Two flat cards

Today I have two cards I have made flat so that I can post them easily
I normally always have lumps and bumps of some sort on my cards
I wanted to make a few cards and need a easy design and these two images fitted the bill perfectly

This one is called Penguin Joy and by Crissy Armstrong
I have coloured with copics and added glitter and glossy accents too
The sentiment is from a set called Notables collection 2

My second card is using Candy canes and lights by Meljen's
Also coloured with copics and glitter and glossy accents added
The sentiment is also from the Notables collection 2

Mr Frosty

Another Christmas card today from me
It is getting nearer and really need to make more cards
Today I have used a stamp by Whimsy called
I have coloured him with copics and added a few touches of glitter and glossy accents.

I have been having a little play with making background paper with a technique shown to me by 
friends Kim and Kay
You use liquid pearls and cling film and dap it onto your card
Then when it is dry go over it with distress ink.
It give a lovely effect although my photo probable does not show it so well.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges
