Christmas Card Club - anything but square

Good morning all, hope you are well.

Our final challenge for the year - where did the time go to??? But at least I'm organised this time and my post is scheduled to go! I feel as if I have gained a day this week - I seem to have had loads of time to do everything I wanted to do!! Off out to lunch today with my little sister to hand over the wedding stationery samples to my nephew and his intended.....I hope they like what I've done!!

This week Clare has given us the theme of  "Anything but a Square".

I've made a rocker card using the fancy grand nestie dies - just love these dies. The decoupaged fan and backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's Elegant Fan CD. Snowflake punch is from Martha Stewart, doiley is from my stash.

You'll find the links to the other girls in my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.
If you'd like to join our little club next year, contact Clare and she'll sort you out! (in the nicest possible way lol).

CHNC - Christmas birthday or anything goes
Cards Galore - Christmas
Jingle Belles - anything holiday goes
