Special xmas cards

Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are on the road to recovery!!  Today I'm going to post pics of the cards I made for the special people in my life. Couldn't post these before xmas as one of them was only finished on xmas eve!!!
This one was made for my daughter with a Molly Bloom stamp which I coloured with Promarkers. I mat and layered papers (which I think are from a Fizzy Moon paper pack) and added stickles around the edges. I finished off with flowers from Wild Orchid and a greeting from Lily of the Valley.
 This next card is for my son. The image is from Teddy Bo and again it was coloured with Promarkers. To add a little sparkle I covered the image with double sided sticky paper and added Glamour Dust. Again it was mat and layered onto fancy papers, stickled around the edges and then I finished off with some Organza ribbon, coloured with Promarkers, a greeting and a little silver hanging snowflake.
This card was for my darling mum and dad. The image is from Gayle Bond and can be found on the Scrapbook Sisters website. Again I coloured it with Promarkers but chose to black out the male image. I added some Glamour Dust to the dress and then mat and layered and finished off with stickles around the edge and the greeting.
This card was made for my boyfriend using a picture taken when we had a Christmas visit to London to see the lights and we visited Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park. I used a holly wreath image from Meljen's Designs and coloured with Promarkers. I then layered it over the image and mounted with 3d pads, finishing off with a greeting. 
The last card today was one I made for my daughter from her brother. The image is from Digital Doodling and once coloured I glittered the wings with Glamour Dust. I also used Glamour Dust around the edge of the picture rather than stickles and the effect is still amazing. This is the first time I have printed an image with the greeting around it, after a bit of practice I'm sure it will get easier and the sizing will be better. Turned out ok in the end though I think!! I finished off with the snowflakes which were diecut on the Cuttlebug and added some glitter to give them some sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my special cards and please visit again to see what I will be doing next. I have lots of new craft goodies to play with and will be getting to work with them very soon.

Happy New Year to you all.
