Christmas Card Club Day!!

Hi everyone! hope everyone is okay in blogging land and thanks for all your wonderful comments I really love reading them. Well today is our Christmas Card Club day and the theme was 'Anything Goes' so I've found all my bits of Christmassy paper in my stash and then coloured this magnolia image and her bench and just basically added lots of stickles. Excuse the photo I didn't have much light in my craft room today its overcast and grey. Still coming down to earth after my lovely day on Thursday with the 'girls' and hubbies of course was lovely and I can't wait to do it again hopefully with a lot more of our blogging buddies! Well I'm off to take 'his lordship' out for a walk and tomorrow evening we are over to my eldest brothers for a bbq because it was his birthday yesterday but weather was too bad so fingers crossed the weather forecast is right and its also my crafty club tomorrow and its one of the girls 60th!! so we are having a surprise party for her so really looking forward to that as well. Well toodles everyone! and TFL hugglessssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Sue, a lovely Christmas card here. Your backing papers and embossed panel look great. You said you had come back to earth - but I think it will be a while yet! Lol! Hope you manage your BBQ tonight and enjoy your surprise party tomorrow. I can't believe it's a full week since had a BBQ at home with my family and friends. I'm sure I was only preparing the stuff a couple of days ago. Where does the time go> Enjoy the rst of your day. Love and hugs from Christine xx

Hi Sue,
me lovely little blogging matey.
Super card. I too love that starry die. Great image so wonderfully coloured in too. I do marvel at your stickles round the edges. If that was me I would have it everywhere except the edge of the paper and card. lol.
I am so glad you had a lovely time with your crafting buds. Can't wait till I meet up with you, Sue P, and hopefully lots of other crafting buds.
I am calling us the DOUBLE DS CRAFTING GROUP. LOL.
Give my pal Ollie the biggest hugs from Fairy Godmother.
Have a wonderful BBQ today. We were supposed to have one at my Sons yesterday, but the weather was horrific, so it was cancelled.
Lots of crafty love. Fairy Godmother Jenny L.

Lovely card, Sue. The Magnolia is beautifully coloured in and I like your choice of papers ... particularly the spotty one which I'm sure I recognise too. The Stickles adds a great sparkly touch. Elizabeth xx
