Mini Bethlehem

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge and the theme this week  is 'Christmas'!   Challenge start date is Nov 25th, 2012. I used a Doodle Pantry  digital stamp set  called ' Mini Bethlehem'!   The  set contains coloured and outline images, digital papers and sentiments.   For the above cards I used the pre-coloured image. 

I had printed out  the mini Bethlehem image (2 on the page) and found it too big so I printed out another page with a smaller images,   and I ended up with  four images so decided to use as many as I could., hence the three Christmas cards (which I need anyway) :O)! Three simple cards  and they won't cost extra to mail as each one is 4 1/4 x 51/2 yay!! I used the left over copy  to make the last card dimensional!
