Christmas Card Club

Hello and I hope you are all keeping warm.  We had quite a bit of snow Friday afternoon and overnight so it made for quite a hairy trip for the newspaper.  We are very hilly here and there are two different routes to the next village which is about three miles away. The most direct route is the worst because it it up and down and twisty and twiny - and doesn't get gritted! The other route is a little further but they have a bus from that village and the bus route goes up that very steep hill so it is gritted.  No contest!  But I was glad to get back home!

This post is a full week late.  It is for the Christmas Card Club but last week was such a busy one I missed it!  To make up for it I have made three cards - and very helpful for my stash.  They are all fairly simple and flat because these will be posted.  The theme, chosen by Rachel, is Festive Foliage. I'm sorry to be so late but it was a great challenge Rachel.

My Cards

The first two are made using images from the LOTV Art Pads. The final one is made with an image from my Greeting Card Factory.  This one is very flat indeed - in fact one layer!  I have been experimenting adding different borders to make it look as if there are lots of layers.  I also added the greeting to the layer before printing it out.

Anyway, that's all from me.  Take care.


  1. Three super cards Christine and perfect for Rachel's challenge and your growing stash pile too.
    We had a little bit of snow over night but nothing compared to some, hope yours goes away soon. Stay safe and warm.
