Quick and Easy

Evening all of you happy crafters. Thought I would count up how many cards I need for posting this Christmas. I was shocked to find I needed far more than I had. Actually I had plenty but they were too thick for the normal post. I also need some to post to the US as well. I love all the embellishments and buttons but the lady at the Post Office is quite mean when it comes to just the odd corner that doesn't go through her template. The cost of posting has shot through the roof! 
That meant I had to come up with something quick and easy but no thick embellishments, so here we go.






Not sure which one I prefer but they certainly fit the bill of quick and simple.
The background is made from a Cuttlebug embossing folder, the snowy hills are cut freehand (the off cut forms the front drift) from white card and the trees are from a Cuttlebug Cut n Emboss set. The trees were distressed using Tim Holtz 'Shabby Shutters'. They do look different in each card but they are the same. Greetings are from a Woodware Patchwork Trees set.



This is another quick card I made using a Woodware stamp which I coloured using Copics with a little bit of added Stickle sparkle in red. A small red bow and off-cut of red ribbon complete.

I shall enter the last card in the Allsorts challenge - Bring on the bling and the Sketch Saturday challenge.
Off to a felt making class tomorrow so I don't know if I will have time to craft when I get back, 
so toodle pip for now.
