That's right folks - it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and this month Danielle is choosing our challenges.

I'm off now - visiting my Mum and Dad, they are finding it hard sorting and closing granddad's house so I am going to lend a hand. Granddad's ashes are also going to be interred while I'm there but - it won't be all sadness. It's Mum's birthday too so hopefully some good times too.

I can't wait to see what you do with Danielle's sketch and don't forget to pop on over and see what the DT have done this week too.
See you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. Love this set too, shame it's retired! Oh well, you've made a beautiful card, the stamping is perfect. Hope you enjoy your weekend away

  2. This is a lovely card - I do like the pine cones, and that bold sentiment inside is fab!

    I hope all goes well closing up your Grandad's house - I remember doing a similar thing with my mum when my Nanna died. It turned into a day of shared memories as we found things that Nanna had kept from my childhood - hugs to you x

  3. This is just stunning, Jacqueline! LOVE that pine cone stamp--I didn't get that set and am now slapping my forehead because of it, lol! Good luck with your task--it's never fun to have to go through an entire household. HUGS! :)

  4. You've made so many gorgeous cards with that set Jacqueline and this is no exception. Love those pinecones in the panels and the gorgeous background. Hugs D

  5. It's a stunning set Jacqueline and it looks gorgeous made into tiles like this. I like the way you overlapped your outer two with the middle one. It's so difficult mixing the sad with the happy but I suppose that is life. Take care, Vicky x

  6. What a beautiful card Jacqueline - as always when you use this set! I see you're keeping up with decorating the inside too - well done you!
