Catching up with 52 CCT

I have a lot of catching up to do after my holiday in America! I have missed three of the August challenges on 52 Christmas Card Throwdown! Determined to see it through to the end (!) I made four cards this morning. I know three are past challenges but I just had to do them!

Only having an hour to spare before going out I decided to only use two designs and quick, clean and simple cards. I am now up to date with 52CCT!

First up is this weeks current challenge:-

While on holiday I bought some stash from Papertrey Ink. Its so expensive to have delivered to the UK so I took the opportunity and had a parcel sent to the villa (it would be silly not to!) So I just had to use the die!

Using the same card design for the colour challenge of Silver & Gold, White & Cream:-

Then I decided to make small square cards for the next two challenges.


  1. Pat - love your glitter and bling card for this week's challenge - pretty paper, great layout. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

    so pleased to see all your other cards too - you really rocked the challenges. sounds like you had a great time here in the US. I can understand you taking advantage of ordering from Papertrey while here - I'm stocking up before we go back to the UK :)

  2. Love these cards Pat, they are so elegant. Well done with catching up with the challenges you super speedy crafter you!
    Lorry :o) xxx

  3. Wow - beautiful cards - thanks for joining in with our challenge(s)! this week at 52CCT - Jacqueline xx

  4. All such lovely cards, and it's not a bad idea to increase with 4 Christmas cards, it helps avoid the stress in November and December.
    I like how you used similar designs for the first two, it always amazes me how different a design can look by just a change of color!

  5. These are all awesome, Pat! LOVE the gorgeous layering and use of elements! Fabulous work! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! HUGS! :) Mynn xx

  6. WOW! These are fabulous, Pat! LOVE all the glitter and sparkle you added to all 4 cards! Well done. Thanks for joining our August Stash challenge at 52 {C}CT. Have a lovely week!
    hugs, Asha

  7. Wowsers Pat, what a fabulous collection of cards! You may have used just two designs and gone for quick, clean and simple but each one is SO stylish! I'm so impressed you caught up with all our challenges and so glad you shared all your lovely cards with us at 52 {C}CT! Ruth x

  8. Oh my gosh...what an awesome group of cards Pat! You are a true 52CCT fan :o) So glad you caught up with us and shared all these gorgeous creations! Hugs D
