Christmas Card Club # 21 - Carol Singers

Good afternoon to you all. This post is not due until tomorrow but my OSAAT DT card is due then.  I don't like to make two posts on the same day and I'm sure my CCC friends don't mind this.

It was my dear friend Sue P's turn to choose the theme this time, and as you can see her choice was to have Carol Singers.

I am very cross with myself because I have a stamp of Carol Singers - but could I find the blessed thing!! I settled for this very sweet LOTV topper - and as soon as I had finished the card I found my stamp!  Grrrr!! Still that means I need to make another card to feature this stamp now!  The holly and ivy die cuts are from some pale green glitter card from my stash and are a lot more sparkly in real life. I chopped them up to spread them around more evenly. I  used Glamour Dust on the fur and the snow in the image and some soft gold glitter for the lamp. 

Image - Lily of the Valley
Papers - Hot Off The Press
Sentiment - Hot off the press
Pearls - Hobby House
Ivy Corner - Signature Dies from Joanna Sheen
Holly corners - Cheery Lynn

Well  we now have our phone and broadband problems resolved and so hopefully I will be back to more frequent blogging soon. Hope everybody is well. We are enjoying a little sunshine at the moment after pouring rain all morning.

Take care!

I'm glad you settled for that image, Christine, because it's so lovely and just right for Sue's CCC challenge (I'd love to see this too for CHNC Christmas extra for October) x

Christine, I had to smile when I read about your missing image, as I was in the same fix with using the carolers die I intended to use. As I'm seeing some of the cards, I'm remembering other stamps I had that would have fit the theme, but didn't remember having until I saw others' cards! I love what you did with the sweet topper, and your dies, layout & pretty, pretty papers make this one so special. I'm glad you went with this motif, as it's beautiful! TFS & Hugs

Blogger was having a hissy fit earlier and I can't see my comment so will try again. Love that image with the carol singers. I have that paper pad too. There must be something about lanterns this time round as we are all using them! hugs Mrs A.
