Christmas Activities for the CCC!

Hello to You All, I hope you are fit and well and still enjoying the lovely summer weather.

Thank you all so much for your visits and comments, and especially on my last post which was something of an essay, I appreciate that many of you read it.  
I try not to criticise the NHS as I think it's a marvellous thing to have and the way things are going we might not have it much longer, but it does need overhauling in some areas.. however that discussion would lead into a political debate and not the time or place for that.

Would you believe it, it's time for another Christmas Card Club challenge, where does the weeks go to!! Anyway, it's our lovely Maureen who has chosen the theme this time around and she would like to see cards with Christmas Activities. Here are mine;
 I've used images from the Debbie Moore Snowbuddies again, just because I had them already printed out and in my drawer. This one has a John Next Door EF, called Confetti, it's a lovely one to use. Everything else is from the CD. We have a friend who snowboards, so he will be receiving this in a few months time.
  Now we have a Snowbuddy skiing, he looks like he could be in a bit of a pickle. LOTV paper in the background.  Just some fun cards, and this one will go to another friend who goes skiing. So thank you Maureen for your choice of theme, I did enjoy making them.

I'll leave it here for now and schedule this post for tomorrow, Sunday when the CCC goes live.

Have a smashing weekend, whatever you're doing and take care,
I would like to enter the first card into the https://scrapsoflifebyscrappymo.blogspot.com/2018/07/july-rudolph-days-challengea-little.html#comment-form

Sorry for being so late in commenting Kate. I was up in north Yorkshire looking after Molly ( my sister's little dog who was adopted by her son) whilst Darren and Ellie had a few days away. It was also a good chance to visit my brothers who only live about 35 miles from there. Your cards made me smile - particularly the skier. I've a feeling he's going to come a cropper very soon ... lol! Hope all is well. Hugs Christine xx

I love your two cute snowmen Kate, and sounds like they will go to the right people too. It's great when we find an imaage that suits a particular person, and these two will certain bring a big smile to both their faces I'm sure. x
