Did your week zip past as quickly as mine did? I'm combing my memory for highlights, but I'm coming up empty. The weather has swung like a pendulum: freezing, snowy, dangerous driving conditions early in the week, with today, and the weekend forecast, looking downright balmy. Well, almost...we have snow which, for the opening biathlon competitions of the season is a good thing. My husband is involved as an executive director for the sport, but isn't a biathlete himself. (Thank heavens - the bike racing is enough!). This means he'll be 'working,' and I'll be...you know what I'll be doing :-)
Two of my evenings were dedicated to tasks non-card-making, and subsequently lead me into a bit of a dither. If anyone claims card-making is "not" addicting, I will certainly present evidence to the contrary! I need my crafty-time, otherwise...not. a. pretty. sight.
During the other two evenings, I managed some therapy time with my papers, dies and stamp. Two card for this evening's post share a common theme: bells. A new set of stamps and dies from WPlus9 on the countertop (aka: my craft zone) and this week's CASology bell inspiration,
My first card was inspired by this one (totally adorable. Now I'm thinking I should subscribe to the SSS kits) from the amazingly talented Shari Carroll, and is off to CAS-ology only:
My second card joins its partner at CAS-olgy, and is also off to Retrosketches #80
Vellum and I - we don't work so well together (many of the entries feature this element beautifully)
so I slightly adapted the sketch, opting to pair last season's WPlus9 word and snowflake die with
new Silver Bells sets.
Note: So honoured to receive a Shout out at Retro Sketches for this card. Thank you!!
More "pretty" from the Silver Bells set to come...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
