Two cards for a two weeker....


Hurrah for Friday-Eve! Is it wrong to look forward to the weekend so I can spend it unpacking more boxes in our new home?

Let's kick off this winter weekend with a shiny, new, festive CASE Study to indulge in:

Ready to study? I hope so! Time to hit the books by getting some inspiration from this card of Windy Robinson's:

Check out the original post of this card here.

Red and green - my favourite colours for a Christmas card (I'm a traditional kinda gal when it comes to the season). From my past cards you may be thinking that I took inspiration from those bells and got jingly again, but in fact I was inspired purely by the colours and the dots. Lots of dots!

The perfect excuse to whip up a couple of super simple cards with my new favourite die methinks:



Now this week's CASE Study is extended. It's a two weeker so it seems kinda fitting that I've made two cards for the fortnight *wink*

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT whipped up for you this fortnight too - it'll be like all of your Christmases have come at once! :)

And I hope you can ink along with us. Think of it as the perfect excuse to whip up that extra festive card for the season *wink*

Right - the broadband is due to be up and ready at our new place from Monday. Hurrah! So we should be back to my regular blogging schedule/stalking as of next week (fingers crossed!).

Now I'm off to find my address book. Typical me: I get my cards made in plenty of time and then lose my address book in a box so I can't post them! Ha!

Thank you so much for visiting today - I always appreciate your visits :)

Catch ya later!

How did you get the dots on? I have the Joy die from Memory Box and would love to make some Xmas cards with dots. Love them!!

All it takes is a great die and some festive colors to make simple CAS 'em!

It's a die? Love! This looks perfect for mass creation :) I hope the move went smooth and you were able to find your address book. It would be a pity if these pretties don't get the attention they deserve :)
