X-mas Games !


Well for a change it's sunny - only the last 2 days, when i have gone to pick H up at 3.30pm, it has chucked down with rain and then dried up like nothing had happened !!

Ok i'll admit it now, i'm not quite sure about this card as i don't really do CAS (as i so love my DP's and following a sketch), but thought i would give it a whirl, as there are a couple of challenges around - the trees are PB - 'Starlit' and like the snowflakes has been heat embossed with WOW - 'White Pearl', the snowflakes and sentiment are PB - 'Crystalline' / transparent set, dry embossing CB - 'Snow', the snow on the mountain is 'Aleen's True Snow', and i've distressed it with Tim Holtz - 'Faded Jeans' to break up the white.
