Three Cards No Challenges

Got home from work about 3.30 this afternoon, having ended up working more hours than I am supposed to for this "phased return". It seems that "phased" has a definition that I am not aware of! Anyway, I wanted to get on with some Christmas cards this afternoon but got a little sidetracked - in fact, so sidetracked that squirrel-scrambled-egg-for-brains forgot to make a note of any of the papers I used!

First one is Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girls Sent With Love - I think the papers are from a Forever Friends pack - she's done with ProMarkers. Is the shading too subtle? I'm always afraid of overdoing it and not being able to put it right.

Then we have Penny Black To Have And To Hug, again done with ProMarkers, and using Daisy & Dandelion papers.

And finally, High Hopes Bearly Swooshin' but this time he's watercoloured. I think the backing paper is Papermania. Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder used but debossed instead.

Right then, it's Mr Toad's birthday so I'm off downstairs to do something with a couple of steaks and to saute some potatoes ..... Nigella Lawson I am not!

Hunny, those cards are stunning. My fave is the whipper snapper Christmas one. Fabulous. As for the shading, it's perfect. The art of shading is in it's subtlety, that's what makes them look more realistic and not overly cartoony (Yes, i know they're not real!) STill can't get on the PBFC either...very frustrating!
