Wishing ......


This is going to be a very quick posting, as i'm off to the cinema this afternoon (H is at after school care) to watch 'Les Miserables' at 1pm - Alan didn't want to go and see it and i couldn't find a time when my friend Celia and i were both free and had babysitters !!! Alan gave me a huge card this morning and was going to buy me a necklace, but the only one they had left was on display and they wouldn't sell it to him !!!, and H wants to know where his card and chocolates are ?? - that's 6 year olds for you, thinks he's missing out on chocolate !!!

Today's card is based on a card by Lols 'S is for Shaped' from 2011 as the ABC Christmas Challenge where 'C is for CASE' - i loved the idea of making a circle card into a bauble and i thought the image (PB - 'Wishing .....', i've used glamour dust for the snow and have put glossy accents on the baubles) and papers (Echo Park -'Season's Greetings') were perfectly together, i've distressed the edge of the image with 'Tumbled Glass' and used Stickles 'Ice Crystals' round the edge of the scallop, star brad is from an old Papermania set.

Today's Card And Challenges :

ABC Christmas  - where 'C is for CASE'

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Get In Shape'

Sparkles Christmas - where Challenge No: 25 is 'Anything Goes'

And Lols card, that i 'CASED'

Image - Penny Black - 'Wishing ......'
Paper - Echo Park - 'Season's Greetings'
