Cheeky cookie cutter Christmas cards

Today was the last day of term at the school where I work.  Leading up to the end of term there have been carol concerts, a visit to the pantomime, play performances and parties. Lots of fun and excitement.  For my Christmas card to the children I work with I couldn't resist using the cute Cookie Cutter Christmas stamps again.  That gingerbread man has such a cheeky expression and looks as if mischief is on the cards.
The bold Merry Medly background was stamped directly onto the card to make a dramatic statement.
To go with the cards there were some reindeer treats.  Tiny boxes of tictacs disguised as Rudolf.  He was stamped with Early Espresso ink and then the antlers were filled in using an aqua painter (the red nose is from some retired pop pom ribbon that was just perfect for noses, but glimmer paper looks good too!).  They look quite impressive lined up and ready to go.
Today is also the last day for posting second class stamped post to arrive in time for Christmas.  Most of my cards are now posted or hand delivered.  Yay!  Sending a Christmas message in a hand made card is sending love or a hug in the post.  I'm always so pleased when I'm told that my cards are well received and appreciated.  It gives me a warm feeling inside and a big smile on my face!  I have a small number of cards left to deliver - the last day for posting first class stamped mail is tomorrow (21st December).
Hurry!  Don't delay!  Make sure you send all your Christmas messages in time for them to arrive for Christmas.  

Have a Happy Christmas.  Hope you get some time to craft aswell as celebrate,
