Christmas Cards

Oh My Goodness, where has December gone?
The kids break up on Friday for the holidays, and thankfully I've not got much left to do/buy/organise/wrap etc, just need to have the big clean and keep the washing up to date and hopefully we're all set.
I'd like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that I won't be sending Christmas Cards this year, all the ones I've made are pretty much on display at The Papeterie, and I've been so busy with other work that I haven't had any time to make some. I also feel it would be a bit of a cop out if I sent shop-bought cards, so this year I've decided to make a donation in lieu to Mrs Murray's Cat & Dog Home in Aberdeen. 
But I did have a couple of commissions to make for one of the other mums at school, giving you a wee bloggy wave Lindsay :)
She wanted me to make cards for her 2 best friends and their families, so here's the first one...
 The tag is removable (see bottom photo), here's a better pic to show all the glamour dust...

 This pic shows the greeting tag removed...

Materials list:
Henry in Christmas Bauble digi stamp from Whiff of Joy
printed onto Diamond White cardstock from The Papeterie
Coloured with Promarkers: Umber, Burgundy, Crimson, Cardinal Red, Burnt Orange, Coral, Sunkissed Pink and Flexmarkers: Amaranth Red, Blue Grey 4, 3, 2, 1
Kraft tag diecut using Tim Holtz Tag & Tie Alterations die and stamped with Hero Arts CL630 Miracle of the Holidays stamp set
red lacquer and white cardstock from The Papeterie
White cardstock embossed with Spellbinders Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities folder
red satin ribbon, snowflakes punched from glitter paper with Martha Stewart snowflake punch, adhesive gemstones

Right, I'd better get on with my online shop for this week, need to get some goodies for the kids christmas parties. Back soon with the other card commission :)

Love the card and glitter. Also love that the tag is removable. I've been working at some last minute Christmas cards today.
Will have to check tonight how many more I need...

That's fab. And I am feeling a bit guilty that I haven't really made any Christmas cards yet... Oops.

Great card Debbi, love how the tag comes off. I'm not surprised to hear you haven't had time to make your own Christmas cards. You've had a really busy year this year and I'm sure the animals and staff at Mrs Murray's will appreciate your donation. Unfortunately not all animals are as loved and looked after as ours.

Hope your week goes as planned.

that would be a super card even without Henry Mouse. Love the way that the tag can be removed.
Take care with it all.
