Super cute Mistletoe Mice and Tilda wants a Hug!

hey chickies, have another couple of Christmas cards, the because I can and NEED them type! I've kept these simple again, with inked edges instead of matting them on card...

I used the same papers as my last post, and they go so well with this gorgeous Gillian Roberts stamp! I think I may CASE myself and make a few more like this one. The long thin card is a nice change too.. made it a bit hard to find a suitable sized image, but this worked out real well.

The next card uses more of the same papers but in another colour range. I had completely forgotten about these papers, and after having just brought a latest release Christmas pad.. and winning one from Lori :), I realise I still have ALL of last years! Well, almost! Hoarding paper and embellishments is going to be a thing of the past for me... I'm going to use all those delicious papers I ♥ so much until they are gone, then if i need more, and only if I plan on using them, I will allow myself to buy more. First things first - use up what I have!!
This 2nd card is being entered into Scrapbook Boutique's November Blog Challenge - NOTE: only open to Australian residents.

I have another almost finished card, using yet another brand of stamp and papers.. no more hoarding Loz!!
I may or may not be back with it a little later on... there'll be a heap more simple, 1-layer type cards from me, as my card stash is now at 5 Christmas cards! Need a heap more than that :)

I think my husband is with you when you say 'use what you already have'... I'm wondering if *I* may just struggle with that a little (lol)! Your cards are beautiful and I am glad that you have used that awesome DP! Thanks for joining us at Scrapbook Boutique!
