Totally Gorjuss 157 - Pastel Christmas.

Good morning everyone and since we're getting ever closer to Christmas and I'm up to my ears in Christmas cards this challenge is right up my street. Hopefully lots of you will find it useful too and join us this week. This week we're sponsored by Crafter's Companion. They've usually got some good offers so it wouldn't be difficult to spend your prize voucher.

I had an idea for a quick card. Well it had to be a quick card because I was rather late getting round to making it. I've lost two evening this week to meetings and was out all day meeting my friend. She lives in Lanarkshire and I'm in Aberdeenshire so we decided to meet at Dobbies in Perth. Unfortunately the traffic in Aberdeen was horrendous so I had to text her from Dundee to say I was running half an hour late! I was lucky it was only half an hour as when I reached Aberdeen I sat in a queue for 45 minutes to go about half a mile. Altogether to get through Aberdeen took about an hour and twenty minutes. This is ridiculous as at a quieter time of day it takes an awful lot less time. All I can say is that the clowns who object to the Aberdeen city bypass don't have to drive through Aberdeen!!

Anyway enough waffle. Here's my card and it's not a very good one from me this week. Luckily my talented teamies have made gorgeous cards to inspire you.

I used :-
Spellbinders 2012 Holiday Tree.
Sentiment :- Cheery Lynn.
Tree and sentiment embossed with Stampendous shabby white embossing enamel.

It was really fiddly trying to heat the embossing enamel. I put the tree and the sentiment on a sheet of paper and heated from underneath. The paper got a wee bit singed but the embossing worked!

Thanks for looking and if I find any challenges to enter I'll come back later and add them.

  3. Hi Kat, I think you picked the wrong die for a quick card. I love that die but I have endless trouble getting it out the die, but saying that this card is so sweet, love it.
