Christmas Card Club - "Card based on a Christmas Carol"

Good morning all.

Sorry I'm largely absent at the moment, there don't seem to be enough hours in the day. The wedding invites are almost there and most of the organisation for the day is in hand but the date is rapidly catching up on us!! I also seem to have a never ending stream of birthdays and anniversaries over the next few weeks and another new arrival due next month...best get my butt into gear!!

It doesn't seem like two weeks since our last outing at the Christmas Card Club but the schedule says it is! This week Christine has asked us to "base our cards on a Christmas Carol".

A root through some very old stock produced this topper from (I think) Kanban which simply matted and layered on some vellum and gold mirri makes a very simple DL card. It evokes several Carols...While Shepherds watched, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, Away in a Manager, Once in Royal David's City but I'm going with my absolute favourite Oh Holy Night.

If you'd like to see what the other girl's have produced you'll find their links on my sidebar.


  1. I love how many carols you managed to find in your image but I agree with your favourite one because it is mine too. I think somebody actually steals hours from the day - maybe even days from the week - because like you I'm finding it hard to keep on top of everything right now. So much going on! Ah well that's the way it goes sometimes. Thanks for your lovely card in the challenge. Christine x

  2. Love your card Carol. Such a beautiful scene. Hugs Rita xxx
