Christmas Card Club - "Cute Christmas"

Good morning all and Happy Mother's Day, I hope you're all being spoilt.

Thank you for all your kind words this week and to those who've sent cards...they do help.
Thank goodness this week is nearly over though...my youngest sister lost her father in law the day after I lost mine so things didn't get any better. However Gary is arriving home this evening so I will have all my brood under one roof again :), not that I wanted him home under these circumstances.

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, it was Lorraine's turn to choose the theme this time and she set the theme "Cute Christmas". Luckily I was ahead of myself with my makes!!

Decoupaged card kit is from Create and Craft part of a package Mum bought me for Christmas at a local craft shop.

Finished inside and I'll probably use it for one of the neighbours.

You'll find the rest of the girls listed on my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.
