Carol Singers for the Christmas Card Club

Good morning to you all and hope this finds you well.  Gosh we have had some strange weather over the last week.  Lots of rain and on Wednesday high winds.  I really hate wind!  It is so powerful and can be so destructive. We woke up on Thursday morning to find a huge limb had been torn off the large apple tree in the hedge and was right across the lawn. It was so big it looked like a small tree. Ah well, more wood for the fire I guess, but it left quite a mess in its wake.

It's time for another card for our little club and this time Margaret, aka GranMargaret, asked us to show Carol Singers on our cards. So I managed two cards this time.

Card # 1

6" square card base from Hobbycraft cardstock
Image - Singing Snowmen - Pink Gem designs
vellum snowflakes and gems from stash

Pink Gem Designs are so easy to put together  if you are in a hurry - or Mr Mojo has gone walkabout!!

Card # 2

7" square card - Anna Marie Designs
teal adorable scorable - Hunkydory
patterned paper - digi paper from ages ago so unknown 
toppers - Singing Mice from Paper Creator
snowflake - Spellbinders Create a Flake

These mice really make me smile.This is a great set from Paper Creator because there are so many papers and images and toppers.

 I had initially intended to use an LOTV topper for one of my cards and I actually die cut it from one of the art pads - and then it just disappeared!!  I have no idea what happened to it.  There are two toppers on the page and they are both simply nowhere to be found.  I have checked my waste bin but not there.  No doubt I will find them in some stupid place!  Luckily Pink Gem came to the rescue!

Hope you have a good weekend.

Take care.
