The quickest two cards ever!

Phew! I'm getting there with my backlog of Christmas cards!! I would be finished already but my husband handed out cards to his colleagues and I ended up with requests for 8 cards!! Argh!! I really need to learn to say no this close to Christmas but I guess I'm just thrilled people like them enough to want to buy some :)! These have to be the two quickest cards I've ever created! I wanted a couple of flat cards for posting as I've already spent a small fortune posting ones with flowers etc on! I had some tiny scraps of paper in my stash with baubles on that would have been hidden by an image so decided to use them on their own. They're smaller than I'd usually make because of the size of pieces I had to work with but at least that's another two cards out of the way!

The first one I added a band of ribbon from my stash and a single gem to the centre of the red bauble.

The second one I added a tiny ready made bow to the wreath and another single gem to the bauble. I think I could be converted to this type of card very easilly at Christmas time LOL!

Hope you like them and thanks for looking! x
