Christmas church stamp

Hope you are all having a good weekend and have some crafty time planned.  I am off over to LOTV as soon as my hubby comes back from golfing as he will be watching footie on the telly and l don't like the shouting and hopefully cheering that goes with it :)
This is a card l was asked to make by my cousin and l really struggled with a suitable image but once she said traditional it made it a bit easier and it all fell into place.  I kept it fairly simple and decorated the inside to match and she was please with it.

Updated - had a good shop at LOTV and glad l went out as Leeds were well and truly beaten 6-0 
Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend x Susan x


  1. I think the soft hues of blue work wonderfully well with the image Susan.

    I have to admit that it sounds like I fall into the same footie category, so much so that I am often banished to the bedroom to watch on my own. Not ladylike at all I know !

    Sorry to have been missing this week, we were without phones and internet from Monday until yesterday PM - nightmare.

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  22. Gorgeous card, Susan! I love the framing and white poinsettia around the image. Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Ice Inspiration!

  23. First, I love this image! Perfect for your occasion too. Next the S/B die is one of my very favorites. It is so 'dressy' & elegant too. Loved the soft blue sponging inside with the church. All the other elements you've added, make this a really outstanding card for a special celebration. I'm sure your cousin was delighted with this one. TFS & Hugs
