Well folks this is a week earlier than normal but the dates were 'jiggled' so that we would finish our cards at the right time before Christmas. I noticed this change when it was first made and then .... completely forgot about it, so I have had to do a really really quick card - I started this at 10.30am this morning and finished it at about 2.45pm - as you know this is just like greased lightning for me!!! Very CAS and almost flat (the poinsettias will flatten down more for posting) and there's not a coloured image in sight! I also managed to use several snippets of card in here so I shall be visiting the playground - any volunteers to give me a push on the swings!!!
Thank goodness it wasn't like the last theme which, despite it being a brilliant challenge, took me ages to decide which colour to go with the black and white design. I was working on that one for 5 days!!!
6" x 6" white card blank - Create and Craft
Merry Christmas - Cheery Lynn Dies
Poinsettias (three sizes) - Britannia Dies
Elegance Embossing Folder - Die'Sire Embossalicious
Snippet of gold/red Mirri card - stash
Snippets of plain red/green card - stash
Beads - stash
I am quite chuffed at the way it turned out, I don't make many CAS cards but have been pleased twice now - perhaps that's the way I shall have to go in future, the trouble is I love all me twiddly bits and me colouring in!!
I hope you are all having a good Bank Holiday weekend. Poor Graham has just about finished off decorating the dining room (with a bit of my help .....) it took him longer than normal because he had to re-plaster the wall under the window. He did this a while ago and then let it dry so upheaval has been reigning heavily in the Casa Passa! These things happen when your house is about 125 years old I suppose. Oh and his back is hurting him so I have sympathised and offered to rub it with a blue brick and linament.
I shall be off now, it's nearly tea-time and afterwards I have to prepare another post to show my first card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge blog. Sooooo excited!!
Please take care and I am sending virtual cuddles to all my friends who are poorly at the moment. Get well soon.
Lots of hugs and May the Fourth be with you!!! (Sorreeee)
