Christmas Club anything but a card.

Hi to all,
 This post is a wee bit overdue but it took me a while to decide what to make. The challenge this fortnight was set by the lovely Clare and I spent a few days scratching my head before I came up with my contribution to the Christmas Club "anything but a card"  and here they are! I thought I would make a set of drink coasters,  just to be a little different.
 The doilies are  a Cheery Lynn die cut,  English Tea Party. I then stamped the LOTV stamp onto card, coloured with promarkers and pencils and glittered then cut out with Spellbinders Circles and matted onto the doilies and hey presto, coasters! Hope this qualifies for the challenge girls, especially after seeing all your fab works of art.
 Not sure if there is a challenge out there I could enter them into, so If anyone knows of one, let me know.
Hugs Sue.



  1. WoW! Super cute!! These are Stunning.. LOve them.

  4. Hi sue
    Wow these are fabulous.... I was a bit stumped on this one too!

    Hope you are well ..x

  5. Sue these most definitely fit the challenge and are far too lovely to ever be used as coasters. At the very least you should turn them into card toppers. Soooo pretty.

  6. Wow Sue these coaster's are absolutely beautiful!!! and you totally rocked this challenge girl!!!!. That was what I was looking for, something a little different just to get our grey matter thinking. I see so many beautiful Christmas creations out there and sometimes we can be too much in our comfort zone lol! nice to step out sometimes. I absolutely love that Cheery Lynn doily die it is gorgeous and as always a beautiful LOTV image. Love the colours and what a lovely festive place mat you are going to have on Christmas day. Well done chickie!!! hugs Clare xxx

  7. Hello Sue!

    Oh darn it, these are just stunning! I am envious of your imagination as mine is so blocked its untrue! Oh I long to have some creativity like yours!

    Beautiful work, well done you!
