My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

20 June 2011

The Christmas Club - My turn!

Hello everyone, hope you are all well?  Thank you for your good wishes for my Daughter's Summer Fete on Saturday, the weather was really changeable, one minute blue sky and sunshine the next wind and terrential rain! But we only had 2 downpours whilst I was there, which luckily cleared really quickly.

I hate to say it, but I am late again with my Christmas Club card for the Christmas Club!

 It was my turn last fortnight to choose the theme and I chose red, white and green and include a reindeer.

Here are my makes .... yep I made two!

Card Ingredients:

Vintage Papers
Dawn Bibby Designs Festive Rudolph Toppers
Bazzil Basics Cardstock
PM Gems

Card Ingredients:

Papermania Classic Christmas Papers
PM Gems
Bow from Stash

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

  10. Two great cards Claire. Love those reindeers on the first one especially. It is great to see how people interpret the challenges and see such fab cards. I think you are being over critical of your Lili of the Valley card though as I think the colouring looks great. You just get such different results depending which medium you use. I am loving the pencils though :)
    Great to see the sun today..........back to work for me tomorrow :(
