About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Christmas Card club - Christmas trees

It was my turn to pick the theme for the Christmas Card club this week and I picked Christmas trees.

I have used 2 papers, precoloured digi and elements from Polkadoodles Here Comes Christmas CD.  Sentiment from Create with TLC.

If you would like to see the cards made by others in the Christmas card club their names are listed on the left side bar.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

12 months of Christmas cards link up - anything goes - optional theme ornaments

Christmas cards all year round July challenge - Dots and Stripes

Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas card challenge 237 - deck the halls

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything goes with pattern paper

Digi Choosday - Christmas in July

Inspiration Destination - anything goes

Word Art Wednesday 191 - anything family friendly with an encouraging or uplifting verse.
