Christmas Card Club - a cute Christmas

Morning lovelies! How are you? I'm good and feeling very happy after a lovely day out at Port Sunlight Yesterday! I managed to see my lovely friends Anne and Mo - and went over to see Linda and Sue demonstrating at Imagination Crafts:

Photo: at port sunlight. look who i bumped into! lovely to see you linda and sue, anne and mo. lovely day with my lovely mum xc

Sorry the pictures a bit blurry - mum had trouble using the camera on my phone - lol!!!! We did have a great time - blimey - I do look a mess - still nevermind! A happy mess lol!!!!

Here's my goodies:


As you can probably see I got some clarity stencils, some imagination crafts goodies, some lavinia stamps and some crafty individuals stamps. I also got a WOW mould for shabby roses, some grunge paste and a cosmic shimmer mister. The lovely anne also gave me some feet that she had bought! What a lovely lady!! Thankyou to my lovely hubby for giving my girls some pennies to give me to spend at the show - what a lucky lady I am!


Its my first posting today for the Christmas card Club - I joined to try and help make it better preparing for Christmas - I hope to do more than one card usually - but this time i only managed to do one. Its another card in a box - so much fun - I'm doing these with my ladies tomorrow!!! My last one was super lucky too and won over at PTW where I got some gorgeous lace from the Ribbon Girl xx Thankyou xx


I used distress to create the background papers and the images are from a pad by trymcraft.


Love those little gingerbread men - they're mounted on acetate and bob around quite nicely!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CHNCcraftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge2: Monthly challenge March

Hope you have a wonderful Mothers Day - I think we're off to the swimming baths! Exciting stuff! Big Hugs to you and thanks for visiting.

Rachel xx
