Christmas Card Club - A Christmas Scene


Our challenge this fortnight was set by  Kate and she asked the Christmas Card Club ladies to make a card with a Christmas Scene.   Well  mojo left me on this one, but eventually today I've made this card and whilst I'm thrilled that I worked my Big Shot and Stampin' Up! dies to create a flip image in the middle and some depth, I'm not entirely happy with the card, but I don't want to let my fellow club members down and so here it is.  I've used the retired set Holiday Home and the matching framelits Homemade Holiday and then used marker pens and a blender pen to add colour.  I also embossed some snowflakes and stars from the set with clear embossing powder to make them 'pop' when I used the blender pen to add the sky.  Please do visit the other ladies in our club, who I know will have had lots more success with this challenge.  

On a different note. Today we are celebrating our Olivia's birthday. She's sweet 16 today and we are so proud of our lovely daughter.  Bless him, Charlie, made his first ever cake for her and it wasn't a bad attempt by any means and you can see she was thrilled.

Here's wishing you a happy end to your weekend and a fun packed week ahead!
