And I've also managed to make a Christmas card for a couple of challenges - so pleased too as I didn't think I was going to make it. The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays - CFC30 it to use a tic-tac-toe grid and make a card based on the line you've picked. And I've used the layout from the current Clean & Simple - FTL169 sketch.
I've picked the middle line of the tic-tac-toe grid - and I've gone for a very literal interpretation of the sketch. I started off by stamping some green chevrons onto kraft card and then cutting out a triangle using my trusty nesties!!! Voila - a Christmas tree! I randomly stamped some holly leaves onto the card base. Next I made the sentiment label, first cutting out a pearly green mat and then a kraft oval onto which I stamped a sentiment and some more holly leaves. I coloured the berries with Sakura Stardust - so they have a really pretty shimmer. I like this card - and might make a few more.

Kathryn and I went into Mold this afternoon after school. Kathryn had to have an official passport photo taken. And while there I took a few photos of the town looking so pretty and Christmassy! And very, very cold this evening too!
Tom as Widow Twanky in the school production of Aladdin - he had a great time!
Kathryn in the middle - dressed in the tunic she got from Mumbai.
Mold Town Centre at dusk - so pretty!
It's time to come to a close now and go get some dinner. I'll be back again tomorrow with a couple more cards for you - I'm busy trying to catch up with some challenges. Take care.
