Christmas teddy at Christmas card club

Good morning lovelies! How are you today? I hope you are okay. We are all good and enjoyed the play yesterday - we've got a lot of work to do to get it up and running for October - it certainly gave all involved food for thought. We've got another busy day today - Jujitsu grading time again this morning - I'll be doing my long run  (9and 1/2 miles) whilst Lucy and Penny do that - then its off to my mums for lunch and we need to decorate rocks for the teachers farewell and thankyou presents.

I got a some excellent news on Friday winning the Allsorts challenge with my Fairy card and also getting in the top 5. I also got more good news yesterday - along with my blog buddy Mags - I got to be GDT at Little Claire - very excited about that and looking forward to making some cards to inspire you!!

My blog hop prize from That Craft Place has also been won - its you catherine! If you would like to email me I'll get it out to you ASAP!


Now onto the Christmas card club. I have  a trio of christmas teddy cards - there were more stamps to choose from too! Here they are:


I used distress in Christmas colours to create a background and made all three up in the same way.


This first one uses an LOTV image coloured with spectrum noirs and cut with an Xcut die.


This next one includes an image from Crafty Sentiments as does the final one.


This one is my fave - I love that sweet image!

I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:

Winterwonderlandchristmasblogchallenge - three of three - three cards - delete me if this doesn't count!
sweet stampinsweetstampinchallengeblog - christmas in July

I'll be back at 4 with my craft a scene post - hope to see you then and thanks for dropping by for this post. 

Big Hugs

Rachel xx
