CCC: Christmas scene and Happy Birthday to me!

Hello Lovelies - How are you today? I am writing this last night if this makes sense - the reason being it is my birthday today and my two excited little scamps will no doubt have me up early to open my cards - I did tell them not until 8am - but we'll see what happens! I'm taking them tree trekking at Brockhole today - looking forward to it - unlike my birthday which I'm not too fussed about this year! And it would have been Shauns birthday tomorrow - so its going to be a tough couple of days but I will get though this and feel much better on the other side of it! Big girl knickers time xx

So at christmas card club today the theme is a christmas scene - which ordinarily would have filled me with joy - but having so little time I found this quite tough but I did manage to throw a card together for it.


I used stamps from Card -io and papermania (sentiment) and distress ink - mermaid lagoon plus  bottle adirondack and balck archival.  I have more of the same sort of style to show you in tomorro'w post!

Big hugs and have a great day!

  1. Brilliant card Rachel,
    Love you beautiful Christmas Design.

    Been to the area you plan to go for your holiday but not the Resort. I have heard it is a great resort. Antalya is beautiful, also plenty to see and do if you like to get out and about as we do.
    Have a great day

    Happy Birthday, Rachel. I have not been checking the Club board lately as it is officially camping season and my life gets a tad rushed! teehee

Hope that your day was just filled with love, and so glad you had something special planned to enjoy with your family. Our loved ones never leave...they are close by...and always in our hearts. Big hugs Brave lady. TFS & Hugs
