Two Christmas cards

 Hello again,

I've managed to make two Christmas cards still using the scrappy bits of one paper pad from Doodlebug Designs 'north pole' there is maybe enough scraps for another card or two, a few squares I've die-cut in the past and then some narrow strips. 

I am booked in for my first covid vaccine tomorrow, I was not able to book an appointment until early July and then the wait for the two nearest practices offering the jabs was the last few days of October, my local GP clinic finally got offered some of the vaccine for my age group and I was able to bring my appointment forward by one month. With the current lockdown (3months) rules lifting for vaccinated Sydneysiders before our area had access to the vaccine, locals are not happy that tourists will be able to visit our area when we have had less opportunity to have the vaccine. One of the two clinics actually wrote in to the local newspaper that there had been no vaccines offered for three weeks due to the doses being redirected to Sydney. whinging over.... 

Here are my two cards:-

What I used:-
White 17.8x12.6cm card blanks
Doodlebug Design 'north pole' paper pad
CCD quilt die
Oval, circle and scalloped circle dies
Red, grey and green cardstock
Green brad
MFT 'hand-lettered holiday greetings' and 'Hand-lettered Christmas' stamps
Colorbox Ruby ink pad
Clear embossing powder
Adhesives:- DS tape, PVA glue

I would like to enter these cards in:-

Thank you for looking in... 
Have a wonderful week...
