Still out of my comfort zone ....

..........but coping! Well I've stopped hyperventilating at least!!!  Anyway, happy Sunday to you folks I hope your day is as beautiful where you are as it is here.  We have glorious sunshine but with a chill in the air and I just love it.  Just the weather for a stroll and then home for a hot chocolate and marshmallows mmmm.

Well I've popped in to show you my latest.  There is something to be said for clean and simple I can knock out at least four cards to my normal one.  I've found this style doesn't come easy to me but its a challenge and I'm enjoying that.  Here's my card:-

The stamp I used is from a Papermania set I bought last year.  I stamped with black ink and then used black sparkle embossing powder which is gorgeous when heated up.  White card matted with black and red mirri, a few gems, some shiny red cord and its done!  Very simple I know but I like it.
Its quite quiet here at the moment, hubby is working, my son is out playing football, my little girl is practising her first aid for Beavers tomorrow night so I'm going to grab half an hours crafting before the madness that is teatime begins!
Take care folks and happy crafting.


  1. Beautiful card Ann-Marie. It's CAS but very elegant.

  2. Gorgeous, beautiful Christmas card.

  3. I love this Ann-Marie, what a gorgeous image and I love the simplicy of it. Must say, that hot chocolate and marshmallows sounds very inviting.

  4. I know what you mean, I'm the fussy and fancy type myself, and CAS cards are so hard to to. I find they actually take me more time than the usual ones I make because I'm never happy with the result...lol.. But yours turned out beautifully! So pretty with the red details! Hugs, Elizabeth

  5. Oh I just cant do CAS!! :) This is beautiful, stylish and elegant and I think you have the style nailed on! Beautiful card hun!
