More for Christmas

Mum asked if I could do some cards for my brother and his family for christmas by this weekend as they are coming up to stay and she wanted the cards not to get ruined or squashed in the post. I have done my bro's and sis-in-laws and you will see that one later next week , it's what I've done as a DT card, mum saw it and wanted it, so that one was easy. My nephews were a little harder, one is still in the works so to speak but here is the other. She wanted something traditional but not that the boys 6 and 9 would think of as babyish and similar, so after a chat we decided on sugar nellie mangas. Love these and I was lucky enough to win them from sugar nellie a while back. I did originally think they would make fab teenager cards but as yet hacven't run that by my son but have to say I really enjoyed colouring them in.I used Sakura pens and promarkers and love the shine you get. The santa card I got from a computer fair ages ago and the green paper I think from docrafts. The rub ons were from a rak I think last year and the gold cord from my stash as are the gems. Have to say I'm quite pleased how it's come together, hope mum is too.

I'd like to enter it for the following challenges:-

Charisma cardz- with love at christmas( what could be more love than a gran to grandchild)
One stitch at a time-christmas , modern or traditional( I think this does both modern traditional)
Crafty creations-fantasy and fables
Magical monday-sketch
Paper Sundaes-for the boys
