Christmas Card Club

Today is my first contribution to Christmas Club.  Yes hard to believe I'm thinking about Christmas but like many of you I was way behind on card making when I hit Christmas 2011 and I happened to comment on Sylvie's blog that she is really organised making Chrimbo cards already.  She came back to me and said that the ladies in the club had started their club for that very reason,  they weren't organised!!!!!  They invited me to join and now each fortnight one of the club suggests the challenge and everyone makes a Christmas themed card using that challenge.  In my opinion I chose a tough one to start on as it had to be a card with more than the usual one fold line.  The challenge also stated that it couldn't be an easel card so I set too hunting about my craft room and remembered an interesting card made at craft club.  It was set then by the lovely Jenny and it reminded me of a lovely lady Kath who also attended our club.  Sadly she passed away last year and so this card is for Jenny, thank you for the technique, and for Kath as yesterday our craft club met for a day of crafting and we fondly remembered our friend and how helpful and generous she always was to us all. 
Now the card is also a gift inself as it opens from the picture above to the 'door step' below.  I've kept the colouring simple on the inside and hopefully the snow gives you the message of Christmas and the sentiments confirm it. 

Do pop by the other ladies in the Christmas Club as they all have beautiful cards to show you.  We all have different styles too so I'm sure you will find lots of inspiration. You can find all their blogs in my side bar.  Have yourself a fortnightly blog hop of Christmas cheer!
Finally I want to thank the Card Club ladies for the wonderfully warm welcome I've received on joining the Club and hope I don't let them down. 
Have a great day.
Happy Stampin'
