Sentiments for the CCC!

Hello Everyone, hoping you are all well and having a good weekend. We are having a quiet one, well at least I am, just a bit of chilling and crafting....well knitting really, I've been trying to get a Snowman scarf finished, now I just have to put fringes on it, never done that before, so over o You Tube I'll be going.

Well our wonderful sunny warm weather has finally gone, today it has rained all day, felt strange to have the rain today as it's been so long, I think tomorrow is to be much the same, not good for the washing.

Anyway, time again for the Christmas Card Club ladies to show their creations with the theme chosen by our Carol and it's Sentiment as Focus. A super challenge so thanks for that Carol, here is what I've come up with;
Fabulous Woodware stamp, mind you you'd have to have friends with a sense of humour to send this one.
This is a lovely Crafty Individuals stamp and I've embossed it with WOW Gold EP, I think the paper is Dovecraft, and a lovely piece of ribbon that was in the pack that I'd won from Wendy Spanish Crafter. The little robin die is fro, Die'sire
I have to say I'm chuffed with how this one turned out, Woodware stamp again embossed in white WOW powder and coloured with SN Colourblend pencils. Sue Wilson's beautiful poinsettia stamp inked with DI and cut out, silver thread and gems.

Do visit the other team members as their creations will be fabulous.
I'll be scheduling this post for tomorrow, but just before I go, thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my Oldie yesterday, you are all very kind.

Take care everyone and see you soon

I would like to enter the third card into;http://theflowerchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/the-flower-challenge-1-theme-anything.html

MaryH said...

Aren't you clever to do THREE CCC cards. You can be justly chuffed over each one...Love the unique look of the different styles, and #1 just made me smile. With all the commercialism attendant on the holiday these days, the Humbug could fit just fine! Love the design & papers of #2, and great looking poinsettias on #3! Good job on the pencil coloring, Miss Kate! TFS & Hugs

Jennifer Johnston said...
