Christmas Wreaths for the Christmas Card Club!

Hello Everyone and how are you this evening?. Well I hope and enjoying your weekend.
We have had another beautiful sunny day, a bit cold, and I would guess it will get colder tonight, but I'll not worry about that as I've got on my lovely cosy new knitted socks, which I will show another time because this post is all about the Christmas Card Club.  
Karen has chosen the theme and it's Christmas wreaths, unfortunately Karen is not too well just at the moment, so she might not be able to join in, but wishing her a speedy recovery and a thank you for this lovely challenge.
Here is my cards, yes it's a twofer;
The top card is stamped with a Little Claire image and coloured with SN Pens, and Hobby Craft paper, I liked the blue/grey colours.
The second card is made with Card-io Festive Fir Cone Stamps and Versa Colour Ink and a Woodware  sentiment.

I'm scheduling this post for tomorrow, hopefully it will work.

Thank you for all your kind comments on my Oldie card, and thanks to Anne, who pointed out that it was in fact a LOTV stamp and not DoCrafts, the memory just goes, so sorry for the misinformation folks.

The other CCC members will be along with their wonderful creations.
Enjoy the remainder of your evening and see you soon,

Two great cards Kate and two lovely wreaths. I think perhaps my favourite is #1, but it's hard to choose becasue they are both so nice. I was going to use my Cardio stamps too, but unfortunately I was pressed for time so went for the easy option of a die. Hope all is well with youand Alistair. Hugs Christine xx

Rita said...

Good Morning Kate. Two fantastic cards. I forgot about my Cardio Stamps, but I love both your cards and would find it hard to pick a favourite. Sunny morning here too but very cold. Look forward to seeing those socks. Hugs Rita xxxx

Oh my, I love it when you do a twofer! (I forgot about the one-fer!) Each wreath is so pretty, and of course I adore the tiny bird perched on #1. I like the way you've done #2, as I'm guessing this is done with what I call 'peg stamps', where the image is on a tiny dowel, and you have multiple motifs to form the wreath. I can never get them done properly, but you've succeeded magnificently. Each card is just beautiful, so well done! Stay cozy & warm in your new sox. I've worn some the last few nights too, but nothing so lovely as your knitted ones!!! TFS & Hugs

Sue said...
