Christmas Challenge Inspiration

A few more CAS CHRISTMAS cards,  from a couple of our lovely ACN ladies for our challenge this month. Aren’t they beautiful? Gail has embossed her layers which has huge impact on a CAS card, and Kren has used  color and pattern while keeping embellishments to a minimum to maximize visual interest in her CAS card! GAIL using Vintage Christmas Stocking KREN using Holiday Door and I’ve made a CAS card with my vintage style SANTA adding a simple punched border… Come join in our CAS Christmas challenge! And don’t forget you can pick up your FREE DIGI IMAGE HERE. Have fun crafting and enjoy the Holiday Season!! Hugs, and happiness to you and your families, Deena

Vintage Books Book Plate Digital Sheet

How is everyone today?  It is Cccooold here in Montreal!!  What do you like to do when you don’t feel like going outside? Aside from browsing your favourite blogs and crafting, of course!  I like to read!! Well, I like to read when I can make the time which was very difficult for me to find this past year.  This year I am making time! It is one of my New Year’s resolutions to READ MORE!  There are so many books I want to read and reread for that matter!  Currently I am re-reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I was 16 when I first read it, so I wanted to see what I would think of it now that I’ve lived a little!    What are you reading? Today I wanted to share these BOOK PLATES that I made.  Do you share your books?  If you do, you might like to make sure you get them back and a great way to do that is to place a book plate in the front or …

Freebie reminder!

I hope you all had a great holiday!  My boys are back in school after their two week break and all was very quiet in the house today!  I missed them! Who’d have thought?! 🙂  We all had a great break from the everyday schedules, but the Holidays were busy for us too, as we had a lot of family/friends over at different times.  We went to a great NEW YEAR’s party too!   Lots of fun and good food, but I have to admit, I’m exhausted!   We’ve had A LOT of snow this winter so far! What’s the weather like where you live? And it’s snowing again as I write this…I really hope it’s not a long winter… Anyway, I just wanted to let you know if you hadn’t noticed already, that I changed the FREEBIE for JANUARY and it’s available HERE.   Enjoy!   And don’t miss this month’s CHALLENGE: blue, beige and white!  See the sticky post at the top of my blog.
