CAS Christmas



I have a misery report today:  I'm sure my blogging pals have all been wondering where I've been. I am so sick with allergies and haven't felt like making a card or anything else. It is the time for my seasonal allergies and I have been on the sofa most of the week. I have heard that the Tennessee Valley is one of the worst areas for allergies and I believe it. I can't wait for Friday because I have a doctor's appt. Maybe he can at least help me with my cough.

This week the CASology cue word is Night. I am sure there are many ways to make a night card. I am needing a few more Christmas cards so that is the direction I took.

I used a star punch from EK Success/Paper Shapers and layered gold mirror paper underneath. The sentiment is Inkadinkado/Adore Him. The paper is Stampin'Up! Night of Navy and PTI white cardstock.

This is SO striking, Benzi!! So sorry to hear about your allergies. No fun. I hope you find some relief soon. And I'm so sorry I haven't been around to visit much recently. I've been so crazy busy around here recently and there hasn't been much time for crafting or blogging or blog hopping. It was lovely to drop in on you today, though!

Feel better soon!

Oh I hope you feel better soon. I have year around allergies ~ allergic to life, lol. I have to take a claritan-d everyday just to function. I hope the doctor can prescribe something that works well!!!

Love this card and the colors are so beautiful together.
