Christmas card 'book'

Well, I've had a few more attempts at photographing the little card book for my eldest son and DIL. Still not very good I'm afraid but it's the best I've come up with yet and as I'm running out of time now it'll have to do. I obviously need to practice a whole lot more!
My DIL likes the little 'cuties', not sure about my son though, but I don't expect he'll take a lot of notice anyway.

Card Details:
* Images by Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar
* Backing papers from DCWV
* Cardstock and embellishments from my stash

I'd like to say a huge 'Thank You' to Wendy and Beryl for passing the 'Fabulous Blog' award on to me, I'm very honoured.

Well I think it's absolutely gorgeous Chrissie - I love your little books. The light is terrible at the moment for taking photos - such a shame as things don't look as good as they actually are in real life.

After the fabulous Christmas card you sent me I can vouch for how good your work is - well as you know it inspired me to splash out on Promarkers. Can't wait for them to arrive!
Have a great Christmas and see you in the New Year. Hey just thought you will be designing for the new blog then - wow - how exciting.
Crikey this is more like an email than a message - I better stop rambling now.

What a fab Christmas Books. I bet DIL will be pleased even if your son doesn't show any interest. Men think cards are for wimps and don't know how much work and effort goes into them. I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Peaceful New Year. Cathy xxxx

This is so adorable and I'm sure will be a keepsake for many years to come. I love the DCWV paper you used --- it is so perfect for these little cuties. I used the same stack for the non-traditional colors.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Smashing work Chrissie. I'm so ashamed I have not been able to visit my fav blogs for what seems ages now - I've just been innundated with work.
Thank you for the lovely Christmas greeting and I would like to return it to you and your family. Catch up with you in 2009. :)

Oh, this is another gorgeous card!
And forgive me for being a bit dim, but how did you make it - perhaps a tutorial is in order?? Or if there's already one maybe you could point me in the right direction.

Merry Christmas to you Chrissie - and your family.
