Anything Goes with a Xmas twist.

Hello all!
Friday once again and as it's the last Friday of the month (where did half a year go???), that means it's time for The Outlawz  "Anything Goes" challenge with the optional twist of adding a Christmas card to the done pile.  Friday is the turn of the alcohol markers DT to host the challenge - if you haven't checked out The Outlawz yet, you really should - we have a different challenge every day and there's loads of fantastic inspiration for you to see!

                 So for my card I used a Kenny K Christmas digi and kept to the CAS style as I find it so much easier to do.  I love the fully loaded cards but I can't seem to pull them off - it takes me hours to put one together and I'm never truly happy with it.  CAS is the way for me for now and this card is very CAS!  Just the Copic coloured image, a strip of designer cardstock, a strip of washi tape and some cut out number pennants done with my Cameo.


I would like to enter this into the challenges at Kenny K's Krafty Krew , A.R.T , Addicted to Stamps and MoreSimon Says Stamp , Jingle Belles and QKR Stampede.

To me, your CAS cards are as gorgeous as any loaded card on the internet. I can't do them, that is why I admire yours so much. This card is stunning.

Hey Dawn, I'm not sure if I've told you this before, but you ROCK the CAS card!

You prove over and over again that a card can be simply about the image verses the papers and sketch collectively. I too struggle with the fully loaded cards and find myself somewhere in the middle. I have a tendency to lean toward the CAS, but was trying to do what the majority seem to do when I was on a DT. Now that I am no longer on one I am doing my own thing, which is exactly what you are doing and I love it! In fact, I just made a card for my Brit friends, and I think I saw it on your blog, not sure, but you will see which one I am talking about once I get it posted.

This image certainly needs to be front and centre, and I love how you've designed it. Terrific colouring as usual, and I am sure whomever gets this one will be totally blown away.

By the way...your package arrived yesterday and I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a lovely and very generous gift of your incredible talent. I will take a picture of it's new home asap!

I really need your email, so I don't ramble on your blog like this...thank you again, for your kindness and generosity. Let's connect svdow@hotmail.com

Fondly, S:)
