Santa's Sleigh at Christmas Card Club

 Good morning and here I am with a couple of cards for our Christmas Card Club. Kate is hosting the challenge this time and would like to see Santa's Sleigh.  We always have the option to use Anything Goes if we don't have anything suitable for the current challenge. However, Anything Goes doesn't really suit me - I find I procrastinate too much and can never make my mind up!

Card # 1

Card # 2


Two quite simple cards but they fit the brief.  

I hope this finds you all well.

Four Legged Friends for IAAS

 Good morning. It's time for another challenge at International Art and Soul  the theme of which is "Four Legged Friends" and hosted by Jane.

My Card

A very simple card but with a sweet image. Who could resist these sweet little kittens? I'm a dog lover rather than cats but kittens are gorgeous. Unfortunately my husband has asthma and as soon as gets anywhere near felines it sets it off.

Why not pop across to the blog and see the cards from my team mates?

Enjoy the rest of your day and hope it is a good one.

Let it Snow for Christmas Card Club

 Time once again for our Christmas Card Club to show our cards and the theme is "Let it Snow" chosen by Rachel. These two weeks pass so quickly.

I hope this finds you all well.

My Card

I printed an image from my Card Factory Deluxe programme and put it into the inside of a 6" square base card. I then die cut a square aperture from the front using SB Classic Squares Large  and added some Snowstorm Acetate from my stash. I added red poinsettias in the corners with leaves from the Leaf Flourish Strip, which I think is a Britannia die.  I stamped the snowflakes around the borders from Hero Arts "Fluttering Snowflakes" with Versamark and embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder. The "Let It Snow" wording I found in my box of die cuts and I have a feeling it is from Brittania dies too.

Card #2

This is a 6" square base card matted with red card  and patterned paper from LOTV. The sheep is from a recycled Christmas card a few years ago but it makes me smile. A few diecut snowflakes and a Sue Wilson sentiment  and job done.

Take care and enjoy your day.
