It's another Clean and Simple week at Addicted to Stamps, so embrace the freedom to make any kind of CAS project you like and share it with us!
I took the opportunity to make another card for the Christmas box this week and had a play with the branch of my Bird Builder punch. By snipping off the very ends of the branches and curving them round, I made a nice little wreath:
The berries were made using the smallest circle I have: the tiny pupil punches from my beady-eyed Owl Punch! The greeting was coloured in Old Olive and Real Red markers and stamped in the bottom. Add a few rhinestones and a couple of layers (yes, layers, on a CAS card!) and job done.
Stamps: Beautiful Season
Ink: Old Olive and Real Red markers
Card: Certainly Celery, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
Other: Owl Punch, Bird Builder Punch, stamp-a-ma-jig, rhinestones
I can play in the Snippets Playground with this as it is a mostly snippety make, including the tiny red berries. Do you think I'll get a prize for the smallest snippets? Maybe not, as I've put Di in a bad mood with all my talk of treehouses, campfires and Elf and Safety nightmares. Regardless of what the Head thinks, the wood for the treehouse has all arrived and we're midway through construction. I was thinking of adding a rope ladder for fun. In fact, I would really love to indulge my childhood dream of a huge network of treehouses and all the fun rope constructions that link them (think Robin Hood Men in Tights! Do I mean Men in Tights? No, Prince of Thieves!!).
My husband has taken a week's holiday this week so we can spend some time together, and much of that has been spent in the kitchen batch-cooking for the next few very busy weeks. We're prepared some really scrummy meals and if you play your cards right, I'll share some photos later on this week. Socks is certainly enjoying all the exciting smells and the odd titbit he is allowed, so much so he has to sleep a lot of it off:
Thanks for stopping by, my lovely blogland friends,
