Christmas Countdown

Christmas in September

 I have finished my September-Christmascards for Hjertebodens Juleblogg
Their September-challenge is to use Blue and Brown, so that's the maincolours of my cards.
It's only three cards, but lots and lots of pictures.
I hope you'll like them.
 This first one is a Paperbag-card, with two Magnolia-images masked together.
I've used lots of glitter and bling, pearls and swirls, cheesecloth and other stash to decorate it.
The image is coloured with DistressMarkers.

 I decorated the back of the paperbag same style as the front, just a little simpler, and stamped a christmasgreeting on it:

 Inside the paperbag I made a tag, with a little stamp-decorating. It gives plenty of space to write a personal christmasgreeting (almost space enough for a letter...)

 I'll also put my paperbag-card into the challenges at: 
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Sparkle and Bling
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
My Mums Craftshop - Anything Goes
Cutie Pie - No Flowers
The second card, also in blue and brown, and with a Magnolia-image cololia-image coloured with DistressMarkers. 
With pearls and swirls, laces, cheesittery decorations.
On the edge of the frontside I used my new Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch (Floral Wine).
This one is made after Totally Gorjuss' Sketch.
 A simple, flat decorated inside (Nellie Snellen dies and a stamped greeting from Kort& Godt):

I'll send this card to:
Crafty Catz - Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - Sketch

 The last card is made with Sketchy Colors sketch (doesn't make their deadline, as they closed the challenge 12 hours earlier than the blogtext said... :( )
The froggy got back on track again so I made it :D
Again a Magnolia-image coloured with DistressMarkers. On this one I've used a little crushed velvet for the fur-details.
 The images on all three cards are coloured with Distres>
 This cards inside is also simple and flat decorated - I find it best to keep the inside flat, both for folding and airmail :)
 On the back, I used one of the stamps I got from Maya - isn't it georgeous! (last post)
My last septemberchristmascard goes for these challenges:
Stampin' for the Weekend - Starting Christmas Early
Creative Card Crew - Christmas

Thanks a lot for using a little time with me.
