Post Black Friday

I've survived another Black Friday - actually it wasn't really bad at all.
Mostly because I don't get up in the middle of the night for those
major deals LOL...    I'm happy with my regular sale things
and shop later in the day - works for me as I'm not looking
for any of those big ticket items.
Anyway - more CAS cards to share. 
Keeping it simple as they all have to go in the mail.
This little snowman can't quite get a grip on his skating abilities.
He's from Whipper Snapper - colored with Copics and
highlighted with glitter - the embossing folder is Darice.

These trees are from Stampin' Up and I have resisted getting
them for a long time as I'm not a fan of the rest of the set....
They are really beautiful trees though.
They're both done by masking off an area - sponging, then stamping.
The bottom gold tree was embossed.
The Merry Christmas greeting is from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
Inks used are Memento & Stampin' Up

I just love these little images from A Muse Art Stamps.
The little bird fits perfectly on top of the car.
Colored with Copics - highlighted with lots of
microfine glitter and popped onto a Spellbinder ornament die.
Hope you've enjoyed my keepin' it simple cards.

Gift Card Purses

Here are a couple of gift card purses for holding
either a gift card, candy or other small gift.
 Check under my Templates section to see the instructions for the purses.
They are so easy to make and look so elegant when finished.
I'm off to do my Black Friday shopping to find some things to fill these up!
I used the "bow maker" die from Sizzix - so so so so simple!!!
Just love the polka dot CS and the pretty lime green color. 
The bow and other parts are done with glitter paper from Recollections.

This one has a few different elements.  
Beautiful ribbon from SU
a Darice embossing folder
A pretty SU border punch
Dies from SU
Scor-tape and microfine glitter
and a silver star from an old stash recently found!

Hope you like them.

Another CAS Christmas card

Here's another sweet Whipper Snapper image -
colored with Copics and highlighted with glitter.
The background CS is glittery too.  Popped the image up
using my Spellbinder dies.
Thanks for checkin' in with me.

Still keeping it CAS for now... big plans for later.

I'm not really lost

WOW - just looked at the date on my last post.  I know it's been a while, but didn't think it was that long!!!   I've been busy and my poor craft room has missed me.  I've been to Las Vegas, San Diego, Seattle, Maine & New York and back to San Diego & New York since then along with a Caribbean Cruise a couple of weeks ago.  AND - not done yet - back to NYC for our early Christmas with the kids the beginning of Dec.  YIKES!!!

Anyway - have a few things to post in the CAS mode to get back into the swing.

To start, here are a couple of Christmas ornaments and/or package decorations that I did last week.

This one is a take on the 2012 SU Christmas catalog cover... the center is a silk poinsettia.

Here's take 2 - this one was using glimmer cardstock from Recollections and a Prima flower for the center that's sprayed with shimmer mist and the edges are dredged in Sparkling Snow glitter.

These ornaments were made using the Spellbinder's Ornament Dies from a couple of years back - one with regular cardstock and the other with glimmer cardstock... they're fun and easy to make.  The tops are buttons from SU.
Hope you enjoyed these.
Back soon - really!!!
ps...  here's a quick overview of a teeny bit of my summer
