Christmas Deer for the CCC!

Hello Crafting Buddies, and how are you all this Saturday, well I hope.

Well, has your week been as hectic as mine?? I just don't know where the time has gone, and I don't know really what I've done.  I' have managed to get almost all of the Christmas cards written, a job I hate, love making them, but not writing or addressing them, but all but a couple are done and posted.

Now I'm here to post the Christmas Card Club's last card of the year and this time the choice was from Zoe and it's Anything Goes, so easy peasy;
Using an Imagination Crafts Stencil and their Glitter Paste, DI and paper from LOTV, I whipped up this little scene. only added a little Liquid Pearls to give the impression of snow felt it didn't need anything else.

I'm going to schedule this post for tomorrow Sunday when the CCC goes live, when the other members will be sharing their cards.  Being a part of the CCC is a great way to keep ahead of Christmas card making, so why not join us next year. All you need to do is click on any of the members blog and get some info.

Off now to do some ironing, while Columbo is on, I just love him.
Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my last card, I will have to try and catch up on your blogs.
Enjoy your weekend whatever your doing, and see you next week, take care everyone

I love your card Kate. Writing and addressing cards really is the most awful chore isn't? Ugh. But I think I have done now at last. You made me smile and think of my dad because he, too, loved Columbo! Hugs Christine xx

Zoe Tant said...

Well done Kate on writing all your cards. Like you it's not my favourite job but I love sharing crafting with others so a necessary part of the good bits. Super card, love the dear. Happy Christmas to you and yours, hugs Zx

A beautiful card Kate, such a wonderful winter scene.
Isn't it funny how we love to make our cards but dislike writing them, perhaps we should write in them throughout the year as we make them!

That's the part of the job I hate the most too. Mine are all done and dusted now so the pressure is off. Any I make now will be for next years stock pile. Love this card. The blue and brown look super together and your little scene is just right. Hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Crafty time in 2016. Hugs Mrs A.

It's gorgeous! Love your stenciling with this very wintery scene, and what a great job you did with this one. The color choices work so well to create a brrrr feel with the bare trees and solitary deer. Also enjoyed the picture of the kitty by the fire! TFS & Merry Christmas. (and yes, it was hectic last week, and will be again this week I think!) Hugs

Sue said...

The scene you created on your card is magical, so the sentiment is perfect too, Kate.
