Black and white plus 1 at Christmas card Club

Good morning lovelies! how are you today? We are all good and very excited to be going to two parties today. We have a 6th birthday party this morning - Connie's - she's the little girl the cow card was for. Then this afternoon we have a mad hatters tea party to celebrate Alice's 18th birthday. I'll show you her card tomorrow - and some cakes I'm taking down there. Alice is very grateful to be with us after she had a bad riding accident at the age of 14 - she had to be airlifted by the air ambulance and her party is a bit of a fundraiser for them as well as a party for her! A worthy cause indeed!

Onto todays makes - its Karen's choice today at Christmas Card Club. The theme is black and white plus 1 - well I was very undecided so I made three different versions of the same card!


I found it hard to decide whether to use red, blue or gold and my +1.


The stamps were a freebie on a magazine last year - this is the first time I've used them.


I think the gold is my favourite - all of the cards were made by stamping with versamark then adding wow powders and heat setting.

I'd like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Thats Crafty thatscraftychallenges- black and white plus a splash
Wow wowembossingpowder- metal (the gold one)
crafty catz craftycatzweeklychallenge- AG

Hope you have a great Saturday! Big hugs to you! Thanks for dropping by and for any comments you choose to leave!
