Christmas Card Club Challenge #16- Christmas Activities.

 This fortnights challenge over at the Christmas Card Club has been set by Maureen, and she's hoping to see cards featuring Christmas activities- Sleighs, Sledges, Skiing. The only stamps I have along this line are from Card-io, in their scene building sets, and one, called Festive Fun, has stamps of Sledges, and an Ice Skater.

 My first card features a Snow Globe, called Crystal Globe. The tree-line is from the same set. The snowflakes are from another set called Winters Kiss, which has half a dozen or so different sized and shaped snowflakes.

My second card starts with a snowflake wreath, made up from an assortment of snowflake stamps, in various blue Memento inkpads- Danube Blue, Nautical Blue and Bahama Blue.

The trees are Card-io again, Winter Woods, the dog walker & skater are both from Festive Fun.
 Matted this one onto some pale blue glitter card, and I rounded the corners on both pieces.

So those are my offerings for this fortnight.

Two wonderful cards to celebrate Mo's fun challenge theme. These images certainly fit the bill, and I love each one of them. The snowflake wreath encasing the winter fun is such a great way to frame and draw the eye right in. The snowglobe was quite delightful too. I love both of these! TFS

Two beautiful cards, Shaz. I love them both. The snow globe idea is a big hit with me. I had not thought of that myself...and it is perfect for the theme!

Sure wish I could have taken every single person I "know" in England, out for tea, but DH is very reserved and just luckily for me, he struck up a friendship with Sue T's DH Steve! So I did learn some inky tricks like you already know, and I learn and get some of the ovely cardio stamps.

I wish I could time my next trip around one of the big stamp and stamp goodies sales...now that would be fun!
