CAS cards.

Good evening blogger friends.

I seem to have been away from blog land for so long but its lovely being back with a post. I had a craft fayre on Saturday and it has taken me so long to prepare for it. I am a devil for not decorating the inside of my cards as I make them which has meant that I have had to spend hours decorating the insides of about 30 cards as well as making boxes for them all. Lesson Learned!!!
It was my first craft fayre and I am really chuffed with how well I did. Itching to do some more but I don't think I will manage it before Christmas. Will have to do some researching as to when and where they are.
I have made some decisions this week which has resulted in me sadly saying goodbye to two of my Design Teams. Life has been a bit of a roller coaster since Russ went into hospital and as you know we now have a grand daughter and because they live away - we spend a lot of time travelling. They were wonderful Design Teams to be part of  and I would like to say a big thank you for inviting me. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them and have I have met some wonderful teamies whom I will hopefully still see in blogland.
I have made a selection of CAS cards. I took some similar to the craft fayre and they were well received so I made some more.
All the papers are from Pink Petticoat apart from the red cards which are made from a LOTV paper pack. I just thought I would mention  - LOTV have got a 20% sale on until midday tomorrow.
The sparkly wool is from my own stash. The Kraft card is from Anne Marie Designs.
I just sneaked another card in on the left which is not a Christmas card. So simple but very effective I think.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Allsorts Challenge - Inspired by a Christmas Carol/Song (Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow)
Stampin for the weekend - Feeling Festive
Sketchy Colours - Red/Green
Totally Gorjuss - Snows the way to go
Make it Monday

Have a wonderful week and I will see you all later when I visit your lovely blogs.

What a gorgeous collection of cards Sharon! I love the kraft one! I find the inside of my cards
harder to decorate than the outside...& finding verses for them drives me crazy!

These are fabulous Christmas cards! I bet these all sold on your sale! I am sorry to hear you stepped down from 2 DT. I did the same thing and the relief off your shoulders is a plus. I am still praying for your husband!! I love your little grand baby, so fun at this tiny age! Take care and see you around here soon!

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Sharon! I have missed you. I'm sorry to hear about your husband being in the hospital, and am sending healing thoughts and prayers his way. So happy your grandchild is healthy and doing well.

Your DTs will miss you sorely, but sometimes we all over commit - The craft fayres sound like fun, and I'm sure your projects sell well. Who would not be delighted to receive one?

Please take care - Happy Christmas to you!
