Festive Fun - CCC challenge No 1

Hello, today I am posting a card for our little Christmas Card Club, which we do every second week. Today it is Sylvie's choice and she kindly gave us "Anything Goes".  Probably just as well because my mojo is obviously still enjoying the holiday season and my mind is practically a blank canvas. Unfortunately it is staying blank too!

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

I have made a very simple card using an LOTV topper "Festive Fun" and matted onto an SB Scalloped Circles. The sentiment is Little Claire Designs "Christmas Sentiment" stamp and die cut with SB Lacy Circles The backing paper is from "Special Delivery" pack by Helz Cuppleditch and although it doesn't show in the picture it is nicely glittered. The poinsettias are WOC and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Well, here's hoping my my mojo returns soon!  I received my gorgeous "paddle prize" which I won from Mrs Duck. It includes a beautiful die and if that doesn't give me some inspiration nothing will!! So watch out in the next day or two (or three!). Thank you again Ang.

Hope this finds you all well and creative.

  18. Morning Christine,
    pretty card, love the image and the papers.

  19. Hi Christine,
    what a super card. I love that image and those papers are really fab. Great colour card used and it makes this a real gem of a creation. I thought you said your mojo was still enjoying the holiday break, lol. Now this doesn't seem the case to me. I sure wish I could create something as good when my mojo has a holiday.
    So glad all is sorted with your GC.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  20. A wonderful card Christine even without your mojo! Love the colours. Carol x

  21. I just adore the Christmas light background thanks for sharing with us at CCAYR for the January challenge "Anything Goes"

  22. Oh so cute and love the colour combo along with the excellent image...about my time to do things?? Well I go like a bull at a gate always have, comes from nursing, organizational skills, get all my chores done, visit dad, and craft at night.xxxx

  23. A lovely card to Brighten up a miserable wet day Christine...gorgeous papers


  24. Mojo gone Christine!! You could've fooled me. What a lovely card. I don't normally go for red but this is absolutely gorgeous. God help us mere mortals when your mojo returns ;)
    Love Lea x

  25. Nothing wrong with your mojo at all Christine, this is just so cute and gorgeous!

  26. Delightful. I think your MoJo is still right there with you. Mine seems to have disappeared altogether, along with my brain! (I missed this sorry. Will do better on the next one!) Loved all the bright red and your tiny ribbon border over the larger one, was just so pretty. Loved that background paper too. Great card & one ready for the next holiday which is already getting closer! TFS & Hugs

  27. If that is your mojo gone, then you must craft something absolutely amazing when it is there! I love this - the red makes everything pop, the glittery background paper (and yes I can see the glitter). The images and embellishments are fantastic. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful card with us at CHNC Extra for January

  28. One of my favorite LOTV images. Sometimes we just need to take a break and do what we think is an easy card but to others appears to be as adorable as this one is. Thanks so much for joining us at CCAYR this month. Hope to see you back for our next challenge. Hugs, Carol
