CCC: two or more patterned papers

Morning all! Hope you are feeling good. Its Christmas card Club again today and this time the theme is two or more patterned papers - my mum went with the theme but I went with anything goes - I was desperate to use the new sprout stamps from hobby art and this is what I made ...

They are just such a fun set - I adore them! Who wouldn't love a sprout for Christmas???? heehee I know!

Mums cards cover this fortnights theme - here they are ....

On this one she used Sara Davies papers and I think they are first edition dies....

and this one uses the TH tattered poinsettia die and papers from not sure but it might be first edition. My mum did tell me but I deleted the email!

Lucy and I had a great time on Friday - I took her to her first concert - Ed Sheeran at Roundhay park in was a great night ..a bit soggy! But Ed was amazing!!!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
