Christmas Card Club

I think "Simples" cards are all I can do at the
What about all those lovely papers and embellishments that I have stashed away!!  They are definetely nowhere to be seen on this card!
Kerry chose the theme for us of using a Robin, Holly and a Postbox as an optional image.  Well I don't seem to have the postbox but have a tick against the other two.
The robin and the holly are both Penny Black Stamps and the Sentiement is from one of the new Fizzy Moon stamps. Coloured with Prisma Pencils  I used a red promarker to make a border round the edge of the card.

Pop over and see what the other girls have come up with, they are all listed on my sidebar.
Thanks for looking and popping over to visit.  Hope you are having a lovely weekend.  There is definetely not much crafting going on with me at the moment so will have to have a rumage and see if I have some cards made that I haven't yet shared with you for during the week.

Feeling Fruity

We would like to see fruit on your cards or fruit colours...easy peasy 'lemon' squeezy!
This is the challenge at Less is More this week.
Now girls I am not sure I would agree with the above "Easy peasy" idea!! 
I thought I would have had a stamp somewhere with fruit but no....I looked and searched and looked and searched again but to no avail.  I then had a thought late last night that I could cut a shape on my Cricut :)    
So here is my "Simples" card
Image cut on Cricut using Doodlecharm Cartridge
Frame made with square Nesties
A bit of added sparkle from stash to finish.  (I have to say it looks better in real life)

I think it needs a sentiment but not sure really....maybe without is still fine. 
Have a lovely evening and hope you have sunshine like we have :)
Thanks for visiting.
