Christmas Card Club - "Snowscene"

Good afternoon all.
The kids have kindly passed on some of their bugs and I woke feeling like I've swallowed a cup of razors, just what I need before Christmas...not!

What lovely weather we've had this last few days...we had a stunning sunset yesterday. On Friday the sale went through for our old house...poor bloke was camped out on the drive for several hours whilst the monies were sorted as he was in the middle of a chain, so glad we were the top!

Gary and his friends are travelling across Australia from Perth to Sydney at the moment, following the coast road. They've just crossed the Nullarbor Plains and have arrived in Ceduna...not sure whether they're sticking to the coast or heading inland from here, don't think they know themselves!

I've been very neglectful of the Christmas Card Club of late...and my stash of cards is wearisome as a result. However I have managed to make one for today when Rita asked for a "Snowscene". This is our last challenge of the year and next year I must try harder! I have got some catch up makes made but need to sort out the photos.

Made with a freebie from a magazine I bought last week which included the embossing folder, stamps and dies. I added some stickles to finish it off.

Yesterday's sunset!

Must get my cards written this afternoon so I can get them in the post....plus start making any extras I need!

  10. Carol, so glad you were able to create this little cutie for the last challenge of 2016. It's just fun & delightful to see these little penguins having fun outside their embossed igloo. Also enjoyed the gorgeous sunset picture. No apologies needed, as you've had a very busy year. One thing I like about the CCC, is everyone understands if Life gets in the way of Craft...which is just as it should be. You've aced this challenge, and I hope you will soon feel better with this 'bug'. Take care, and see you in 2017. Merry Christmas & TFS.

  11. This is a great snow scene, Carol! Those adorable penguins in their posh attire live in a fabulous igloo! They are all set for fun with skates, snowballs, and a sled!! Happy Holidays!! Hugs, Darnell
