White stash!

Finally found some 'ME' time yesterday and then sadly discovered the mojo had gone walkabout!

With creative ideas sadly lacking I thought I'd best stick to CAS cards as simple layouts were all that my brain cells would manage.

And it also gave me a chance to use up some of the smaller pieces of pearl card laying about - cuttlebug to the rescue, some dies and embossing folders and a bit of glitter and so began a Christmas card making session.

Two cards to share - one tent card, one square, same basic design just using different die cut trees and sentiments.

The punched out glittery snowflake was not intended originally -  but there was a dirty mark on the embossed piece which I didn't notice until I stuck the other bits on - happily the little glittery flake covered up my smudgy sins!

The sentiments were stamped using Stone Gray Stazon - I treated myself to a little PB stamp set this week and these were included in the set. 

Challenges -
Charisma - WOW
Aud Sentiments - Christmas Sentiment
Allsorts - Treemendous
Craftin Boutique - Anything Goes
Nutcrafters - Lots of Layers
Crafting Musketeers - Christmas
Pixie's Playground - Snippets

These are the first of quite a few done yesterday so am feeling rather smug as for once I am getting myself organised! Whether it will last or not is a different matter!!
Thanks for calling in today - hope you're all having a great weekend. x

Everyone asking me about the die for the larger top card - it's a Memory Box one called - would you believe - 'Twiggy Tree'!! LOL

Hi Viv

Lovely to find a bit of "me" time! I think you put it to fantastic use.

Fabby makes .. .. especially the sparkly torn edges.

I don't think Mr Mojo has gone anywhere!!

Hope you are well and having a good weekend.

Isn`t it a pain when you finally get some time and Mr Mojo goes walkabout? Not that you`d notice, these are both fab. Love all the white and the glittered torn edges. Thanks for sharing.

Your cards are absolutely beautiful Viv, I love white on white. You did a great job with the added texture and glitter.

Di said...

Two fabby cards Viv. That's a kick in the rear end for me to bite the bullet and give white on white a serious whirl. They look so classy, love both the trees and the tron 'snowy hills' are great.

Hugs, Di xx

MaryH said...

Wow! It would be difficult to chose which of these beauties I like best. Enjoyed the clever use you made of the different dies, tearing the paper, and keeping it all white! Read with a smile about the snowflake addition...makes me feel better about my own 'opportunities'. The snowflake was perfect on this card. Really loved the white on white theme. TFS & Hugs
