My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

24 April 2011

The Christmas Club - Keryn's Challenge

Afternoon everyone - just chilling in the conservatory after eating my Sunday roast and catching up in Blogland.  Mark is busy DIYing again, but I'm trying to rest my knee as for the last couple of days I have had severe shooting pains in it again when I go up and down stairs or try to sit down - it's been just over 6 months since my op and all has been well and now suddenly I feel I'm back to square 1, so I am going to see how it goes over the next few days .... it maybe a visit back to the docs/hospital!! :O(

So last fortnight saw the turn of Keryn for our Christmas Club challenge and she gave us a fab challenge, to choose 3 items from a grid - I chose Penguins, Red & Ribbon and here's my card - it's a very quick make.

Card Ingredients:-

Dawn Bibby The Wonder Of Christmas Die Cuts & Cardstock
American Crafts Ribbon
PM Gems

This fortnight sees the turn of Sylvie and she has set us a challenge to use pink, white and one other colour.

For a list of all the members in our Christmas Club, see my sidebar.

Thanks for popping in.  I hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend.  The weather here is not as nice today, no sunshine, but its still nice and warm.
