Christmas Card Club - "Gnomes, Pixies or Elves"

Good morning all and a Happy New Year.

Can't believe how long it is since my last post...my computer went haywire with a Windows update and took forever to make it usable again...by which time I was way behind with all my Christmas preparations! However Santa did bring a new Surface Pro so I now have back up.

Our first challenge of the year at the Christmas Card club has been set by the lovely Margaret and she's asked to see "Gnomes, Pixies or Elves". This year we have decided that Anything Goes is acceptable if you don't have anything suitable to use for the challenge theme, so this week I have gone with that.

A dozen very simple cards...one layer, no insert. I found these little 33/4" cards when I was making last minute cards in December so I thought I'd use some more of them up.
Snowman and snowflake stamps are from Anita, sentiment is from Woodware and I've used one from Clearly Besotted inside.

Having somewhat lost my mojo of late I have to say I quite enjoyed the forage into the craftroom to make these. I do need to have a good sort out though!

If you'd like to see what the other girls made you'll find their links on my sidebar.

  6. Well that's certainly a goodly number to start the New Year with. Had to have updates done on my computer and now it is running 10 times slower. Grr. Hugs Mrs A.

  9. Hello Carol, I'd checked earlier but didn't see a more recent post. Good to hear from you, and don't worry about being MIA. I was for most of the year too. Life happens. Glad you got the surface pro. I hear lots of people saying they got that, and I'm not even sure I know exactly what it is! Love your blue & white cards. They are adorable, and look so frosty. Lucky find for you, and I like this idea, that if you don't have the appropriately themed supplies for the challenge, you can do 'anything goes'. Actually, your little blue & white guys could be 'snow gnomes', yeah? TFS & Hugs. Happy New Year too.

  10. Very pretty indeed. i think my faves are the turquoise ones! He is such a sweet little snowman...
