Last of my Christmas cards for 2013 and a few of the Top 100

Hello everyone, here are the last 4 of my Christmas cards for 2013 which i was surprised when I counted was 40 in total x 6 ish of each ...= 240 cards ..!!!  no they aren't all made up yet just ready cut coloured ready for building..I'm having to be really organised as the final move into my New studio is finally happening this week end and i wanted the makings all cards sorted so i can carry on easily once finally in there, without rumaging in every box trying to find things again ....  having all the things i need to finish them all together in one area  should be better practise.... well that's the plan....tonight's 4 then is Robin on a post, Holly from 2011 and frosty... Oh and sorry for the brief discriptions I was having trouble loading things last night hope I have better luck tonight !!! ... 

 There is a combination of Penny Black stamps.3500K Winter bough  for the background using pearlesent ivy ink pad and 3015F 'from To' for the greeting with the Robin on a post Decoupage Stamp, coloured with Copics and layered, adding a touch of Sparkle detail wand to the border here and there,  I've also added it to the background of the image as if the ground was frosty, wrapped the ribbon and wire to finish.
 Same but different greetings....
 Holly Decoupage Stamp used here for a friend 's Wife.... yup youv'e guessed it her name is Holly, and I have to come up with something different each year....coloured with copics and have added gold detail sparkle to all the dots and centers of the berries and leaves  ,Back ground was stamped with a swirl stamp and encore Gold ink pad edging with ink pad. the greetings die cut using the oval nesties, ribbon wrap and wire to finish.
Another version of frosty coloured in soft tones of lilac and ice blues detail sparkle to add highlights on sparkles in the border and edging all greetings, ribbon wrap and bow to finish....

And just before I go here are  3 from the top 100 using the Snowflaky Flurry background Stencil.
 No 36,Using three colours silver Jade and Lavender Sparkle medium, diagonally across the white card in one go.... good one for doing lots at the same time card....once dry mounted onto silver card then lilac adding the wire and bow one one layer greeting stamped onto glossy white card with brilliance pearlesent purple.
 No 38, This was was on acetate using silver sparkle medium and black glossy card to back, border punch to hide the attachments  on silver sparkle paper/card bow and wire to finish, through all layers on the side, any greeting could be used here or even a winter birthday card.
 No39, Again on acetate with Gold sparkle medium cream and gold layers of card , border punched and ribbon wrapped to hide fixings, this would be lovely for a winter anniversary card
