The reason XMAS! Yep it's catching up with me and I'm NOT ready for it. So in between working I've been doing crazy shopping, writing cards ... until I ran out!!!! Grrrr! Wrapping up, tag making, more tag making and obviously now need just a few more Christmas cards!
So that's what I've been doing today. It's now that I realise no matter how prettily embellished my cards may be when it comes down to the good old postage rates drastic action is needed and it's really not my style but one must adapt!!!
First up is my entry to Less is More where the theme this week is Metallic and a Colour. Delving in my 'ancient' stash I found a metal snowflake, wire and brad so my colour ended up being silver. Not really sure about my wire but just wanted to have a go with it!
'Snowflakes' is the the codeword at Addicted to CAS this week so I'm going to enter my card there too.
Snowflake stamps and sentiment from Uniko Studio
Gems, Brad, Wire and Snowflake from my stash
Next up I've made two cards for the Colour Q Challenge. Although they aren't traditionally Christmas Colours I loved the combo so had to play along - just can't decide between the two cards so popping both in the 'hat'.
So for this one I've used the same snowflake stamp set from Uniko Studio, this time with a different sentiment. I've embossed the top half of the card with a new EF I couldn't resist from Cuttlebug, called spots and dots.
The theme at CAS on Sunday is 'Christmas' this week and I'm going to drop this one in there too.
Ok I've got one more to sneak in before the shutters come down so I'll be back in a minute!
