My Nieces Xmas Cards x 16

Good morning all,   Well I've managed to finish my Christmas cards for my Great Nieces all 16 of them!!!!   Phew! 

To save myself an awful lot of work I've opted for the ready coloured squares from Lili of the valley,  although I did colour in little ted with light fawn flexi marker and put a pro marker blush colour over those sweet faces and touched up the hair.

I used glossy accents on Ted's eyes and nose and the sweet hanging fairy (it's quite hard to see in the pictures) for the fur trim I've used glossy accents and polar white glitter.  I also used red/green/gold glitter on the little accents of the images. 

On the second card I've used seam binding to make the little scarf, this was my sweet Daughter's idea (she is a clever girl) Anyway a full recipe for my cards are below this post.  I hope my Niece's appreciate them. lol x
