Christmas Card Club # 11 - Gifts

Good morning friends and fellow bloggers.  Thanks for dropping by again today.  I cannot believe that another two weeks have gone and it is time for another card for our little group.This time it was Zoe's turn to choose and she asked us to make a card with gifts.  Now that seems fairly simple you would have thought.  How wrong can you be!  I have been right through my stock of Christmas stamps - fairly considerable- and my Christmas digi images and found nothing.  Fortunately I remembered my LOTV coloured Art Pad and found this image which has some Christmas presents on, and a sentiment stamp with some gifts on too.  Phew!  Saved!

My Card

6 inch square white card base
Backing papers - Papermania "Home for Christmas" 
Sentiment stamp - Little Claire's  Christmas Sentiments
Flowers and leaves from my stash box - Brittania roses and rose leaves
Pearls from Stash 

I just needed to add some glitter and it was done.  So that's another one for my steadily growing Christmas card stash.  If you would like to see what the rest of the girls have made you will find their links in my right side bar.

Well it looks as if we might have a reasonable Bank Holiday weekend - I said that very quietly ..... JIC!!! Hope you all have a good time whatever you have planned.

Oh this is just cute. How many times these adorable LOTV images save the day. Beautiful paper to enhance this sweet image, along with the lovely embellies that turned the topper into a wonderful card. I was in the same state as you described...just knowing I had some stamps. (Well, I probl'y do, and couldn't find them!) Your card is just so very pretty. Well done. TFS & Hugs
