For a special couple

Because the family were meeting up today to celebrate mum's 90th birthday (which was on Tuesday) we all took the opportunity to exchange Christmas cards/presents and also a lot of birthday cards had to be given as well.

So yesterday I needed to make some cards and this was one of them for one of my nieces and her husband.

The background paper is from Cosy Christmas collection given recently with Quick Cards. The image and sentiments were part of a kit from QVC a year or two ago and the piece across the middle is a snippet left over from some English Paper Company paper.

This is for:

Gingerloft 30: Christmas and winter
Pollycraft 120: Christmas fun
Bah! humbug 47: cute Christmas critters
For fun: Christmas card
Fairytale 29: Christmas
Raise the bar 86: it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Simply create too 1: all about Christmas
Cupcake craftroom December: traditional Christmas
Craft your passion 86: tis the season
Jingle belles: wrapping it up
Joanna Sheen 1: Christmas wishes
Stamp, scrap & doodle: holiday card
Alphabet: V for very vibrant
Mami doodles 39: make it shine (glitter)
Ooh-la-la 94: lots of sparkle
Crafty catz 111: the colours of Christmas with the option of sparkle
Creatalicious 28: Christmas and make sure it sparkles
Jules crafty snippet challenge week 47 (the strip across the middle)
Catch the bug: December anything goes
Scrapbook sisters 62: anything goes
