Crafty Friends Christmas Cards

Hello everyone, sorry I have been mia, I caught a particularly nasty cold/cough and although I have been crafting I haven't felt up to posting or commenting.

I made quite a few of this card for my crafty friends and when creating for such a discerning clientele I like to use my NBUS. I have looked at the aspen frost range since it was released and always wanted to be able to get it in digital form so when Jessica Sprague released it at the beginning of December I had to buy it straight away.

I have posted quite a few pictures but obviously not one of every variety. I chose three colours for the owls and sparrows and tried to ensure that there were no duplicate colours on each card. The photos aren't very clear as I left it very late making them and didn't realise how bad the photos were until they had already been sent.
