I'm back with some Christmascards

Looking through my blog I've noticed how long ago it's been since I posted anything. No wonder I can hear crickets every time I open my blog :D It's not like I haven't made anything, just haven't felt like blogging about it.

Yesterday I started on a few Christmascards. I wasn't planning on making any this year as I was making decorations and cards for a wedding at the beginning of december. But I took out a few images, matched some promarkers with the papers I wanted to use and BAM!

All I can say is: the papercrafting bug is back. Can I hear a YEY!?

So yesterday I managed to make four cards. Usually I don't like to repeat myself, but since everyone will only get one card, no one has to know that the others got similar ones, am I right? Still, even if I used the same paperline and colors I still used different images because let's face it, how fun is it to color the exact same image? I get bored after two, haha.
I was quite pleased with how fast my coloring skills came back. The cards are quite simple, but I invested the time in nice coloring instead.

For these two cards I have used images from Magnolia.
The papers I got years ago in a crafting magazine.
I have used promarkers to color the images, my lovely cuttlebug for the shapes and some random flowers and embellishments for decorations.

I'm entering some challenges too. Jeez, it's been a while. I wonder if anyone remembers me? :D
