Fitted in a couple of cards

Managed to fit in a couple of cards yesterday while waiting for a new blade for my ringsaw to arrive in the post. The ringsaw is what I use to cut my glass - it really speeds up the process and helps me get through the quantity of glass I need to make at this time of year (not sensible enough to build up stock throughout the year :-)) but on Friday whilst cutting glass for 3 new angels the blade broke - Aaaargh! The blade is encrusted with diamond chips to easily cut through glass and costs £65 for a replacement!!

So the cards, first one I made with one of my Frosty Bob stamps from Blonde Moments and my new Spellbinders nestability dies to cut the scallop circles and stripy background paper from DCWV Christmas paper pack.
Next one was one of Elzybelles gorgeous Eskimo stamps, Juggling Eskimo, on another scalloped circle, the background was from Papermania Naughty & Nice pack.
Last I used the gorgeous new download Sweet Cheeks from Pink Petticoat to make the Baby's first Christmas card. The backing paper is also from Pink Petticoat.
By the time I'd got these done my blade had arrived and Neil had very kindly made the repair to my ringsaw and it was back to the porch for more stained glass.
