Christmas Card Club "Nativity Scene"

Good morning all. A quick post before I disappear on my jollies. 

Several weeks ago I went to the memory stick I store all my Craft Artist layouts on and found it was blank...cue panic!! Hunted through my EHD and they weren't saved on there either...by this time I was totally gutted - I did have Jpegs of all the pages I had shown on my blog but these all have my signature on them. Last week when passing the local computer shop I popped in to ask whether there was any chance of recovering data from the stick and they said they would try...this morning I popped back to see how they'd got on and they'd managed to recover all my files....it was such a relief. Guess who'll be keeping backups of everything from now on!!!

I've finally got around to making my card for the Christmas Card Challenge which was due on the 1st June!! It was Sue J's turn to pick the theme and she asked us for a "Nativity Scene".

I treated myself to some of the Die'sire Christmas templates from Crafter's Companion...layered up with an added sentiment et voila a very quick card!

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