I am so out of the swing of things since my trip. I haven't gotten back into my regular routine. I've really been so tired I haven't felt like being in my room. Last night my husband asked if the carpet cleaner he used while I was gone was keeping me out of my room. Nope, just plain tired. But I am gearing up again. I actually made a CAS card tonight, thinking it would be quick. When will I ever learn? Simple cards are more difficult for me. Layering comes so naturally! Anyway, here it is:
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! It was very easy to work with and I have a couple more ideas to make additional cards. Perhaps they won't take as long as this one did since I will have already used this sketch!?! The ornament stamp is from Waltzingmouse, stamped with Versamark and embossed with Stampendous Red Tinsel. I stamped the image with Versamark a 2nd time and used a Spellbinders die to cut out the center section. I then used Stamp N Stuff Jeweled Gold to emboss the sentiment on the die cut. I used 3M foam tape to pop up this diecut atop the ornament. An Impression Obsession die was used for the bow, cut out of glittered Stampin Up cs. I used foam tape to pop it up, as well.
I am also entering the following challenges:
Christmas Cards all Year Round - Getting ready for Christmas
Crafting Musketeers - Christmas
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Christmas
Crafty Little Fairies - Christmas
Simon Says Stamp - Christmas
Thanks for stopping by! I need to go tend to Schmitzy, who had to be sedated for a procedure at the vet's office today. He's been having infections and the antibiotics aren't killing all the bugs. Poor guy was pitiful when I picked him ip today. Wish you could explain to them why these things have to be done. Makes me feel bad...:(
I'll be back tomorrow.
