Quick and Simple Cards

AND I AM back .. but I don't just have my cards ... I had a little surprise this morning 'cos I got my Christmas present early and found myself choosing a pair of lovely earrings from the jewellery shop :))

Can you see them? I'm in Valletta here already wearing my new earrings and of course my sun glasses to hide my wrinkles he he.. and a cap which I had got while in New Zealand last year and which I hardly wear 'cos it's never really that cold here ..
... but thought it really matched my new jacket that I bought last week. A jacket which I really could do without, but loved the colour so much ...
Aww but we need to spoil ourselves sometimes I think. Anyways here are my quick cards now which I told you about in my previous post...

This is the quickest one, just some embossing, dimensional stickers which I had bought from Australia last year, peel offs for the string and greeting and of course a little bow.
And for these two I used my Inkadinkadoo clear stamps. Very quick ones too, just two shades of blue for the snowflakes ..
and a little colouring with my promarkers on the images .. Can't see it, but there is also some very fine glitter all over which I did with my gel pens by smudging it all over.
I did a couple of these and so I am finally ready with my Christmas cards for this year!!! Not my usual style, and don't really like to make the same card more than once but I finally gave up and just did these... Hope the receivers will like them :)
