Christmas Card Club Winter Sports

Crikey another two weeks have passed and it's time again for us Christmas Clubbers to show our wares.  It was Sally's turn to pick the theme this time and she's asked to see Winter Sports.


Using a LOTV topper which I bought on Thursday, backing paper is from Papermania, dies are all Spellbinders and punch is from Martha Stewart. Embossing folder from Cuttlebug. Sentiment is also from LOTV. The gorgeous stitched ribbon is recycled from the Christmas cake! I've added glamour dust and stickles to give a little sparkle.  All the bits for this card came from my bit box.

If you'd like to join our little club get in touch with one of us (list in sidebar), it's a lot of fun and gets those Christmas cards made ahead of schedule.

Challenges entered:
Crafty Boots - glitter
Shopping our Stash - embossing/Meljens
Cooking it up with Katie - embossing, stitching punch
Paper Play - recycle it
CHNC - glam up with glitter
Hiding in my Craftroom - scraps
Just Some Lines - spring cleaning
(everything except the image and ribbon are over 6 mths old)
