Christmas Critters for Christmas Card Club

Good morning and here we are already at Challenge # 8 for our little club.  Maureen chose the theme and she wants to see Christmas Critters. Now the dictionary definition of critter is " a living creature". My first card certainly shows creatures you would associate with Christmas but perhaps not so for my second card. Well I'm showing a creature, it's Christmas, and it's bit of fun.

Card #1

6" square white base card
 red and blue card from stash
patterned paper - "Home for Christmas" Papermania
Geese toppers/stickers - Rymans
small poinsettias - Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiments - computer generated

The geese are glittery stickers and very old stash which I came across and thought would be ideal for the challenge.

Card # 2  


6" square white base card
papers - "Snow Princess" LOTV
digi image - Eleanor and Pickles from Lacy Sunshine
holly corner dies - Joanna Sheen
sentiment - computer generated
promarkers to colour

I came across this digi image when I was looking for something else on my external hard drive aad thought it might be a bit of fun. Pickles looks like a very grumpy frog. I wonder if Santa didn't bring him everything he wanted?

Hope everybody is staying safe and well.  I'm getting plenty of walking in and now the weather is so good it is even more enjoyable.  I've asked John to get my bike out and give it a going over so I can alternate between cycling and walking.

Anyway take care and enjoy the sunshine.

Two super fab cards for the theme this time. I think we all went a bit off piste and had a bit of fun. We could certainly do with some lighter moments. Keep well and safe. Hugs Mrs A.
