Hi there and welcome, once more, to Wednesday!

Morning all,

I'd like to welcome new follower, Sandy, she's a new pal from craftbubble - thanks for stopping by Sandy - hope you will pop back from time to time too.

Sooooo not happy with the weather last evening. We'd virtually completed our thaw by about 16:00 yesterday - hubby came home from a meeting and casually remarked that it was snowing! In about an hour we lost sight of our patio and lawn  - again - arrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!

You can see from the streaks how much is coming down!
It was even settling on the roads within an hour - despite being "rush hour"
So, another day to stay in and craft ......... and over on the CASology challenge blog their newly unveiled challenge is: DRINK!!! The CASology challenges are set each Tuesday if you fancy having a go! So, here's my take in it - CHEERS!

Materials used:
  • 12½ cm square white, 250 gsm card and matching sized envelope
  • 11½ cm square panel of pinky beige glitter card
  • 11 cm square of silver mirri card
  • 10½ cm square panel of white card
  • Penny Black image inked using Memento tuxedo black and coloured using eggnog pro marker
  • Glossy accents to simulate glass and frosted lace stickles for the bubbles
  • Imagine That sentiment inked using Memento tuxedo black
  • Three faux crystal gemstones to finish

Hope you like the card ..... Happy Wednesday, if you still have snow and/or ice then please be careful out there. Due to last night's snowfall I've rescheduled my plans for today and will be crafting at home! and this is how my work desk looks this Wednesday morning - hope yours is tidier!!!

See - we STILL have SNOW!
Can YOU see what I'm working on?

Our snow looks like its on its way out I'm pleased to say. I'm mindful that your snow might be on its way to us but hoping that's not the case.

Lovely anniversary card (loving those GA's). Good luck with the challenge. Lx

Wow, you've got as much snow as we do right now (although I bet it's not -16C there?) Love your sparkly anniversary card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week, Kathy!

My name is Wynneth said...

Sorry to hear you've had more snow :o( we are clear down here and I've got fingers crossed there's none tomorrow for our trip to Westpoint.

Love your DRINK CASology card, a glass or two of champers is always welcome I say ! Might have a go at an entry myself this week.

great card Kathy, love those champagne glasses! x

Brenda Brown said...

Pretty card, glad to see the glasses are still full. One for me? LOL.
Our snow laid thick at first, then got crunchy with the freeze, then started to thaw, got covered again, and thawed more, nearly gone now. But I Love it and I've had great fun crafting.
hugs {brenda} x0x
