CAS Christmas

Welcome to December!! That means I can send one of the men in my life up in the attic to get down the magical Christmas boxes...yay!! Added to that Suzy the dog can start on her advent calendar!! I kid you not...Connor returned from town with one for her!!! 

It also means the start of a new challenge at 


this time the theme is CAS.

Here's mine


I made this as a tribute to Sarah of Inky Doodles who sadly passed away at the end of September.  This set is called Warm Winter Wishes and is a lovely set. I have several of her stamp sets and will think of her when I use them in the future. I think she would have approved of this one. The images were stamped onto desert storm card and coloured with Sakura gel pens for a little bit of sheen (it can't be seen here of course!!). I used dies for the wreath and fussy cut the smaller elements before sticking them with 3d foam pads for dimension.

CAS...simples.

It's my last card for this fabulous team as, sadly, real life commitments have taken up valuable crafty time. It's been a fabulous year girls and thank you for having me xx

Hope you will join in with our Clean and Simple theme this time, it's the ideal opportunity to knock up some quick batch makes. See you there!!

  21. Aaaah what a stunning tribute to Sarah and how very sad to hear this.

    I'm loving your stunning wreath in kraft too.

    Clio too has an advent calendar, but Whisper used to have one every year too, if she didn't get one, she would get the hump !! I hope Suzy is liking hers ?
