Christmas Card Club #10 Village Scene, not quite, but it is a scene ...

Hello lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was good and your week has started well. 
As above I’ve a card for our Christmas Card Club to share today.  It is/was the lovely Rita’s turn to pick the theme, #10 a village scene; I have been trying to find a particular stamp set since Friday!  Huge apologies Rita: I know I have them but I can’t find them anywhere.  There was a set in the re-cycling candy stamps I won from the lovely and talented Brenda of Floral Fantasies!  The time has, unfortunately, come for me to knuckle down and get my work room sorted.  It’s a very long, painful and distressing process but I think it’ll be worth it in the end.  
I grabbed what I could find today and whipped up this quick little card and until I have found those stamps here is another card for our box ...

 An A6 card - good to post too! 

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:

As soon I have linked this card to the above challenges I will be going off to visit all the lovely ladies of our group: if you ever want to play along with us and create two Christmas cards twice a month just let me know and I will get our lovely leader Margaret to get in touch with you.  They are a seriously talented group and provide a lot of inspiration to me.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x

You've created a wonderful scene Karen, it's a lovely card. I'm sure the gremlins enjoy hiding our craft stuff...your stamps are bound to turn up somewhere you already looked! Carol x

Hi Karen, your family of deer look wonderful among the firs and you have created a beautiful scene here. I'm sure your elusive stamp will reappear just when you are not looking for it, they always do, and I tend to agree with Carol about the gremlins :)
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog yesterday too, it's encouraging when trying something new to get such feedback. Take care,

So sorry I'm late in commenting. My Internet problems are consuming my life at the moment. To cap it all my iPad crashed this morning and took my IT specialist a talk through on the phone to get it working again. It's enough to drive you to drink. In fact sitting in the garden right now with a Pinot Grigio Blush. Very nice it is too. Anyway I digress. This is the perfect scene you would see if you were standing at the edge of the village looking out so as far as I'm concerned you have it spot on. Hugs Mrs A.
