Christmas Card Club - Sentiment as Focus

Looks like we've got the best of the weather today after a very cold miserable week.
Another fortnight has passed and it's time to show a Christmas Card Club creation again. Lorraine set the challenge this time and she asked for A Sentiment as Focus.


I've raided my Christmas bit box to make this card, the cream holly card is recycled from a bought card. The sentiment topper I think came in a Do Crafts bag as did the red holly card.
If you'd like to see the creations of the other girls you'll find the list on my side bar.

Challenges entered:
ABC Christmas Challenge - K for keep it simple
Jingle Belles - Fa La La La
Christmas Card Challenges - sentiment only

After topping up the paddling pool on Sunday night I had to dive for the winter woollies again on Monday afternoon and turn the heating on again on Tuesday. So it was me doing all the skipping, to keep warm!

  9. Fabulous card Carol - so perfectly matched, love the holly. Thanks for coming to play in the Snippets Playground on such a great day - we're recording it all. I'm laughing here 'cos you must have topped up the paddling pool up with fresh water if you're gonna dive into it - so sorry for doubting you :) Apologies, and help yourself to a little bit of Jubilee cake over in the corner.
