Sparkle and Shine at IAAS

Good morning.  Here I am with my third card in three days.  This time, as you can see, it is time to sparkle for IAAS. This time the challenge will run for four weeks to give the DT a chance to spend time with family and friends over the Christmas season.

If you are looking for my card for the Christmas Card Club challenge please scroll down to previous post.

My Card

centre step card die -  Press Cut 
silver non-shed glitter card - Crafters Companion
silver mirri card - Crafters Companion
candle die - Winter Wonderland collection Crafters Companion
holly corner dies - Joanna Sheen
sentiment die - Britannia

I think the card pretty much speaks for itself - it is just a very sparkly CAS card.

Well that's it from today.  We are having visitors today so I need to wrap up their gift and sort out a Christmas card! Nothing like being last minute!!

Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Something Cute For Christmas Card Club.

Good morning.  Today is our little club's final post of 2018, but we'll back again on January 6th starting our cards for 2019.  This is a terrific way of getting your Christmas cards made throughout the year and therefore not panicking as December approaches.  If you are interested in joining us next year just let me know and I'll give you the information required.

My card is not due until tomorrow but I have a card due for one of my design teams and I don't like posting two on the same day.

Sylvia is our host this time and she wants to see something cute.  I have chosen an LOTV topper.

My Card

6" square white base card
red non shed glitter card - Hobbycraft

music die  - Memory Box
sentiment die  - Sue Wilson

It was our WI Christmas Party on Wednesday evening.  We had a fabulous evening! We always put on a little show with members taking part - funny skits, poems, songs etc.Oh my goodness, we were crying with laughter when two of our members gave a Demonstration of Seasonal Makeup Advice.  One of them was working just her arms from behind a screen.  Apparently it proved even more difficult than you might suppose because they were both rather large bosomed ladies!! Absolutely hilarious!  

We also combined it with a 90th birthday celebration for one of our ladies who was actually 90 that very day. My goodness I only hope I am like her if I ever reach that age.  Her skin is absolutely beautiful (certainly didn't need Christine and Eileen's advice!), she is very spry  and still has a wonderful singing voice.  She was a professional singer and still has a wonderful singing voice and performed two songs for us. Amazing. We are a very disparate group I can assure you.  Oldest member 90, youngest member 30, we have a professional artist and also a titled lady who is in her forties.  I am so glad I joined the WI.  We just have so much fun - definitely not what you might imagine when you think of the WI ... lol!

Anyway, I have waffled enough. I hope you all have a good weekend.

Take care.
