Midnight Frost Christmas Cards

Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to everyone.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day.   Christmas Eve was spent by me preparing as much of the food as possible for Christmas Day.  Christmas Day morning, I started the roast pork early, then put the chickens on.  Cooked those, then started on the cauliflower/broccoli au gratin and potato bake.
The pudding then had to be steamed and the other vegies to cook.  A very busy morning, but it was worth it.  Everyone had a wonderful meal and had no need to eat tea that night.  rofl
The rest of year here is shaping up to be extremely hot and muggy so we'll see how much rain we get in the next few days. 

These are six more Christmas cards that I made this year.  I saw this card by Jocelyn
and loved it.  These are my versions.  The same sketch but I've embossed in Pewter, used different greetings, added an extra card stock layer and used different dp.  I punched a couple of the white strips and liked the effect.  I loved this paper pad when it came out last year and was very tempted to purchase some more....but I'm quite sure there will be something similar released by this time next year, so will be sensible. lol
Tomorrow is work for me...just a mail run but have to do a full day at the Post Office on Thursday.
Enjoy your day everyone and thanks for visiting.

Absolutely gorgeous! Love how you changed up the sentiments and varied the paper just a little bit. Helps when you're doing several of one kind. These are sooooo pretty! Happy new year, Leigh!
