A wreath...two ways!!

Morning all, I hope you are raring to go at the start of a new week!! I am back to work today following a week of Annual Leave, so not much enthusiasm from this end!!

Anyway to cheer myself up on my last day off, I sneaked off to my work room yesterday and had a crafty session and made these.....





Right from the launch of Darnell's "twofer"card  challenge  I have had good intentions of joining in (to challenge myself actually) and for one reason or other have never managed it. I have now put that right!! The theme this month is Wreath  and as I appear to I have many wreath stamp sets it was the perfect chance to play along. I chose one from a Cats Pajamas set. Both wreaths were heat embossed with coloured powders and embellished just a teeny tiny bit...which was sooooo hard!! Like many of you, I expect, CAS is a style that I struggle with but, on this occasion, I was delighted with the outcome!!

Well that is me for today. I hope whatever the week has in store for you it will allow some crafty time. I am on Mollie duty tomorrow so am looking forward to that.

See you later in the week, I hope xx

These are super and very CAS, the pink and turquoise look so happy together. The little sprig of holly and berries is a lovely finishing touch. Two great cards Sarah in a very different style x

I would never know CAS was difficult for you looking at these two perfectly CASlicious cards, Sarah! It's a fun easy-flowing wreath that can be dressed up for any occasion, which makes it extremely versatile! It's beautiful on both your flowery birthday card and your sweet holly Christmas card!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #11! I'm glad you had time with your leave to finally join in and I hope we see you back often!! Hugs, Darnell
