52 CCT Theme Challenge

Here is my DT card for this week's challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. The theme has been chosen by our hostess, Patricia and is:


Now this can be Bethlehem, but it doesn't have to be. We are looking for any festive or wintery scene containing buildings. I was thinking that lots of Christmas town scenes are lovely New England or Nordic ones, so I decided to create one from the industrial north of England instead - channelling Coronation Street whilst humming 'Life in a Northern Town'! This was very easy using SU's Holiday Home stamps. I just cut some additional roofs (I had to check that plural. I'm sure I was brought up with 'rooves', but apparently that is the 'old secondary form'). I've added some small piles of snow in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and stamped a slight snowfall, as that it usually all you get here in the North West anyway!

I hope that you will join us. We really look forward to seeing your lovely, inspirational cards. April x


  1. love your snow and the tiny stars

  2. "And the morning lasted all day, all day..."
    Now you've got me singing that song in my head, ROFL! :) (At least it's a good song!)
    Your little scene turned out really cute, April!

    1. Ha ha! I'll have to do better with my earworms, Patricia! :-) Xx

    2. Such a fun the scene you created!

  3. ho April, quelle jolie ambiance givrée et cette touche orange lui donne de la luminosité, biz
