Christmas is coming

Winterwonderland's  new challenge is to make a CAS Christmas card this week.
This is not something I find easy, but as Christmas is looming ever nearer, I have given it a go.

The first card  is made with an old favourite stamp, used so many times over the years that the maker's  name has rubbed away.  The second card  has a Butterfly Kisses stamp.
Both were shaded with Vintage photo distress inks, I resisted the urge to add more , but I realy think they look a bit bare.

                                                Happy Halloween Day Everyone.

This is the back and front of   my  Fat Page for the   Blog Buddies Swap  with I sent to Cath.
All the stamps are from Chocolate Baroque.

Thankyou for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
