Christmas Card Club - "Poinsettia or Christmas Greenery"

Good morning all.

It's Christmas Card Club time once more and this week Mary has asked us to show her our "Poinsettias or Christmas Greenery". I managed a quick card last night as it's been a busy week birthday card wise with my Mum 85 and a great niece one today and my son in law later in the week!


Using a cute stamp from Wild Rose Studio coloured with promarkers...it's so long since I coloured anything I've forgotten how! Dies are from Wplus9.

Christmas Card Club - "Animals at Christmas"

Good morning all.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter and hoping the weather isn't dampening the holiday weekend too much for you. The light evenings this last week have been lovely and it's certainly starting to feel more like spring, especially in the garden.

"Animals at Christmas" is the theme set by the lovely Kate this week over at our little Christmas Card Club.

I managed to make a quick couple of simple ones last night. Spent the week getting the house cleaned thinking we were going to have visitors today but found they'd gone home early yesterday due to the weather!


Card and topper from The Works, die from WPlus9.


Card and decoupage topper from The Works, tag die from Die-namics, tree and bow from my stash.

Christmas Card Club - "Christmas Flowers"

Good morning all.

"Christmas Flowers" has been set as the theme for our little Christmas Card Club this week by the lovely Rachel. One quick decoupage card from me this time as I have my Mum staying and didn't get myself organised before she came.


Decoupage from Joanna Sheen which has been in my stash for many a year! Dies from Wplus9 and Spellbinders.

Christmas Card Club - "Robins"

Good morning all.

Hope everyone is warm and dry in this wintery weather. We had about a foot of snow but it drifted badly off the field above us and there were 6/7 foot snow drifts filling about half a mile of road down into town. We were cut off for the best part of two days...which wouldn't have mattered except I badly needed a prescription picked up so eldest had to battle his way in on foot, about a four mile round trip!

Mrs A set this weeks theme over at the Christmas Card Club and she'd like to see a "a Robin or more". We've had a few of them in the garden and I have a few photos I intend to use for family cards but haven't got around to getting them done yet. So here are half a dozen little cards to add to my stash.


Stamp is from a magazine freebie, coloured with promarkers. Dies are from Spellbinders. A very simple design which was easy to batch make.

Christmas Card Club - "Reindeer and/or Friends"

Good morning all.

Zoe has set the theme for this weeks Christmas Card Club and she's asked to see "Reindeers and/or Friends". After my photography workshop was cancelled two weeks ago I spent some time in the craft room getting ahead of myself! Here's four I made for this challenge.


Stamps from Creative Expressions, a very simple OLC.


The embossing folder and stamps were a magazine freebie last year which I didn't get around to using...diecut using a Spellbinders die.


For these two I used a stamp from Penny Black and the die is from Spellbinders, finished with a little stickles.

Christmas Card Club - "Angels or Fairies"

Good morning all.

Margaret has set us the theme of "Angels or Fairies" this week at the Christmas Card Club. Four very quick cards from me...I'm doing a couple of photography workshops this weekend and having been ill last weekend these are very last minute on Friday evening!

Update...workshop was postponed due to rain, thick cloud and generally lousy weather, hopefully today is going to turn out better.


Using stamps from La Blanche...the first design is one layer.


This second design uses a die from Wplus9, stamp is also from La Blanche. I do love these stamps, although they're quite large they always stamp perfectly.

Christmas Card Club - "Christmas Baking"

Good morning all.

The lovely Maureen set the theme of "Christmas Baking" this week at our little Christmas Card Club. I didn't have much stash to use for this challenge but managed to find a Lawn Fawn set which I hadn't yet opened!


Stamps and dies all from Lawn Fawn except the large mat which is from Spellbinders.
