Christmas Card Club Challenge #7 Christmas Candles

Hi Crafters,

It's time to share another Christmas Card for our fortnightly challenge with the theme of
CHRISTMAS CANDLES


 Recipe
Joanna Sheen Die - Flickering Candles
Sentiment & Holly Stamps - Magazine Freebies
Embossed Cardstock - Limetree Crafts

I enjoyed creating this card, I've been waiting to use this lovely candle die for this challenge. I cut it out several times in the different coloured card and pieced them back together using the gold outline. I kept the scalloped square die on the card then inked and stamped the holly around the edge to give a border. A touch of glitter on the edge of the embossed background and my card was done.
Please take a look at the other team members blogs and creations, their links are in my sidebar under the Christmas Card Club tab.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Rudolph Day Challenge - March ATG Christmas
CHNC Every Saturday - #483 ATG Christmas

I hope you are all staying safe inside away from the Virus. It has seemed like a very long week to me. Although I have my craft to keep me busy my mojo has taken a dive and I feel frustrated that I could be using this time to get ahead but it's just not happening.
I will have to venture out to the shops next week as there are no delivery slots to be had from the supermarkets and essential things are running out, then it will be a quick trip to take supplies to my 88yr old mum, a wave through the window and back home again. Thank goodness for the telephone to enable us to keep in touch as she is scared by anything remotely high tech, bless her.
Stay safe everyone and hopefully we will be out the other side of this soon.

Cherry Blossom

Hi Crafters,

What a strange time it is.
I hope you are all keeping safe and hopefully sane while we ride this storm.

It has been a gorgeous week for the weather and lots of people have been getting ahead with gardening jobs so I hear and this has prompted me to share this card today.


Using a rather gorgeous image from one of my Hunkydory Little Books, Creative Expressions Stitched Frame dies and a Cherry Blossom Die I have created this pretty little garden scene.

Stay safe everyone!

Christmas Card Club Challenge #5 Post Box / Mail Box

Hi Crafters,

I seemed to have lots of images in my stash for this weeks challenge so thought it best to get as many cards made a possible :)

These three cards were created using images from Hunkydory.




The second two cards were created using an image I've had on my computer for years, I love it, it's a really old fashioned looking postbox and the 'Dear Santa' letter has been 3D and slotted in to the opening.

There definitely aren't enough hours in my day :)
I will do my best.
