My First Christmas Cards for 2013

Believe it or not, I've just finished a couple of Christmas cards!

I sadly missed a DT call at ABC Christmas Challenge but I'd like to follow each one of their Challenges this year and make a card for every letter!!

The first is A for Animals and I've made not one but TWO cards with animals:
I must admit... I forgot I had bought these lovely images from Pink Petticoat a long time ago and when I rediscovered them, I had to use them immediately!
The papers are also from Pink Petticoat and the doneky and sheep are colored with Copics and glitter and mounted on a white card with a delicate ribbon, a felt snowflakes and... sigh!...two buttons (it's always so difficult to part with my buttons!).
I've made two cards because I liked both images and I couldn't choose only one but they've turned out so pretty that I'm thinking about making a card with every animal of the set!

My card is for the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge: A is for Animals
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 190: Christmas in January

Well, 341 days to next Christmas and two cards are done!
