Oh Oh Is that a Cword card I see?

Yes - THAT time of the year is looming large and I can't put it off any longer.  I know loads of people who make their Christmas cards throughout the year, thus avoiding the mad panic at the end of the year, but I'm not one of them.  If I did try and make a few each month I know I'd just hate the earliest ones and chuck them in the bin and therefore still need to make extras and have the mad panic to get enough made in time.
So it's about this time of the year that my mind turns to Cword cards and I start trying to come up with some ideas.
Now, I think the current sketch on The Sketch File blog might provide a pretty good outline for getting at least some of my cards made, so yesterday I made these two, using the same papers, but twisting the sketch round.

I'm not sure two is enough, but it's a start, eh?

Thanks for looking
