CCC -Feature A Creature

Good morning!  I have scheduled my post because by the time most of you read this I should be out cycling or at least on my way to Cheltenham if you are an early bird.  Yes, today is the day of the Cotswold Bike Ride.  Fortunately it is a circular route starting and finishing at Cheltenham Racecourse and covering 40 miles in the meantime - and a hilly route to boot!  I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the weather stays dry. According to the forecast rain isn't due till later in the afternoon - if you can believe that!!!

My Card



Well I have another card for the Christmas Card Club today, and this time it was Hazel's choice to "Feature A Creature". I had planned to use a polar bear image that I have, but I have had such a busy week that in the end I went with this "Me To You" die cut decoupage for a quick option. I used Glamour Dust on his cap and  for the tinsel around his chair. The backing papers are "Winter Wonderland" and matted onto jade "Gemstones Pearlescent"   card stock.  The snowflakes are SB Create A Flake 4 and I added a few gems from my stash. I am trying to keep the majority of my Christmas cards fairly flat so that I don't have extra postage to pay. For that reason I kept the layers to a minimum and used 1mm foam pads just to give a little lift.

Well hopefully I will have a hop around your blogs later - unless I am totally shattered! LOL!

Love and hugs from Christine xx
