Another Christmas card

Hello everyone, well not quite as wonderful weather wise as yesterday but still fairly good today. I was in London for a musical workshop yesterday with the amazing Kerry Ellis, what a voice!  A lovely down to earth lady who seemed genuinely pleased to be working with us. We sang " Somebody to love" for her and then she sang with us and threatened to bring Brian May with her next time! We also learned Defying Gravity from Wicked as she took that show to Broadway and she sang again with us.
Anyway back to this weeks CASE-ing Christmas card which I thought I'd better do quickly as I missed the deadline last week and we are off to Portsmouth tomorrow for a few days for Charlie's birthday celebrations.
This weeks card is by DT Mynn:


I decided to go with the baubles, come and see:

I embossed my card with a Cuts Too EF then I embossed a Xmas paper and cut out the baubles and mounted them on to the matching ones on the card. I used a quickie glue pen and gold glitter for the chains and to highlight the embossing. The sentiment is an SU one embossed with gold detail EP.

Last week friends of ours moved house and have gone to live by the sea and this is the card I made for them:

I thought it was appropriate!

It was also my friends daughters birthday and she teaches English and loves books so this is what I came up with:

Well that's all for now folks!! I'll be back on Thursday to tell you all about Charlie's birthday celebrations :)

Three great cards Val. Love the paper you've used for the baubles. Your new home card is lovely - I really like these images. I am sure Kate would really love her card - so appropriate! Sounds like the RC had such a good time with Kerry Ellis - great photo, although I needed my glasses to see you right at the back! Looking forward to seeing you Tuesday.

What a great post showcasing three very different cards.
I love nautical scenes and you've used such a beautiful image and I love the way you framed it! And I'd love to know what stamp you used for all those books, I have a friend who is a librarian and I can't think of a more perfect image for her!
