CAS Christmas Card Challenge

Hello crafty friends, I hope your Thursday is going well, it will be the weekend soon! I am taking off for the weekend and having a little get-away. Bret will be holding down the fort as well as the dogs. I'm anxious to get away just for a few days. So keeping this post short and sweet for once as I have much to do yet before I leave at noon tomorrow.



But before I left, I wanted to jump in and join the CAS Christmas Card Challenge. I wanted to join in on another of the CAS challenge, but time isn't allowing. The prompt word as you can see is "wreath". I hope my card is CAS-if not please delete it Loll. I had fun playing with the wreath builder stencil, but didn't use it for this wreath. A snippet from my ever growing pile was used as well. As always the recipe will be below. I thank you for your visit and your comments bring so much sunshine to my life. Especially this year as all it has done is rain, rain, rain. More rain in our forecast for 3 days next week, Mon-Wed and fall temps. Usually Sept is sunny and perfect temps, but not this year! Not much of a summer at all, so sad about that. Anyway I will be back on Monday and will catch up on my commenting once back home. Have a great weekend my crafty friends!



Crafty,

Hi Brenda. Love your beautiful wreath with the pretty shades of green. Great idea to add a garland along the bottom with the same images. Always nice to use up snippets of patterned paper, and the green with white polka-dots looks wonderful with your design. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas. Have a wonderful, fun, and relaxing few days away! xx

Your wreath, your design, and that sediment are all beautiful, Brenda! It's a WOW card!! I hope you are having a great get-away, as we speak and that you come home refreshed! I know Bret will do a wonderful job, but those pups are going to miss you! Make sure you are sitting on something solid so they don't bowl you over when they first see you!! Hugs, Auntie Darnell

It looks very CAS to me! What a beautiful wreath, love that you've used the different greens to create the depth and of course the little gold ribbon looks perfect. Also love the repeated border design. The green & white dots border is another pretty detail! Hope you have a fun little trip and relax and rest. Take care. TFS & Big hugs.

Oh Brenda, I'm so happy you got to have a mini vacation all to yourself. The dogs will miss you, especially Savannah. This is a beautiful wreath and I love how you used several colors on it. That really makes it stand out. The polka dot paper and greenery across the bottom added interest to the card too.

What a lovely card Brenda and I love all those soothing shades of green. I really like the spotty paper strip down the side and the gold bow is a perfect finishing touch. I hope you enjoyed your time away and that you cold is getting better. Did you find some dry weather on your trip?
Hugs
