Summer & Christmas Holiday Combo

*** This is my third post today so if you've missed a Sneak Peek at the Uniko Studio release please 
check out HERE and my GDT post for the Timeout Challenge is HERE

I've got 2 very quick cards to share with you and slightly odd combination 
in that one is for Christmas challenges and the other 'hot' challenge.
In the UK it's never 'hot' at Christmas!

First up is to enter the CASology challenge where this week's theme is HOT
I wasn't sure where to go with this one but my son bought me this cute
L'il Inkers Stitched sun ray die for Christmas so I wanted to use it

Card Recipe:
Mama Elephant: Landscape Trio & Index card dies
Impression Obsession: Heart Die
Clearly Besotted:Sweet Little Sentiments
Sweet Stamp Shop: Stuck on This (Ouch sentiment)

I'd also like to drop this in at Simon Says Stamp where it's 
All things Bright and Beautiful so surely a sunny holiday counts!

Here's my Christmas Card and I'd like to enter this at
One Layer Christmas Card (a new one for me)

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Joy to the World Stamps & Sentiment
WOW: Metallic Gold Pale Rich embossing powder
Gold pearls from my stash


Ok that's all for me today but I'll be back tomorrow with 
the next Sneaky Peek from the new Uniko Studio release.
Hope to see you then and thanks for stopping by.
