November Christmascards

Hello everyone. Finally I found time to finish the blogpost with my November Christmascards -
I've had them finished for some days now, but haven't found the time to post them to the blog.
The challenge at Hjertebodens Juleblogg this month was simple enough "Hjerteboden". Most of the things used on the cards are bought at Hjerteboden. I'm sure I wasn't the only one using this challenge as an excuse for buying some new stuff from them - lol...
The papers on all three cards are from Maja Designs collections "Julen är Här" and "Vintage Winter".

On my first card I used the image Tilda with little Rudolph, from "A christmas story collection 2012".
 On this card I used DistressMarkers and -refills for colouring.
I've used dies from Spellbinders, Marianne Design and Magnolia.
On one of the paperedges I used the Vintage Floral punch from Martha Stewart.
The texts on this card I think were from Kort&Godt.
And of course I inked all paperedges with DistressInk WalnutStain (I really do not like it when the white core of the papers shows at the edges...)

This first card will be entered into the challenges at:
Hjertebodens Juleblogg - "Hjerteboden"
Magnolia Mania - "Tilda with an animal"
Tildas Town - "Anything Goes"

My second Novembercard is an easelcard.
On this I used the new "Nativity Collection 2012", from Magnolia.
Aren't they just Adooorable?!!?
It wasn't easy choosing which one to buy from the collection, as I wanted them all, but somehow I managed to narrow my "needs" down to these six images...
Inside this card I used a BIG textstamp I've had for years. The text is the Christmas Story (Juleevangeliet), but since it is so huge I find it quite difficult to use. This is actually the first time I've found use for it in a card. I think it worked perfect as background for the writingpanel, on a card with this theme.
Images and background are coloured with DistressMarkers and -refills. On the halos and the angelwings I put on some glitterstickles - the tiny tips on these bottles worked perfect on the halos :)
On this card I used dies from Spellbinders (inside) and Magnolia (the tag tucked under the backgroundimage)
Here's the card opened:
This card will go for the challenges at:
Hjertebodens Juleblogg - "Hjerteboden"
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
Kort o Mania - Jul (Christmas)
Just keep on creating - Christmas is around the corner

My third card is in bluetones, The image  is Jingle Jangle Tilda, from "A christmas story collection 2012). This image is coloured with ProMarkers.
I've used dies from Spellbinders (inside) and Magnolia (the tags on the front). I also used the Lace Heart Edge punch from Martha Stewart.
For decorations I used ribbons, lace, cheesecloth, a white "swirlstringthing" and some white berries. Oh, and two golden bells - I think they fitted the image so well :)

Here's the inside, with a text from North Star Stamps:
I'll send this card to the following challenges:
Hjertebodens Juleblogg - Hjerteboden
