Christmas Playtime

Evening Everyone
I begin to think that my cards this week should have a water theme rather than Christmas since we are in danger of being washed away here. Why is it that the weather men only ever seem to get it truly right when their predictions are for terrible weather lol.
A couple of girlfriends came round last night for a little Creative playtime and I decided to show them the wonderful technique that Mynnette has been sharing with us on her Tuesday Technique MONTHLY CRAFTY BLOG CHALLENGE THING, as she puts it. 
I absolutely love this technique and as you can see I got quite carried away when I was showing the Girls.
Fortunately they agreed with me and good fun was had by All, and several Christmas cards were added to every ones stash.
Why not pop over and visit Mynnette and check out her really clear instructions on how to make this type of card.
 I managed to incorporate several previously stamped and embossed images from my bits box, although I couldn't help making a couple of cards completely from scratch using the Woodware Christmas background stamp and the Holly set in the first two cards in this post.
I don't seem to have shifted my headache again today. A second day on the new till system is no better, so I must try and get my head down for a few hours at least.
I hope that you have a go at making some cards using this technique, and don't forget to link them to the challenge, I'm sure that Mynnette would love to see you.
