Candy Cane

Here is a digi image from Dustin Pike. I've had it for quite a while and it took a bit of searching through the files on my computer to find it, as I couldn't remember what heading I had filed it under. Anyway all's well that ends well and here it is coloured with alcohol pens and simply mounted onto the deep red card base. I double stacked the sentiment, as the card seemed rather flimsy!
It's my DT card for the challenge at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.
Hopefully I am ahead of the game this year as far as Christmas card production goes... I haven't actually done a count, maybe I should and hope that suppositions are correct!!

When I saw the topic for this month's Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge, I immediately thought of the film FROZEN
I don't know if any stamps are available, but I thought that OLAF should be fairly easy to draw, (even though I'm no great artist) so I looked at some of the images of him online and drew this little chap. I shaded him with  Copics and gently twinkled most of him with Glamour Dust and used Wink of Stella on the rest of him. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant.
I think my grandkids would quite like this card!

Another try

Here is another try at doing the Oxidised Metal technique for CAS Mix Up Challenge. I didn't get quite as messy with this one as with previous efforts. I used both an embossing folder to give texture to the piece and a die  over the top. The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto a piece of mirri card too.

I haven't made my mind up whether or not I like this one! It looks better at certain angles but I can't quite capture a good one on camera!
The DT gals over at CAS MixUp have come up with some amazing examples, I take my hat off to them! Gorgeous, inspiring work!
Thanks to you all!

Thank you!

I think it's rather nice if the sign of appreciation, in some way, matches the deed for which the recipient is being thanked.
The choir with which I have been singing for some 36 years, puts on concerts 3 or 4 times a year. At most of these concerts we have wine and soft drinks served in the interval... (often makes for a jolly second half) and the person who has been serving these drinks for many years, has decided that he needs a break. We are so grateful for all his hard work and this is the card I made to accompany our thanks!
I chose a burgundy backdrop and inlaid the die with plain white card and some of the deep red. We sang a concert of Mozart and Haydn last night, which was really enjoyable... I must say the wine in the interval was really welcome and its server much appreciated.
