Christmas card making

As the days are getting longer my Christmas card classes are due to begin again. A chance to play with my new stamps!

This one is using stamps by Waltzing mouse. I plan to hide from the world for a few days to play more with this set which has a wonderful Nutcracker in it. The local German shop has agreed to stock some of my cards before they have even seen them so I best get cracking!
I plan to do a cute version of a card everytime this year as folks do love the colouring in part. This is a Molly Bloom stamp from the 2011 Christmas collection. As you can see I have glossy accented his nose which was not quite dry when I took the picture!
For both these cards I have used free papers which came with various craft magazines - I am hoping to do some recycling of Christmas cards too to help them get thrifty this year.
I cant believe I got to March before even making a card - I am soooo behind!
I am entering these into Crafty Hazlenuts challenge which is seeing red - one of my favourite Christmas card colours - I am sooo traditional!
Winter Wonderland which is a photo inspiration
and Simon says stamp which is anything goes
Hows your Christmas preparations coming along?
