Casing Linda/Emma





Good morning, here is my last Christmas card this year. I received one this week from Linda and Emma (Heartfelt Creations), that may me gasp!!! It was so beautiful! So I set out to case it, mine looks okay but not as gorgeous as theirs. The pages turn with other sayings on each one. I used the following:

3415 Petite Poinsettia ; 3419 Holiday Poinsettia Candle ; 3429 Wisemen Ornament ; 3430 Shepherd Scene ; 3433 Book Frame ; 3421 Dove of Peace ; Labels Seven; Lacey Squares; Layered Poinsettia Die; Versa Mark; Gold Powder and Stampin Up card Stock. Guess that's it for now, the cookie swap went great yesterday with a fantastic lunch, I posted a picture at the top.....Today the Secret Pals have a lunch and swap and tell who had whose name. then I think I'l done with all the great lunchs, that is until Sat. Michelle comes up and we do Christmas then, Sunday will be with Bill's family. then, no more eating and back to weight watchers!!! I may even buy me a roll of duck tape LOL, Yall have a great one and I'll be around to comment!!!!

Your card is absolutely stunning... super elegant! You know duct tape come in all kinds of crazy colors. I was thinking of some to match every outfit! Pretty sure that's the only way I can avoid all the goodies!

Gorgeous card! Love the picture...everyone's all smiles :) Have a great time with Michelle and Bill's family, too! Know what you mean about a cut off on food....I was doing good 'til Thanksgiving!

Gorgeous card, Olga! Looks like a fun cookie swap! I hope all your holiday gatherings are wonderful! I'm with you, NO EATING after the holidays, but meanwhile, I'm going to enjoy all the goodies!

Olga,
Your card is stunning! As for the duct tape, that could really hurt. I know what you mean though. I used to bake for three days, when the kids were little. Now there is no one here so I really don't bake. I sure do miss all the goodies though, not the guilt.

Merry Christmas to you too! You did a great job 'on the case'... it's beautiful and every bit as pretty! I gasped too when I opened mine... think I will have to frame it!!!

My mother in law will come spend the night Christmas Eve with us and then the rest of the family comes over on Christmas Day. Of course tons of food involved... LOL. Wish it was calorie free! LOL

Hi, I absolutely love this card. I bought the Nestibilities book die cut and have never used it. I might have to use yours for inspiration. Beautiful job.
