Getting a start on Christmas cards

Yes, I know, I had all good intentions to get some Christmas cards made throughout this year, but it just didn't happen.  However, starting in October is better than starting in December!  I took my stash of Christmas stamps and my inks, and went over to my sister's place to make some simple Christmas cards with her and my two eldest nieces. 

On this first card, I used the gorgeous Stampin' Up stamp, "Dasher", but I went with a colour I would not normally use with Dasher!  I cut a hillside from some patterned paper (sorry, no idea where that paper is from), and added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, which I curved to match the paper. 
(I think I need to add some glitter to Dasher's antlers.)
The next card uses the snowflakes from the Hero Arts set, "Decorate your Holidays", with a sentiment from Victoria's Secret (an Aussie stamp company), and some ribbon and gorgeous glittery embellishments from Stampin' Up.

 This card was made by Caitlin (who is 9) - she used "Gifts Galore" from Stamp It, and a sentiment from a Stampin' Up set.  (sorry for the poorly lit and out of focus photos of the girls' cards - I photographed them at my sisters place using my phone, and the lighting was not ideal for photography.)
And, finally, this card by Lauren, who is 12. She used a sentiment from Hero Arts, and kept her card CAS by adding some ribbon, buttons and a bell in Christmassy colours. 

Thanks for visiting - have a happy World Cardmaking Day!  :D
