CAS Christmas Card

Hello everyone how are you all? Well its busy busy busy for everyone I think lol. I'm barely getting chance to craft let along blog, today has been the 1st time I've been on my blog since my last post. I've actually done some crafting today though as I have sooooooo many things still to make eeeekkkk!!!
Yeah panicking & getting stressed a wee bit now lol.
A good note though as on friday 13th we got our new van yayyyyy. We currently have a Renault Traffic with wheelchair access for Natalie, it has a ramp on the back to push her into the van. This I cannot do as she's sooooo heavy. However we have now got the Renault Master which is soooooo much bigger & has an electric tail-lift.........its so much bigger it doesnt go under our car port properly :0)
However its sooooo much better for Natalie, we took her out in it for the day on Sunday & I think she loved it more than us lol.

Anyhoo's I'm babbling on. I'm here with a CAS card...........yes me but its a case I must. This one is for the day-care centre that Natalie goes to. Although she hasn't been today as she was up most of the night so it wasn't fair to send her when she would be really tired. She's going tomorrow though, fingers crossed as she has a Christmas Jumper competition :0)
See I told you........its def clean & simple for me lol. I scalloped the edges with a Martha Stewart punch. I used white card & a burgundy card.........which is showing up really dark here :0( I cut them all to size then punched the scalloped edge & layered them up.

The stamp is Creative Expressions Ornate Bauble stamp & I heat embossed it with a dark red. The sentiment in the middle is LOTV & I added bit of stickles in red tinsel I think it might be called. Excuse the pics as the glitter is still wet.........I normally always wait til it dries before taking pics, sorry :0(

The top white card I embossing with the snow folder. I added gorgeous velvet ribbon, made a small bow & added a 'Heart Shaped Pearl' to the centre of the bow. 

Well thats it from me I better go as I've got my grand-daughter to bath. Payton is staying here tonight as Arjay goes into hospital again tomorrow morning...........yes again. He's having his hhips done.............yes AGAIN!!! The doc looked at the scan pics just under 2 weeks ago & decided that although he was happy with his hip placement he's now not. So our little fella has got go through it all again a week before christmas. 

I will be round to catch u
p with you as soon as I possibly can. Please dont comment if you dont have time, I know we are all super duper busy at this time of year.

Take care & big hugs to all mmwah
