Saturday Slot

This week is a colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches, but with a twist - a Christmas card using any of the past colour combos. And at Time Out we're being asked to CASE a card by Amy Wanford.        Grab Our Badge!

I chose #86 for my entry.

And picked up on the shape, layers and one of the groups of three from Amy's card.

I used my brand new stamp set from Uniko Studio bought with some of my prize money from way back in September. I am so smitten with this tree and my card came together so quickly I made another....

 and then another....

Wish I could say the same for the photos. It's so dark and gloomy here today I was really struggling to get enough light anywhere in the house and had to resort to dragging a table across the door of the conservatory. And still the embossed doves on the last card hardly show!

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Rustic Christmas
Card 1:
Inks: SU, cherry cobbler & night of navy
Card: vanilla linen from my stash
Card 2:
Inks: SU, cherry cobbler & old olive
Paper: Paper Cellar, squares
Card 3: 
Ink: Memento, rich cocoa; Versamark
Embossing: Personal Impressions, mirror gold
Card: gold mirri board from my stash

I'm also sharing my December Daily pages for 3rd, always going to be at least two days late because I have to live the day, then make my pages and take photos the next day before sharing with you on the third or fourth day - or maybe even later as the month progresses and things start to happen!

So here's the pages as they are in my album

And a closer look at the journalling:

And the evidence of all that internet ordering. And if you think that looks bad you should see the floor!

And that little sequin pocket insert which can be seen from both sides and even more exciting, because I hadn't planned this, it peeks out between tomorrow's pages too!

Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today. I hope you found something to inspire and here's sending you some Christmas sparkle.
