I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!

Whoops! I am late with my Christmas Card Club submission. I should have posted it first thing this morning but have had a bit of a topsy turvy week...

It was Kate's turn to chose the theme and she picked A Christmas Scene. Now she did say it was however we interpreted it...so...

Getting the overseas Christmas cards into the mail is when I think the Christmas season begins for me. As crafters we spend so much time planning and making our Xmas cards. The joy of getting those into the mail is such a good feeling. I usually have the main decorations up by then...the Nativity, the Christmas decor, etc. Once the cards are on their merry way, then I can get the tree up too!


Had it sitting out to glue down and finally got it done.This is another snippets card. The image is a precoloured Wild Rose Studio topper. matted with a scrap of dark charcoal card. That is sitting on a piece of unknown Xmas DP...another one from my bits box. The embellishments are Simple Stories I believe, and the wee red heart is a leftover from Valentines.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

1. Christmas Card Club - A Christmas Scene
2. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets

Oh my goodness Mo, I went into panic when I read the 'C' work and thought it can't be Rudolph Day again already, can it.

There is a lovely traditional feel to your card.

The 32deg you mentioned is some heat, here in the UK we are still struggling to reach the love 20's, we seem to have a predominant chilly wind which takes away any heat there may have been when it's not a heavy cloudy sky.

Roll on August when we head of to proper summer weather.
