Christmas cards for my mother

"Surfin' Santa" - x-st & cuttlebugged. The mount behind him is card that I covered with fabric. The design is from a Xmas x-st book that my dh gave me for an early Christmas prezzie!!
"Waving Santa" - x-stitched & cuttlebugged - the stars are from the Warehouse, they're very glittery in real life.

I loved stitching these snowmen - they're so cheery!
X-stitch penguin - mounted on white card, then on black. The cuttlebug background is the "Snowflake" border.
"Xmas Ornaments" - x-stitched from my new book - thank you DH!! You can't tell from the scan, but the back stitch is all done in metallic threads ...

These cards were all made for my mother for Christmas - I gave her 12 hand-made Xmas cards, all boxed up in 2 gift-wrapped and decorated boxes. This was definitely a good gift for someone that has everything, and didn't really need any more "stuff" ...

Great cards Lynette. I particularly like the X-stitch one - another hobby of mine too. TFS
