Off The Edge (Not Me Though!)

Hello there, 

How are you all doing? Good I hope.

I promised myself that I would enter the CAS challenge this month over at 'CAS MixUp Card Challenge.'  I just made it by the skin of my teeth last month, so I've managed to get there a little earlier this time!  Here's the card that I've made:

Those who know me well will know that I struggle with CAS cards, so I actually enjoy challenging myself to make something a little different to my usual type of card.  As Christmas is almost upon us, I decided that I would make an extra card for the occasion, as I usually find that I don't have enough when it comes to the time when I need them.  The poinsettia stamp that I've used is by Crafty Individuals and I've water coloured it using Adirondack and Impress inks. The sentiment was a freebie from a craft show that I went to a couple of years back.  I've use a Tim Holtz die in the opposite corner to balance everything up.  

Right then, that's all from me for today and I hope to be back again with you all very soon.  Wishing you all a very happy and colourful weekend xx

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

WOW! Gorgeous colouring of your poinsettia. They have do much beautiful shading and dimension. I feel as though I could reach out and touch them. Love the design with the pretty shaped die in the opposite corner. Doesn't look like you struggle with CAS at all!! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

Hi Sandra,
I am back with my DT hat on this time.
Sorry I didn't mention about the challenge when I was here last time I didn't think you entered challenges.
I had my dumb hat on because of course you were entering the CAS Mixed Up Challenge.
Just put it down to a very senior moment.
As I said I love your CAS Design and of course those poinsettias are so pretty and a beautiful colour also.
Thank you for joining the MAWTT Challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
