Christmas Card Club Challenge # 1 "Festive Food"

Good morning. Well it is time for our very first challenge this year and Dutchess aka Margaret, who is our leader and co-ordinator,  has chosen the theme this time.  Her choice is Festive Food. I bought this image from Pink Gem to use for my last years' Christmas cards - but  didn't get round to using it.  Anyway, it has come in very useful now.

I would just like to say to Margaret that we really appreciate all she does to keep this little club going!

My card is not actually due until tomorrow but since I always have another DT card due on the same day I tend  post this one a day early.  I do hope you will pop back tomorrow and check out what the other girls have made.  You will find their blogs in my side bar.

My Card




This is a very simple card.  I used a 6" square base card and printed the image off to fit and raised a couple of pieces to give the card a bit of interest.

I know we always say this but time is really flying. Already it is January 9th - and this is only my second post.  I'll have to get cracking!

I do hope this finds you all well and not suffering from any of the viral illnesses that are doing the rounds.

Take care.

  14. Wonderful card, Christine. I am sorry that I was not participating for so long. I plan to make up for lost time this year.
    I am feeling so much better now...my medication seems to finally be the right adjustment! Plan to spend lots of time in the craft room.
