Christmas Card Club

Good morning.  Another two weeks have rolled around and it's time for our little club to show their cards.  This time Mrs A chose the theme and she is looking to see either polar bears or teddy bears.  I'm still not feeling 100% and I haven't done any crafting but I didn't want to miss out.

My Card


5" x 7" red base card
red and white cardstock for matting and layering - stash
image - Greeting Card Factory Deluxe 
poinsettia and leaf sprays - Creative Expressions

This card is made up entirely from stuff that was already in my stash.  I must have intended to use the card at some point and didn't, so it was all ready and waiting for topper.  That too had been printed off and just waiting to be used, as were the poinsettia set.  It was a very quick move to just add the topper and flower and here it is. And of course I added the obligatory glitter to Santa's jacket.  I  really love this image.  I will probably add a sentiment at some stage.

Hope you are all well but if not get well soon.  And I have just heard that a dear blog friend has just lost her husband very suddenly so healing thoughts and prayers wing their way to her and her family.

This card is too sweet! I need to join a Christmas Club. I start out with good intentions every year to make a card a week, but I never do!

Another beauty! This is a great image and the addition of the poinsettia is perfect. Looks good with the flowers on the teddy Santa image.

Hope you are keeping well. We are having a bit of much needed rain for the last week or so. The gardens and flowers really needed it!
