Back in the Craft Room and 12 Days of Christmas Sale Coming Soon!

Happy Black Friday!!!

I did it!  I made it back into my crafty space this week for a bit, and it felt so good!  I wanted to be very non-committal with this visit, so I checked out the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge to see what kind of clean and simple card I could make without a lot of fuss.  What a great time for them to have a number challenge!  EIGHT is the key in this creation...eight of anything I choose....so I chose a fantastic retired Close to My Heart My Acrylix stamp set called December Word Puzzle, and soon had eight cute trees stamped on a rolling hillside.  :)


My trees are stamped in a variation of first and second generation stamping with the Close to My Heart colors Pear, Sweet Leaf, Olive, Topiary, and New England Ivy.

The eight yellow sequins were my answer to the ever nagging sparkle question...that is...how can I add some sparkle to this card!?


This adorable rolling sentiment is stamped in Ruby Ink and makes the perfect line to follow with a torn-paper snow covered hill.  A strip of Topiary CS and matching paper bow were the final touches! 


I am also linking this one up with Simon Says Stamp for their Anything Goes Challenge!  :)

It felt so good to get crafty again, and the hubs is doing well with his rehab and restrictions for his new hip, so I hope to be in my craft cave again soon!  Like, today!  ;)

So, where is my Black Friday sale, you ask?  Well, there isn't one this year for many reasons, but don't stop reading yet!  Why have a one-day sale, when you can have TWELVE DAYS of fantastic Close to My Heart freebies!!!!  You will definitely want to tune in on Sunday, December 1st for the first of my 12 Days of Christmas Sale!  You won't want to miss a day!
