Time saving cards

I love making christmas cards.....but I have a lot to make......so anything time saving is great for me.....and I was inspired to make a couple by Louise's post on Jennifer's Frosty Festivities event.
I started by stamping a few fun images and colouring them....always quicker to colour a few at a time.
I then pulled out a part used paper pack.....much quicker to use the same pack for more than one card.....layered up the cards......before punching out some stars and glasses to add......finished off with a few gems. 
The final addition was the sentiments.....which were already prepared and in my sentiments box.
I do love that die cut 'Christmas greetings'....but can rarely use it as I don't often remember to leave enough room....though the 'Merry Christmas' is probably far more apt for these cards!!

These are fab Jacky, love your pretty DPs and great image too!
I'm planning to do much the same this year and make my cards basically all the same, hoping it will avoid the usual last minute rush!

Ha ha, these make me smile! I do love a glass of wine on Christmas day, but hopefully I don't end up looking like that! I love the placement of the 'christmas greetings' sentiment. Thank you so much for joining in the Frosty Festivities challenge! x
