Back from NY and some quickie Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, well we're back safe and sound after our run-in with Hurricane Sandy who arrived three days after we arrived in New York.  She caused such devastation and heartbreak for many New Yorkers and Americans but she really didn't spoil our long awaited holiday, we had a great time and did most of what we wanted to. Some things were curtailed such as the shopping but I will make up for that (already have with the 50% off sale at The Artful Splodger!).  
I'm just catching up with my commenting and thought I'd show some quickie Christmas cards which I need to make a whole load more of and even more quickly!!
These are made with an Indigo Blue Christmas Tree stamp the first three which I've gilded with Indigo Blue Flakes and the last I've heat embossed.  I think the first is my fave!! 

Thanks for checking in, hope to catch up with you soon!xx

I'm entering my cards into the following challenges:

The Stamp Man - Embossing (bottom card)
Delicious Doodles  - Embossing (bottom card!)
Christmas Stampin - Anything Goes
