a brass stencil then sanding the colour off to show the houses. Scalloped card and Crafty Ribbons Ribbons (from Bev's Christmas Bag).

This time Fluffles by Stampendous is a fairy cat, freebie paper, Crafty Ribbon ribbon, I love this and bought some and then won more in Bev's Bag and even more in Laura's blog candy!

Fluffles is helping with the trimmings! More Crafty Ribbons., This image is heat embossed in green.

This one had to be entered in the ABC Christmas challenge - Deck the Halls!

Remember the tags I made a couple of weeks ago? Well they are too good for tags, and I can't make all my tags like this so they are now on cards, freebie papers. Images by Paper Pretties.

I have entered this card in:
The Joanna Sheen challenge - with love at Christmas ends 10th Jan

Finally for now, this card was already made, I just added an insert. Tree embossed and sanded Cordinations paper, gems, torn vellum and holly eyelets.
