The C Word!

Hello friends

Today's post is a little late being published...helps if I press that 
schedule button! 

It's a Christmas card - I got told off on Facebook for mentioning Christmas 
but in the crafting industry we do work months ahead and I'm happy
to talk about Christmas any time of the year - I love it!

I've gone for navy blue and white card and used 
2013 Holiday Trees (available here) -
I wanted a sort of pine tree forest look.
Adding a few crystal gemstones and my favourite - a tag and twine,
job done!

LoraineC - wishing your son well in his skydive - how brave!

Take care friends - have a great weekend and stop by tomorrow...
announcing August's Charity Kit winning number.

Good morning Christine, really striking card today, using all the sizes on the one card was a bit of inspiration.

Morning Christine
Great Christmas card - unusual colours but I really like it. A good card to make if you have a lot to do.
Enjoy your day

Hi Christine
Great card today, I love how you've used all the size trees! Navy is one of my favourite colours for Christmas. Needless to say I have yet to make a start on mine!
Enjoy your day in the shop.

Hello Christine, this is a great card. It's good to have some inspiration 'cos the thought of making Christmas cards while the sun shines is not appealing. Oh it's stopped shining so I might as well get started. xxMargaretxx

Hi Christine
In my house it's never too soon to talk of Christmas, I make over 100 _cards to send and to sell so always start making them in the first week in January so as not to be rushed. It also means I can recycle bits from the previous years cards, thrifty idea yes!. Love this card and as I have the dies will be making my own version in red I think.
Best wishes to you all

I know I'll have to start sometime :[ but Christmas in August holds no appeal for me. Having said that your card today has given me a couple of ideas. Thank you.

Thank you Christine, I am pleased to say he is down and in one piece, I can think of better ways of spending a Saturday. A pretty card you are giving us lots of ideas for the big C. X

Lovely card & great colours. Good one to produce in larger numbers i'd think.

Hi Christine
Lovely card. Definitely NOT too early to start cards! This year I'm going to make all the tags too -even if I find I'm rushed and it's simply a bauble shape! Best wishes, Anne O

hi Christine. I love this gorgeous Christmas card. I love the navy/white combo, it is stunning. Like you I could look at them all year round : )
I hope you have a good weekend. Take care.

Hi Christine. You always manage to come up with unusual designs, and this is no exception. I like it. Anne x

Carole Z said...

HI Christine, I'm on 'catch up' again! Love your Christmas card...have no fear in mentioning this word, I think al crafters are resigned to using it from about June (at least), I have been trying so hard to fit some in around everything else at the moment! hugs Carole Z X
