Xmas and another Hybrid card

Morning guys well after all the rain we had yesterday the sun is out this morning lovely and warm too,just hope it continues into the weekend.
Well as you can see I have been playing with my blog header again he he,wish I could get it the full length on my blog,anyone know how to increase the size?
Any way the steam punk page I made I decided to print it out and make a card with it,so here it is,
The Backing paper is Prima Botanical,the card that I have matted and layered is from my didgi programme.  Then I have made an tiny envelope and added some bits and pieces from my stash to create a card including 2 old buttons,and a tiny peg.

Next I have made this simple xmas card,just want to try and make one a week at least so I am not behind like I was last year making them on xmas eve.
So here it is

Card is from Hunky Dory oh there stuff is amazing the quality is outstanding,then I have just simply added some ribbon,and decoupaged 2 of the baubles then added some ribbon.
So there you go my 2 creations for today,I also would like to welcome Beryl,k and Theresa to my list of followers thanks guys always makes my day when I see more crafters following me.  So Thank you both.

Hi Cheryl love both of your cards. Lovely colours. I wish I could try and make some Chistmas cards simple and nice like your one. Love the way you have managed to change your blog head I tried and it took me ages to get it back after I mucked it up!!! Hugs Jo xxx

Hi Cheryl,
Love your cards and the new header. I think if you want to make it bigger you have to make the width 650pxels. At least that's how I do mine!
Lots of love xx
