Christmas Card Club Challenge #16 - Christmas Activities

Hi Crafters,

Two weeks have gone by and it's time to share some Christmas cards for our Christmas Card Club Challenge.

The theme this week really made me get my thinking cap on regarding what relevant things I had in my stash to go along with Maureen's choice...although we have the option of Anything Goes now too.

(Sleigh, Sled, Ski's)

I decided to make a few of the same design as my pile of Christmas cards needed filling out I thought.
These were created using some gold glittery papers from a Dovecrafts paper pad called 'Time To Sparkle' and some fabulous shaped gold ribbon featuring the sleigh and trees. The sentiment is an Apple Blossom Die.
There are 4 pictured here but I made 8! and still have plenty of that gorgeous ribbon left :o)

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Rudolph Day Challenge - July/August Challenge
Christmas With The Cuties - #18 Add Some Sparkle
CHNC Every Saturday - #397 ATG Christmas
Fab n Funky - #404 Christmas in July

Well, how on earth did it get to be August already?!
I usually start to sell my Christmas cards on my stall from next month but I don't feel ready at all.
How are your festive cards coming along?
Please take a look at the rest of our groups cards, the links to their blogs are in the tab at the top of my blog.

Thanks for visiting, it's great to see you here.

These are great Lorraine and the backing papers so effective giving a snowy feel, I actually thought you had done some inking and splattering.
