Grrrr !

Hello crafty friends !

I bet you thought I`d emmigrated or something.

The Christmas rush has started with a vengeance at work so last week I worked a 6 day week. Not something I`d recommend when all you really want to do is get into your craft room and make Christmas cards. At this rate I`m going to have to do the unthinkable and buy shop bought ones, argh! shock ,horror!!!
On top of that the weather has been atrocious. Alan and some of the neighbours have had to dig the cars out of the snow and clear the road but as fast as they are clearing the snow came down heavier. We have had over a 18 inches here and the novelty has worn off now. I`ve had to struggle to work in my wellies, very glamorous I`m sure and now they`re telling us that the snow is over but we have black ice. If it gets too bad I think I might be chucking a sickie.

Anyway I did manage to put together some cards the other night. I have loads to make for friends and neighbours so I thought I`d go with mass produced CAS cards.This is what I`ve come up with so far.
 And here is a close up of the pink one.
Once again, not a very good photograph, sorry about that.

The DP is by Elusive Images Artilicious CD.
I`ve punched along the top with a Fiskars punch.
The image is by Inkadinkado and stamped in Momento Rosebud. The sentiment is by Papermania.
I`ve matted the image onto some hot pink card and placed it using foam pads.
Then I`ve added some small gems to finish.

I`ve done the same with the other two but the green on I`ve used paper from the Shabby Princess.

I hope to be back later with something a bit more special.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
