Deck the Halls

Hi Peeps!
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
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - 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.
