Christmas CAS cards - Thursday 5th December

Hello Friends!

I can't believe it's Thursday already, I have no idea where the time is going at the moment!  Yesterday I decided to sit down and write the CAS cards I had made...there were more than 50 - it took ages  and I still need to make about 20 more of them, plus more than 10 'special' ones and the last few family very special ones...that does it, next year I carry on making Christmas cards all year, lol I say that every year!

I also finished putting up the decorations yesterday, so the house is now looking like a bit of a 'winter wonderland'...I just love the twinkly lights!

This is just a quick post before I head off to work...

The photo is of my CAS card designs I used for the majority of my Christmas cards: they are all 5x5 or 6x6 and although all of these in the photo have backing papers, most were just plain white with glitter, ribbon and a topper.

The papers are all from Pink Petticoat, as are the digi stamps: I coloured some of the stamps with pencils and some with chalks. They are small and easy to colour and I hadn't used my chalks in a very long time, so that was fun!  I used a mixture of a scalloped circle punch, Spellbinders dies and just plain tearing with my hands to create the toppers.

Well off to battle a very windy morning soon..getting the hens up and then off to work!

See you all later and have a good day! Thanks so much for stopping by,

Love and hugs,

Carole Z X

  4. They may be CAS but they are all beautiful, love the little penguin one especially. Still not got the decorations up, nor made many cards, I may just have to bite the bullet and buy some this year............I said I would never do that, but needs must, when the devil drives....... Hope the winds were not too bad, a lot of roads were closed near us. Hugs, Anne x
