Christmas Card Club

Just made it on time, had a last minute week in Lincolnshire then added an extra day to miss the Saturday traffic so just got home today. Stayed in a lovely newly converted haybarn near Market Rasen and would highly recommend the complex of cottages. It's been a very quiet week following up some family history, antique hunting and doing a spot of sightseeing (and craft shopping!). We've been fairly lucky with the weather too, very warm all week and only got wet once or twice.
Enough of holidays and over to cards, luckily this card was already made although it wasn't intended for Kerry's challenge of a robin, holly and optional postbox it does fit the bill.

Using a decoupage kit from C&C the card is finished with a tartan bow, some pearls and a peel off sentiment.
The club is just for fun and details of those involved are on my sidebar, do pop over and see the girls I'm sure they'll be delighted. If you fancy joining in get in touch, we make a card once a fortnight - no pressure and it's amazing how soon the box begins to fill.

Challenges entered:
Fab's big Christmas - use a CD or kit
Saturday Challenge - Christmas
Christmas Card Challenge - Christmas cheer
