These two Christmas cards were supposed to be quick makes, especially as there was no colouring but they seem to have taken the best part of a day!!  The pine tree sky lines were a mix of a Memory Box die and matching stamp which has taken me forever to get hold of and then somehow got two!!
The crooked fence is just fabulous from Marianne Dies Tiny series and the trees and the deer are Impression Obsession.  The sentiment is from a Christmas Lili of the Valley set. Can you seen that my blue sky has gone slightly bobbly after heating up the Shabby White frantage but I actually quite like the effect as it gives a bit of light and shade to the night sky - happy accidents and all that!
The elements of the next card are the same as above but without the added Frantage and trees in the foreground.  
I decided to forego frantage on this one!  Although I heat from underneath it still manages to get everywhere!
At least I've made a start-and I hope to carry on tomorrow!!!  I'll have to turn up my work rate though!!
British Bake Off finale tonight - good job it's on after I've been to my slimming club!!

You bought two of the same die and stamp sets - if you are worrying about how you will manage to fit all your craft room contents into boxes for the big move, I will be happy to relieve you of one of them!!!
Two fabulous scenic cards. I am really taken with the frantage. Might have to start doing this myself. Love Lesley
