Busy days… busy nights…

Hello again everybody, it feels like a like while since I’ve posted here at the bloggo…
I find it so much harder to find time at this time of year for posting :( When the crafting rush picks up pace… plus there’s extra Christmas deadlines for work… evenings are darker so it’s impossible to get a decent photo…. Christmas fair organising to be done… Everything runs away with me a bit, but I have been trying to keep up with my blog reading and fitting in all of these things, so that is why posting here at my own blog has taken a little back seat – sorry folks :(

But here is a quick card to share for the new challenge at Chocoloate, Coffee, Cards: CCC#52 – Monochromatic….. and also at Oldie but a Goodie: CAS Christmas.
Well, it’s hard to make anything other than Christmas now, not only as stock to sell on my Christmas Fair stall, but also as I’ll need maybe 60 or 70 cards to send myself this year I think…
Here’s a quick CAS one to go to some overseas pals – a slim, easy-to-post one on the agenda then.

Christmas card challenge CAS monochrome CCC52 pink snowflakes glitter As you can see it was quite a nice bright morning here (for a change!!) We have had such a lot of gloomy days and drizzle lately – autumn is HERE alright! Ah well, I can stay in and get busy with my makes, even if it is depressingly hard to get any decent photos these days. I am glad to take advantage of a dry morning and get out to take a few pics today.

I have sheets in lots of colours, but can only bring myself to cut into them a bit at Christmas, I don’t know why. Glitter should be for all year long shouldn’t it, haha! So definitely an oldie-but-a-goodie stash item here ;)

Here’s another pic trying to capture that shimmer and sparkle, especially on a pearlescent card blank – love it:

That’s all then, thanks for stopping by as ever folks. Hope you manage to fit in some crafty time. I am off to the craft den now to get busy again! Rx
