brown and cream christmas x 5

Good evening all.i hope you are all well.finally have my cards to share with you.
waited ages for my stickles to dry and in the end i bobbed em on top of the radiator to speed em up a litttle.i found it really hard to make them flat cards too, my fingers kept trying to get the foam pads.
very photo heavy post this one, so a big thankyou if you manage to get to the end .lol.
i am entering these cards into the following challenges:
1.moving along with the times challenge - challenge 127 - last minute christmas
2.stampin for the weekend - challenge 22 - christmas

products used for all are:

flexmarkers linen and nutmeg used to add a little shading
stickles stardust
papermania sentiment
crafts too embossing folder

glorious collection - yummy paper and I love just the sepia/brown ink vintage look.

Such a good idea when you are on a roll to make several in the same design. I wish I could do that! :)
I know what you mean about making them flat too, and also waiting for stickles to dry.... most of my blog pics have wet stickles! ;)
