Black and White Xmas cards

Good Sunday to you!
Yeps, I keep working on my Christimas cards - 3, 4, 5 a day maybe, different designs, different colours... I seem to get easily tired of repeating the same over and over so I try to come up with quick, clean and simple yet effective and varied designs and cards every day.
In the last 3 days I have managed to finish over 20 Christmas cards, not bad :-) One of the finished sets was these Black and White ones. Unusual, I know, but why not? Black and white happens to be one of my favourite colour combinations. And it does not always have to be red and green for Xmas, right? I actually quite like them.
So here it is, another batch of Christmas cards, which I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Annabelle Stamps - Black and White
Crazy Amigo - Black and White
Stampin Royalty - Ribbons
Sarah Hurley - Xmas cards with no red or green
Oh Alice - Chessboard (b&w, rows of images)
Meljens - Anything goes
Dottie's World - Xmas Anything (please see their page for the chance to win fabulous candy: a gorgeous kit from Bo Bunny with 18 12" x 12" sheets of premium quality double-sided designer paper, including journalling card paper, and one 12" x 12" sheet of coordinating cardstock stickers! You have til 7th November to enter!)

The backing black and white Christmas paper in my card is a free download from Docrafts; black ribbon and black cardstock from my own stash; sentiment created in Word, mounted on 3D pads; Circle Nestabilities; white pen.
