Christmas Card Club Challenge # 24 - The Holly and The Ivy

Hi Crafters,

How is everyone? 
It's been so busy here with family, craft fairs and getting over the lurgy that my hubby kindly shared with me that I'm afraid I haven't been able to visit you all this week but hopefully next week I can remedy that.
So on to why I am here today...
Christmas Card Club.
It is almost another year over and we are at challenge number 24 which was Asha's turn to choose the theme of 'The Holly and The Ivy'
I could only find an image with holly in it but I'm sure that will be ok.

Craft Creations Topper
Papermania Christmas papers
Memory Box Frame Die
Cheery Lynn Doily Die
Spellbinders Banner Dies

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Papertake Weekly - Take Your Pick - Red & Green
Fab & Funky - Christmas

Thanks for popping in today, I hope you enjoyed seeing my Christmas cards.
I will be back tomorrow for my DT post at 613 Avenue Create.

See you then,

Lorraine, I love this card. I have a real soft spot for vintage Christmas images and the one you have chosen here is truly beautiful. You have put everything together so perfectly too - gorgeous card.

Love the festive colours here! You did a great take on the Holly and Ivy theme. Your card is beautiful as always.

I am late as always. Only been posting my Rudolph Days posts for the last couple of months, and only using cards I had made or made at Stamp Club.

If all goes well, plan to be back at Club in full force, in the New Year.

Any of your last three posts could be entered in the November Rudolph Days Challenge. Would love to see you there.

Lovely image, and wonderful layers too. (I had trouble with the ivy & holly together!) Love the beautiful skates decorated with the festive floral bouquet, and wonderful idea to frame with the pretty die. Lots of pretty papers & a great design layout. Hope you're feeling much better now. Have a great week. TFS & Hugs
