Christmas Parchment cards

Hi,
Although its warmer today, its foggy and drizzly after heavy rain yesterday and during the evening the snow has all but gone, just little bits left here and there on the garden.
I know what you are thinking I rarely bring you any parchment well here today I bring you the family Christmas cards.
I am afraid these are not the best pictures the light was not good before Christmas, I don't like using sub standard photos but these cards were late being made so I had little time to wait for the light to improve. They are all the same design as such, I used the parchment Christmas CD from My craft Studio, these are the first cards I have made from the Cd's, I am not sure about the Cd's as I like to do my parchment from scratch.
I worked the designs in the middle from a grid, the pattern is the same but all done in a different way. The card above was to my Mother and is grid work all over the middle, with the crosses cut out.

This card is to special Friends and the pattern was worked in strips across the middle.




This card was to Vernon's sister Dee and Brother in Law Peter with the pattern done in strips downwards.




This card was to Vernon's Dad and was worked into squares.


This is a very poor picture and these two cards were of a Christmas tree with green gem stones randomly added to the tree. This design was also from the Christmas parchment My craft Studio C.D. I did some embossing on the bubbles.
All the designs had green shinny paper behind to bring out the designs.
I wish you all a very happy New Year and Hope 2011 will be a better year for everyone.
Thank you for popping by today and look forward to seeing you again in blog land in 2011
Hugs
Margaret
