Christmas Card Club - Sentiment as Focus

Good morning all.

Sorry I'm being such a bad blogger, life seems to be getting in the way at the moment plus the computer is in the wrong place and that can't be changed until sometime next year when we rebuild the conservatory :( I just can't seem to use my IPad for blogging, it just seems needlessly complicated!

It's time once more for our little Christmas Card Club to strut their stuff and this time it was my turn to pick the theme and I chose "Sentiment as Focus". I've missed the last four challenges (sorry ladies) but need to catch up to get my cards finished on time! I got some new stamps a few weeks ago and managed to put them to good use....and made six cards!

Sentiment stamp is from Woodware; simply stamped and fussy cut before matting and layering, then adding a bow to finish.

Two in green..and two in red!

Was going to say if you'd like to see what the other girls have produced you'll find the links in my sidebar....but blogger ate them and I haven't had time to redo them yet!!! Has anyone else had that problem??


  1. Hi Carol....perfect sentiment stamp....and 6 great cards...thanks for a great challenge really enjoyed it xxxxxx

  2. Wow Carol. Six cards, every one is fabulous too. You will catch up before the big day. Going to the SECC on the Friday to meet up with Kate. If your free we would love to see you. Hugs Rita xxxx

  3. These are great cards Carol and thank you for a fabulous theme. Lots of our ladies have made multiple cards this time as have you, a great theme to get your crafty juices flowing.

  4. It must be very difficult when youmove house Carol. Other things take priority over crafting and we all undersatnd that so don't worry about it. You have done a great job with these
    and I loved your challenge. Hugs Christine xx

  9. Lovely Christmas cards Carol, such a super sentiment.

  10. I do like Woodware stamps. This is just perfect for your challenge. Looks so different just by changing the colours. I have used a Woodware stamp on one of my cards. Hugs Mrs A.

  11. great theme Carol and wonderful cards too - brilliant! Hugs rachel x

  12. Lovely cards. I was late this month. Just added my card.

  13. lovely cards!
    have a nice day

  14. Fabulous cards. I blog all the time from my iPhone when I don't need to link things lol using the blogger app. Quick & easy for a technophobe like me x

  15. You made a great start on building your stash with this set of nifty cards. Love the different colors, and the sentiment is a wonderful one. Of course you've been busy, with moving and organizing 2 houses, and it's totally understandable. We'll all be here when you can get back to blogging as you normally do. I couldn't manage to post with an Ipad either!!! Take care, and good luck with the new house. TFS & enjoyed this challenge very much. Hugs

  17. Hi Carol

    Perhaps we should sit and hold hands in the blog naughty corner .. .. I too have been struggling to keep up with my blog and the commenting recently.

    These brides have a lot to answer for! LOL!! But you have been moving house .. .. far more disruptive than a few weddings!!

    Your cards are lovely. Love the sentiment very much!

    Take care.

    Love Jules xx

  18. Hi Carol, how are you?
    Are you settling in well in the new house?
    Loving your sentiment based Christmas cards, one of my favourites for the festive season. I used to have some tiny mouse embellishments that would have looked super cute with your cards.

    Have a great weekend, hugs Erika. x
