Christmas Card Club

The girls have let me join their little club - a Christmas card challenge every fortnight just for fun. You should be able to see a list of our names in my side bar with links but blogger ate it and I'm giving him a day or two to spit it back out before I redo it. If you'd like to join us click on one of our names and we'll tell you all about it or meantime leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.
 This is my card:
This fortnight Margaret has given everyone a recipe: glitter (tick - now everywhere!!) berries (tick), snow (tick), a Christmas tree (tick) and not square (tick) ............. and a giraffe (where the heck did he come from??).
I won Lofty over at Bah! Humbug! last week and couldn't resist putting him on a Christmas card and I never could follow a recipe without adding a little something extra lol
Backing paper is from Bearly Mine, digi tree and snowman are from Crafty Ann's digi shop and have been coloured with promarkers. Lofty and the crown are by Joanna Sheen and have also been coloured with promarkers. The other digital images are from a download called From Around the World. Card is finished with white glitter stuff and a gold star.
Challenges I'm entering:
Bah! Humbug! - snowflakes
Stamp Something - anything goes
Christmas Card Challenges - use a non traditional image

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope enjoy your visit.
