I need to fess up here, this is NOT the card that I should have been posting today, but there was a slight hic-cup, caused in no small part by the entire family (except me!) being ill, and me not being as on top of things as I usually am... honestly, you'd think that I was a planner in real life, and should be organised with everything that is going on! oooooh... wait... that is what I do... bother!
Anyway, I hope to post the original card as a mid-way reminder next week, or maybe before if I can't wait :-D
I've gone a bit CAS today though (just wait til you see the very-not-CAS card that should have been making an appearance today!!). I'm loving embossing on Kraft - it looks fabulous and it you get a hot-spot it doesn't seem to notice as much as on pure white- not that I do that ever!! Also, as the festive season (and last posting dates) gets ever closer I think we all go a bit simpler, if nothing else, the postage costs of heavy cards are horrific when you are posting more than just one card!
I've used one of my oldest ever stamps - it's a wooden one and was one of the cheapest I ever bought, so it's a bit of a mare to stamp, but I still like it. I've used a Metallic black embossing powder with a hint of glitter. But a Snowflake it most certainly is!
Hope you are having a better week than me - it can only get better from here for me!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have time to play along with the challenge
