Christmas Card Club - "Anything Goes"

Good morning all and wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. If everything has gone to plan I'll hopefully be sunning myself on a beach in the Canaries now 😎. A sneaky week away before I have to turn up for Jury Duty.

I know last Christmas is just over with but if I don't start my cards now I'll never be ready for next Christmas!! It's so much less hassle and stress making them throughout the year and since adding the inserts as I make them has become second nature I don't have that "groan" day just before writing all the cards in December.

Margaret has given us an easy "Anything Goes" for our first Christmas Card Club theme and here is my offering.

Topper from LOTV, die cut and matted; backing paper from Papermania; icicle die from Marianne Design and sentiment die is from the new CUTplorations range at STAMPlorations.

If you'd like to see what the other girls made you'll find the list on my side bar.

I'll be back later with my inspiration for the Mixed Media Challenge at STAMPlorations.
