CAS Christmas

Hello Everyone,
This time around I am here to share with you a CAS Christmas Card.
I realized with all the dramas that have been going on in my life this year I am way behind on my Christmas Card making.  I definitely do not want to end up with the bulk to do at the end of the year.  So I jumped online to see what was happening at my favourite challenge sites.

I loved the sketch this week over at the CAS(E) this Sketch site and then I found that Christmas Cards all Year Round had a challenge to include flowers.  So I dug through my stash of Christmas Supplies and found what I was looking for. And this is the card I came up with.

Christmas 1 April 2017

All of the supplies are from Kasiercraft Christmas Carol Paper set and Embellishments Pack.  With the sketch I made it in Landscape and I loved this Poinsettia Wreath and the sentiment from the Embellishment Pack.  Sometimes it is nice to craft simply but it was quite hard for me not to add more layers and stuff.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my Blog to have a look at my project. I would really appreciate it if you would leave a like and even a comment.  My wish for you is that you find time to do something that you truly love.

Until Next Time,
My Name

Christmas Card All Year Round – April 2017 – Flowers


2016 … a complete write off

Hello Everyone,

Oh what a year it has been. As you can see I didn’t get to upload anymore after my previous post. A lot has been happening in my personal world, the main one being sickness. I am still not 100% over everything and I know that in 2017 I am going to have to have an operation.  Its not something that I want but its needed; which will mean recovery time and down time for me.

I know that I am so grateful for the love of my Hubby and my kids.  They have gotten me through this 2nd half of 2016.  Plus all of the well wishes and prayers that have come my way from Family and friends.

Next year I truly hope that things will go better. I definitely hope to be able to post more on here in the coming year and I wont have to post another “Where have I been” post.


As I write this post we are only a couple of weeks away from Christmas.  I would like to wish you and your family a wonderful, happy, blessed and safe Christmas. I pray that in 2017 we all have time to be with our family and friends and to also have time to craft and relax.

Magic and Wonder

Hello Everyone,
Here is my 2nd upload for the day.
This time I have gone back to being in Christmas Time.
But I get to be there all through the year as I craft Christmas stuff all the time.

Magic WonderThis time around I have used a Digi Stamp from All That Scraps and it is “Swiss Pixie Angel & Baby Jesus“.  This is one of my favourite Digis to use for Christmas cards.  I have used my card program to make the background which I am really happy with how it all turned out.  I have coloured the Digi part of the image with my Copics but I have put some Diamond Stickles on the Angels’ wings.

Magic Wonder InsideOn both the inside and the outside I have used the same papers.  All of these papers are from my Christmas Paper stash which I know I still have some in there from 201o.  I am getting through them but during the year I am glad to have them because sometimes finding paper during the year can be a little hard.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and looking at my creations.  To let me know that you stopped on by today why not leave me a comment below.  I love to hear what people think of my creations – feedback is how I improve my craft.  And finally my prayer for you is that you find yourself doing something you love.

Hugs & Blessings Always
