Christmas Carols for the CCC!

 Hello to You All, I hope your weekend is going well and that you have some good plans, even although you perhaps can't go all that far yet, or do too many things. Hoping your weather is like ours here in Inverness, beautifully sunny and warm.

Another two weeks have gone by and it's time for the Christmas Card Club to show this challenge's themed card, and this time around it's our very own Rita who has chosen Christmas Carols....or of course anything goes.


I've only managed one card this time, and used a LOTV image that I've had for yonks and coloured with Polychromo pencils, added Glamour Dust glitter for the sparkle. For some reason which I'm not entirely sure about I decided to cut the card shape and the image out with a Honeybee die shape. The musical notes, snowflakes and sentiment are all from Dovecraft. Finishing off with a few clear gems.  I hope this'll do Rita, thank you for the challenge I did enjoy it, using both old stash and new.

I'm going to schedule this card for tomorrow for when the CCC post goes live.

Take care everyone and keep safe


 I would like to enter my card into;

Morning Kate. I love your card. LOTV have always been a favourite of mine too. Like you it’s been beautiful here too, apart from Tuesday, Torrential rain and high winds. Annie took me to the hospital that day where we stayed for 3 hours. Stay Safe my friend. Hugs Rita xx
