Be Merry!

Hello lovely people,

I really really did intend to post earlier this week but gosh, the time has flown by and clearly I didn't get around to it.

Given my ongoing cries of 'there's not enough time in the day', especially now I am back at work, I have decided to step down from the AYLI team so this will be my last challenge with them.  I'm so sad to leave and huge thanks to each and every DT member for being wonderful teamies :-)


So, for my very last challenge (sob sob) at As You Like It we have the theme of...

YOUR FAVOURITE...CHRISTMAS COLOURS
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Digi Stamp Boutique with a £10 voucher

I have several favourite colour combos for Christmas and tend to choose based on the style of project I am making and any image I am using.
But, I think my favourite is blue and brown as it is simultaneously elegant yet cosy, and it suits lots of styles...today it's CAS style!

CAS Christmas card with triple embossed sentiment and holly

I tried out triple embossing for the sentiment and holly leaves and was delighted with how they turned out; the photos definitely don't do them justice!

The papers are totally scrummy too and, since I try to go for slightly quicker designs for my Christmas cards, there's no stitching but I did add a pierced border on one layer.

I hope you will pop over to As You Like It and check out the fabulously creative projects from the rest of the team :-)

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,
