Christmas Card Club Challenge #4 - Christmas Birds

Hi Crafters,

It's Sunday, where did the weekend go?
It's also time to share my first Christmas card make for our friendly little Christmas Club. We are a group of ladies trying to get ahead for Christmas 2019!
I'm a little behind with that task due to reasons various but I will attempt to catch up throughout the year.

I found this fun little Robin line-up on CraftsUprint.


I added some Gold Satin card stock and Brown Glitter card in my mats and layers for a quick and simple card design.

~~~~~~

This next card was made using a magazine freebie kit, I thought the cute little penguin fitted the theme too. I decided to make a shaker card using some gold snowflakes that I've had in my stash for ages.


Challenges I'd like to enter:
Cute Card Thursday - #569 Wings
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - #501 Christmas, Humorous
CHNC every Saturday - #425 Christmas opt. Use some Green
Winter Wonderland - Feb ATG Christmas


Thanks for popping by today.

Hi Crafters,

Well we've reached the end of this years Christmas Card Club Challenges, what a fabulous year we've had and plenty of Christmas inspiration for you all.

Now on to today's challenge theme which was set by Sylvie.

She'd like to see all your CUTE Christmas creations.



I thought both of these images were adorable.
Lots of fussy cutting and layers with minimal embellishments to allow the image to stand out.

Well that's all from me, we will be taking a break from our Christmas crafting until January 6th 2019. Then we will be back in full force to start all over again for another fun year of Christmas cards!

Passion For Promarkers Mega Christmas Challenge - Hip To Be Square

Hi Crafters,

Well it's time to introduce our Mega Christmas Challenge here at Passion For Promarkers.
Both Design Teams will be inspiring you with their Christmas makes in a SQUARE format over the next few weeks.
This week it is the turn of Team 2 to share their creations and here's mine...


Using my all time favourite Penny Black stamp called Snowy I have coloured him with my trusty Promarkers in shades of brown for his hat and scarf and grey's for his snowy bits :o)
A dash of glitter on his hat completes the image and then some subtle embossing for the background together with various sizes of snowflake die cuts from a Cheery Lynn die. The sentiment is a wooden embellishment which just happened to be the same colour as my glitter card, how lucky was that?

Christmas Card Club Challenge #24 - All Wrapped Up

Hi Crafters,

Our theme this time at the Christmas Card Club is 'All Wrapped Up' or Anything Goes.
As I haven't made any gift bags this year and just concentrated on cards I thought I'd share these fun box cards this time.
All from a magazine freebie set but so cute.




I love how these fold flat for posting but create such a fun display when opened.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #423 ATG
Rudolph Day Challenge - NOV ATG Christmas


Please take a look at the inspirational cards and projects on the other team members blogs, their links are in the tab at the top of my blog.
Well Christmas is approaching very quickly now and I hope you have managed to make a start on your Christmas preparations.

See you soon,

Lorraine
