Christmas Card Club - Card 07/2020

Evening Everyone,

You'd think that being confined to quarters for the duration would mean I had all the time in the world to make cards for today's Christmas Card Club challenge, but here I am running late again! I've been so busy keeping myself busy - sorting my stamps into categories and into the empty DVD cases bought specially for the job. I've been through my entire collection and, would you believe it, I do not have one image suitable for Rita's choice of Christmas Candle(s). Fortunately, LOTV came to the rescue again with these Cute Squares from the 'Christmas Girls' pack.

There was five toppers so there's five cards in all.

I rang the changes with different patterned paper backgrounds - all papers from my ancient collection of 6x6 paper packs - and a variety of embellishments from my equally ancient collection of adhesive backed pearls and gems. No real thinking involved!

These eight cards bring my total to twenty-nine so far this year!

I hope you will pop over to see what my teammates have created this week. You'll find a list of their names and links on my right sidebar - because, as I keep saying, they are so much more creative than I will ever be.

Hi Elizabeth

A lovely set of Christmas cards. At this rate you will be finished early this year.

I am pleased I am not the only one who has ancient paper pads floating about the place. I am trying really hard to use mine up .. .. but it is likely to take a longgggggg time!!! LOL!!

I hope you are keeping OK and are able to get your hands on some essential supplies. At least it is good to see the sunshine .. .. even if we aren't allowed to make the most of it.

Many thanks for the retirement wishes for Dave. A weird end to his working life .. .. but at least now all our days can be spent together with no more 6.00am alarms!!

Take care and stay safe.

Love Jules xx
