Christmas is coming !!!!!

Hi Peeps,
 I've got two cards for you today, haven't I been good lol, especially seeing as they are Christmas cards and I don't do Christmas till November the 29th  at the earliest lol,

My first card is for The Sugar Bowl using the lovely sketch provided,and of course a gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp called Santa with Lantern, wow I loved colouring this,
Challenges~ The Sugar Bowl
I coloured him with copics and added a little glamour Dust for his trim, with a hint of gold stickles in the lamp he also has Diamond Glaze on his boots, well we can't have Santa with wet feet now can we lol,

Papers are Dovecraft  Let it Snow, Small tags are a sissix die,

My second card is using a Magnolia Tilda stamp, this time she's coloured in Distress inks, need more practise with these lol, but I enjoy using them, again there's a lot of glamour dust, stickles and sparkle, well it is Christmas lol,
Challenges, Just Magnolia, ~ Fab Sketch,   Totally Tilda ~ Handmade Flowers,

The same papers were used for this too and to fit with the sketch and colour scheme I just added the tag, the flower is made up of a Marianne die which has all three flowers on it, the stamens is a L-EM punch, Snow flakes are a cuttle bug die and I've cut them out of Glittered card,
I'm trying to catch up on my commenting after Mr Bloggers tantrums, hope he's all better today, I think I'm getting a cold, oh the joys of shopping in town with people coughing and spluttering near you lol,
Have a nice day!

I thought I was getting lost until I realised you had changed your design again lol - it is fab, are you just bored or does it offer more facilities?
Both your cards are fabulous - I love cubby Santa's as they are always so jolly. Well Christmas will be upon us soon so better get my finger out and make a few more, thank you for your inspirational input. Hugs Sarah x
