More festive Friday fun.

Hello all!
    There's a definite nip to the early mornings now and with September coming to an end, it may well be a good time to start thinking about those Christmas cards!  Our usual end of the month challenge over at The Outlawz Alcohol Markers DT offers an 'Anything Goes' challenge with a Christmas twist and if you enter this month, you get the chance to win 5 digis from DigiStamps4Joy !  Now you surely don't need any more reasons to join in?
         I kept my card CAS again and used a digi from Meijen's Designs.  A quick dash of colour from my Copics and a couple of scraps of cardstock, a stamped sentiment and some gems and I was done! I do love CAS style but there's another reason for keeping it simple - when it comes to postage, especially overseas, the thick and bulky cards cost an absolute bomb to mail!!  I have a lot of overseas mailing to do as we're not going back to England this year for Christmas - boo hoo :( , so I need to keep the cards flat.

     I would like to enter this in to the challenges at - Through the Craft Room Door , Simon Says Wednesday challenge , Addicted to Stamps and More , 4 Krafty Girlz and Bearly Mine.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Just adorable!!! Adorable image. Another adorable CAS card. Still in Texas my SIL is doing better today, they did not think the brain tumor was as big as it was, so going to take longer to get better and she has to go to rehub for several weeks.
Hugs, Pat

Sorry you can't go back to England for Christmas this year. You can come out to visit us in Arizona and have a snow-less Christmas, if you want. ;^) It actually wasn't too hard to get used to the Christmas weather here after spending 5 of them in Georgia in the '70's.
Love your design on this, especially the way you have the hanger going over the top of the card--so clever! :^) Wonderful coloring, love the bit of DP & ribbon and your color palette! :^)
Hugs, Penny
Have a great weekend!

Perfect Christmas card - just the right amount of fun, colors, and weight - LOL! This is amazing - you have such wonderful design and coloring skills. Every card you do makes me want to rush off and buy the image so I have to be very careful when I come visit you! So sad you are not going home for Christmas but maybe now you can decorate here even more - I know your Christmas decorating skills have got to be amazing! Hugz!
