Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at Christmas with the Cuties and for the next 3 weeks the theme is CAS so we would love to see your CAS creations, as long as they are cute and christmassy.

The sponsor for the challenge is Crafty Sentiments and they have kindly provided the team with images.  

This is the card I made.  I don't think I'm really cut out for clean and simple as I always want to add more!  I coloured the image with copics and added some pearl drops, glitter and glossy accents.  I layered the image onto an oddment of navy card and the three banner strips were made from some scraps and that was it!  I used hammered white card as I think it adds a bit of texture and also looks a bit snowified (I don't think that's a proper word)).

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see all the lovely creations from the rest of the DT.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

June Rudolph Days - Anything Goes
Pixie's Snippets Playground
Winter Wonderland - Snowmen
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Extra - Anything Goes
That's Crafty - Keep it Simple
ABC Christmas Challenge - M is for more than one (3 different papers)

Thank you for visiting and I do appreciate it when you leave a comment, I love to read them.

Have a good week,

Lynne x

Hi there Lynne! I'm almost certain this is your first visit to the Snippets Playground, although your profile photo is familiar! Can you pleas leave me a quick comment if it's your first visit to join in the challenge as I like to welcome all our new playmates - and it also encourages folk to pop over and visit you, and perhaps add themselves as a follower as well.

Love this card and I'm scrimping on those LOTV papers, such a great way to use them yet still have plenty of white space too. Super cute snowman as well! Have added myself as a follower so you now have 28 of us! :)

Lovely to see you in the Playground!
