Christmas for the boys

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well and have enjoyed a good weekend.  Been quite a busy one here but feel as though I am a lot closer to being ready for christmas.  Ordered the last of my presents, got some wrapping done and some more cards finished.  Can start to relax a bit now and look forward to the holiday.

I am now in the process of doing my family christmas cards and these two are for my nephews.

These were quite quick and simple cards to do. The images were some freebies in a recent copy of Creative Cardmaking. I matted them onto some glitter paper for a bit of sparkle.  I used kraft card and some plain coloured paper for the background. Some ribbon and a sentiment then finished the cards.

Thanks for popping by and for all your lovely comments that you leave.  My apologies if I do not get round to visiting you all and commenting as often as I would like at the moment.  Hopefully, when christmas is over, things will calm down and I will have more time.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
