A CAS Christmas Card

Hello all you lovely jubbly people out there, how you all doing? Those who need hugs right now I'm sending MAHOOSIVE ones just for you ;-)
Ok so I have  CAS christmas card that I made for our postie-man, we really do have the best postman I think, nothing is ever too much trouble for him, he's awesome!
So I made a CAS card so I could put him his christmas tip in & wish him all the very best.

Now please bear with the piccies as some were hard to take.........I did try to capture the sparkle.
Ok so the paper I used I think is MME, but I cant truly remember :-(

The 'Snowflake' is a Spellbinders die which I've had...........well since this one was released, when ever that was lol.

Sorry about this pic it was done under different lighting conditions, I tried a few diff ones to capture the sparlkiness of this card.
Hopefully you can see the sparkle a wee bit better on this one. IRL it really was very sparkly & pretty, our postie loved it!!

The writing on the snowflake is from a Magnolia stamp which is actually a Christmas Carol 'Silent Night, Holy Night'. The glitter that is all over the snowflake is Tim Holtz 'Clear Rock Candy' Dry Glitter.
The sentiment is LOTV.

The red pearls I had didnt match the paper & that bugged me so I got a copic & coloured a cream pearl to match the paper............hey presto perfect match ;-)

Will be round later to visit you, been busy today having a good clean & sort out of bedrooms so off now to get some crafty time in.........Natalie permitting me lol.

Thank you soooooooo very much for your comments, they really do make me smile, each & every one does.
Take care lovelies & thanks for stopping by mmwah  xxxxx

Although this was made in 2014 I'm only now showing it on my blog. I have a couple of crimbo cards I havn't shown yet lol.

Challenges I'm Entering..........
