A CAS Christmas

Evening everyone .... hope you are all well?  Apologies for the lack of posts recently, have just had no time to craft and I am just sooooo tired lately.  I was out in Lichfield last night with my Sister and her friends for her hen night .... only 2 weeks to go until her wedding!  We went to Ego and had a fab evening.

So today I managed to make a couple of cards and here's one of them:

  5. This is lovely! I love the way you've got different colours onto your stamp - it's really effective. I'm like Debbie and hadn't realised the size of this stamp.

Hugs, Tracey xx
