CAS Christmas Cards

Good moring to you all. This card is very late I'm afraid.  It should have been posted last weekend for the Christmas Card Club. I knew it would be late but not his late so I apologise to the girls in the club, but particularly to Sylvie who was our host this time.  She gave us the simple "Anything Goes".

My Cards

I came upon this embossing folder lurking at the bottom of my box which hasn't been used for at least two years so I have remedied that. Two very simple cards in different colours. The e/f is from Couture Creations called A Magical Time. I just added a Spellbinders snowflake from Create A Flake 5 and popped some pearls on.

I have been so busy this last week or so with other crafting that I have had no time for cardmaking - 
and I missed it. I mentioned the other day that I had some panels to make for a WI wall hanging.  Well I managed to do three and I have one still in progress so I am pleased that they are almost behind me.  Mind you, we then have the task of putting it altogether with the wadding and backing etc.  I'll show the panels in a day or two.

Our internet connection has been very iffy the last few days and yesterday disappeared totally just after lunch.  We managed to get through to our internet provider eventually after being on hold for 45 minutes - a free call fortunately. John had tried  a couple of times earlier but he gets very impatient and only hung on for about 10 minutes.  Men!  I just put it on speaker and then went about my business until it was answered.  He didn't think of that!! In fact the music was really brilliant, which makes a change, so I was quite enjoying the range and bopping around the kitchen. I apologise for not visiting your blogs but it was just too arkward and I gave up.

Anyway that's it for now.  Hope you are all well.  Very big hugs to Mrs Duck who is suffering.  Get well soon chuck - as Mrs D  herself is wont to say!

Take care and enjoy your day.
