Since it's nearing Christmas and all........

Hi there!

Once again I find myself apologising for the infrequency of my posts. On the 7th Dec, I lost my e mail account and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO frustrated trying to get the thing back up and running. I can only imagine the amount of e mails that are going to be waiting for me when I eventually gain access to it again. For those blogs that I regularly comment on.....I promise I will be back....soon!!

Anyhow....onto today's effort. I thought I'd share with you some of the Christmas cards I have made. As usual, after promising myself that I would start earlier...it is once again LAST minute creations, so they are very CAS!!! I found a GORJUS card by Penny Smiley here. I decided to do a few colour combinations on both WW and VV.

Very Vanilla Versions

 
Whisper White Versions
 
 
I used basically the same colour combo on both sets. Here are the Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo ornaments up close.....





The sentiment is from "Delightful Decorations". It is amazing what you can find when you rummage around you stamp collection....isn't it??

I hope you like these CAS cards. I have more to share, because whilst I have had no e mail, the upside is that I have had more time to create!!

Thanks for popping by.

I live the simplisity of these cards, add the pop of colour on the ornament and presto a stunning card.
Lovely Lynda!!!

Ohhh very lovely CAS cards, love the oval embossed area with the ornament in there, a great card to mass produce.

I think lots of us have had to CASE ideas for our cards this year! And CAS is always a winner! Gorgeous hunny! Can imagine how frustrated you have been without Internet! Skye's boyfriend has been away and she was not getting incoming texts for about 10 days! Very frustrating! (All fixed today!) Try & be patient ... I guess the Sandy Hook School tragedy puts all our grievances into perspective. Hugs xxx
