CCC Challenge


Hi everyone..the theme of our Christmas Card Club challenge this week was chosen by the lovely Karen..she chose use teabag/origami folding. I found this hard because I've never ever done any kind of teabag folding LOL anyway I found this tutorial on you tube there was lots actually but I chose this one. I've used up snippets of paper and the last piece of ribbon off the roll. embossed my backing paper and inked it up with TH distress inks. TFL and huggles everyone Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

LOVE your Christmas tree! I used to do a lot of paper folding, but never teabag folding. I kept thinking I was going to learn and then got hooked on stamping & inks. I still have a box of beautiful folding papers, that I take out and look at from time to time :) Can't part with them. Happy Sunday, Shirleyx

How I love this cutie pie of a card. With lots of fishermen and fisher-grandchildren in my family, I am always on the lookout for fishing images. This one is just so sweet...I love the look on the bunnies face.

I have so many questions for you about how you create your cards and store your images etc. I had some free digis and a couple that I won stored on my computer that crashed. It is going in to see if the shop can transfer the photos and the digis. I had back up for the photos but not the digies...silly me!
As I create my new files, I want to do it in a more organized way this time...but hoave no idea how! lol

Love this sweet fishing card Sue...
