My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

27 August 2011

Christmas Club - Sylvie's Challenge

Evening everyone - very late in blogland tonight as have had a busy day finishing off our newly decorated bedroom - papered the feature wall today and put up the new light fittings - just a few more bits and pieces to do, like put the radiator on the wall and go to Ikea to buy some new drawers and then it's all done.  I have to say i am very pleased with how it's looking.

Anyway onto today's card which is for the Christmas Club where a bunch of us gals get together and make some Christmas cards.  It was Sylvie's turn to host the last challenge and she chose mistletoe.  Now I struggled with this one as obviously it's not a popular image choice is it ..... however flicking through my digi's came across the perfect image.

Card Ingredients:

Digi Stamp Boutique Henry & Zoe Kiss Digi Stamp
Paper Cellar Modern Christmas Papers
Kanban Mirri Card
PM Gems
Greeting taken from remaining strip of paper I cut off card

It's a simple card - that simple I actually forgot to add the stickles to her hat and snow - DOH!  Still I can do that before it gets sent off this Christmas.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:

Crafts 4 Eternity 34 Christmas Projects

Thanks for popping in.


  1. A very funky card Claire, the image is so sweet. Carol x

  2. What a gorgeous card Claire. I am on Christmas mode too. Left it a tad too late last year and ended up selling all the cards I had made for myself when I ran out after a Fair, to take to the next one! Not going to let that happen this year, upto now I have made 23 and counting.....
    I just love Ikea, I used to visit the one 2 hours away from me all the time. It's a few years since I have been but I did place an order online 2 years ago for my Trofast Storage and it's all in my craft room, it's fab stuff, go take a look. Debbiexx
