Afternoon folks, thanks for calling round.
I hope you haven't been washed away or snowed in by the extremes of the weather we are having at the moment. Blog friends in central US appear to be freezing or under feet of snow while here the rain continues to fall, well actually as I write the sun has come out so hopefully we are past the worst.
After the hectic Tuesday and a trip to my son's on Wednesday I'm pleased to say that -
a) Chris has gas even if the road and drive look like the Somme battlefield.
b) He has internet after the nice young man from Virgin checked the system out and proclaimed the gasmen hadn't cut him off it was the new box that was more sensitive to the pile of wire spaghetti under our floor than the old one.
c) We have electric after a very dark Tuesday!
So I've been busy catching up on my commenting and only just got around to making this morning.
There is definitely a festive feel around blogland at the moment. As I checked my card stash I realized that a lot of my cards were too thick to post so I better embrace the OL theme and get some made pronto.
I made this with a few challenges in mind -
Over at Muse Therese's card was the main inspiration. This is her card.
I went with the shape of the tree, and as Therese herself says went with my inner Ardyth with this paired down CAS card.
The triangle from a Sizzix leafy tree set was stamped on black with Versamark then embossed with gold fine detail powder. I was thinking what to do about a pot and/or greeting when I remembered my little Woodware greeting - perfect I think.
I shall enter the challenges over at -
City Crafter Challenge - CAS Christmas OLC
That's about it, thanks for stopping by, come back soon.
