Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and not suffering with a cold as I am, yes it was bound to happen, Alistair shared his cold with me, and I'm feeling miserable, so you will be pleased to hear that this will be a short post.
Thank you for your lovely comments on my last card, and to say hello to Pat who has left a lovely first comment.
Would you believe it's time for us CCC gals to show our new Christmas cards......so sorry!!! I know, I know, most of you will be saying what the ......heck, Christmas has just gone. However, we are a little band of crafters who want to get ahead with the Christmas card making and not have to panic at the last minute, so every two weeks one of us chooses a theme and we all try to come up with something. It's a good way to make sure you have at least 24 cards... is my maths correct!
So, this is the first Challenge of the year and chosen by our stalwart coordinator Margaret, or Duchess as she is known in Blogland, and it's an easy one, Anything Goes;
My first card uses a gorgeous snowflake stencil and Diamond Sparkle Medium from Imagination Crafts, the black card is also from them, and my cute little snow fella is a die given to me by my friend Mrs. Duck, which incidentally came along with bags of spices and a recipe for Aloo Gobi, which I am going to attempt when I feel better.
Now this little number is all made with freebies from a magazine the name of which escapes me for the moment, but there is an igloo embossing folder and a few little cute critters. I decided on the penguins having a snowball fight. I've tried to make a Northern Lights sky with DI and I've made a background with Pixi Powders from Creative Expressions..... I need a bit of practise with them.
Please have a look at what the other ladies make, there are always wonderful cards from them, and if anyone would like to join us, please get in touch with either me or one of the other CCC Ladies and get ahead with it, we would love to see some new folk join us.
Hope you are having a fab weekend.. me well I'm doping up with the old paracetamol and a box of tissues, see you all soon,
