Hi there everyone I'm posting my DT card for CCAYR this month. The theme is Oh Christmas Tree and we would like to see a Christmas tree as the main focal point on your creation. I decided to make a CAS card because I wanted something pretty, lightweight and simple so that I could do a few of them. I did this when I was having a play with glues, gilding flakes and WOW powders. I couldn't get the gilding flakes to work with the glues so ended up using my WOW powders with a Kanban clear stamp plus an embossing folder I got free with a magazine.
6" x 6" white card blank - C & C
Christmas Tree - Kanban Clear Stamps
WOW 'Twinkling Lights' Embossing Powder (WS73R)
Snowflake Embossing Folder - Free with magazine a while ago
Piece of white hammer finish card
Zig Two Way Glue
Gold Foil - Heidi Swapp
Christmas sentiment - Typed then foiled on Minc machine
Gold Sequin and gold gems - stash
I do hope you can enter our challenge this month - Christmas is sooooo close and you know you need to get those cards sorted! There are two cling mount Christmas rubber stamps up to win so come on join in!
Thanks to all of you who commented on my last card and for all your comments on Facebook (must admit I'm getting better on it now - woo hoo) regarding my weight loss. Don't like to go on about it too much 'cos it is difficult to lose weight and the only reason I'm managing so well is because my diagnosis of diabetes in early March has given me a boot up the bum! As of last Wednesday I've lost 3st 9½lbs - that means one more pound and I'm in the next stone down.
So sorry to go on - I know reading about someone else's weight loss can be a big yawn but me 'n' the maestro are so chuffed. He's stabilised at a good weight now and has lost over 3st himself.
Anyway you can wake up now - don't forget to enter our Christmas tree challenge - you know it makes sense :)
Lots of big hugs to you all
Love Sue xxx
