Christmas Card Club "Christmas Carols"

Good morning all.

Men....what is it with them! Hubby has an appointment this Wednesday at the Ariel Motors factory, so why did he tell me it was on Tuesday!! I've had hotels and everything booked around him and found out on Friday night that he'd given me the wrong date grrr. We left home yesterday and spent the night at Trentham and will be heading to Dorset today for two nights...then to hubby's Aunty for two nights before heading up to Tetbury on Thursday for our trip round Highgrove on Friday.

It's that time again! Us girls from the Christmas Card Club are back to show our wares. Rita gave us the theme of "Christmas Carols" this time.

I opted to use my "Oh Holy Night" die by Die'Sire from Crafter's Companion as this is my favourite Carol. I used navy blue card and layered it up on to white card and finished off with some stickles to give some sparkle.

You'll find a list of the girls on my sidebar if you'd like to see their interpretation of the theme...I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

  7. oh Carol I can resonate with you, after booking flights and hotel to go to London next month, Alistair swore blind it was such and such a date, had it in his diary, not what he had told me in the first place, guess who had put the wrong date in the diary. I was right all along but what a panic, as you say men!.....
    Now to your card, just beautiful, it's a lovely die and love it in the dark card, perfect for the challenge, Kate x
