CAS Greetings

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down one post 
or click HERE to see my easy and elegant Christmas card.

Hello all!  Thanks for your encouraging comments earlier today, in response to my Christmas-time stress.  I know I'm not alone with feeling overwhelmed!  ;-)

Still needing some Christmas cards, and I'm trying to make 'em clean and simple so they go faster.  Here's a CAS card that is easily mailed, too.  It's flat except for the little gem.



I used the sets Holiday Ornaments and Festive Frames (for the sentiment) by Inspired By Stamping in different shades of red and blue, then applied crystal glitter on each.  Maybe you can see it better in the photo below:


I'm entering these challenges:

  • Addicted to CAS - Baubles (this is a new challenge to me and I'm excited to play there!)

And speaking of baubles....I bought some new mercury glass ornaments this year at Tuesday Morning and TJ Maxx.  Here's one that hangs from the bottom of my pewter chandelier:


Soon I hope to have new photos to share on my other blog, bleu hydrangea, but need to edit them first.  I'll let you know when the new post is ready!

I appreciate you coming by today, and thanks to all of my new followers.  I'm so glad you think enough of my work to put yourself on my sidebar.  :-)

This is beautifully CAS, Colleen. I love this type of card for filler between the more involved creations. Very cute!

A sweet little card with just the right amount of sparkle for my taste.
Now to that bauble - WOW!! It's beautiful, really beautiful. I wonder if our TK Maxx is the same place as your shop? They sell amazing ornaments at this time of year too.
Cool head now Colleen - deep breaths and all that 'stuff' and you'll be fine I'm absolutely sure! Good luck with the job hunt too.
Have a wonderful weekend and try to find some 'you' time.
