Anything Goes CCC!

Hello to Everyone, how are you all today. well I hope but sending good wishes to those who are not doing so well just now and hopefully you will feel better soon.

Another two weeks have past very quickly I might add, and that means it's time for the CCC ladies to share their Christmas cards. Sylvie is our hostess this time around and she has chosen Anything Goes.
 So here are my cards for this challenge;

Both cards use stamps from Crafty Individuals, the tree is a new one and I so love trees so had to have it. DI making the sky and lots of Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium for the snow.

My second card is a wonderful image, left mainly in the black with just a splash of red as you can see, again lots of sparkle and the background is CE Pixie Powders in Fireburst.. First Edition sentiment die, a couple of black dazzlers and a bit of wobbly hand drawing around the edges.

I do like an Anything Goes, so thank you Sylvie for the challenge, I hope you like them.

Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post, I always love to read what you have to say, and appreciate the time you take to pop in.

Well it's been a momentous week and it's not over yet.... I guess the Fat Lady as they say hasn't finished singing, except she's not fat, but strong and stable like a Queen Anne Leg LOL.  That's enough of politics.
More momentousness tomorrow as I will be another year older, how did that happen?? Nothing special happening, but we did go to a marvellous concert last night and we will go for a spot of lunch later today. It's the Choral AGM tomorrow night and I will be at that.

It's raining here and quite dull, after all the lovely weather it's disappointing but it is what it is.

Have a lovely Sunday whatever you're doing, and see you soon,
