What do points make? Prizes, maybe?!

Good afternoon and how are you this Monday?
Another dreich day here in Scotland, the winter months are upon us, wouldn't you agree?
Did you have a good weekend?
It was busy this end with a mad day at work on Saturday and then a busy day crafting with my pals yesterday, we even managed a little SU stroking!  (It just had to be done).

To start with today I'd like to send out a big thank you to the lovely Patricia for the threads you sent me, wow I love them, can't wait to play with them.   All are beautiful, thank you.  x

Today and tomorrow I am sharing a few CAS cards I made last week for a friend at work.
This year is the 10th anniversary of our store and we are planning a bit of a knees up nearer Christmas.  In order to lighten the load we have been raising money all year towards this event.
My little part was to hold a M & S bingo session over a number of weeks, by jingo!  Instead of numbers I used M & S products, the first to 12 winning a bottle of bubbly and half a dozen handmade cards by moi!
The lovely Anne won and gave me some ideas of what she would like in her selection, over today and tomorrow I will share with you the finished cards.

Firstly a golfing card for her father's birthday.

I love this stamp and die set by Papertrey ink, using Distress ink Crushed Olive and a dress it up button.

Next a Rennie Mackintosh style card to send to a distant friend.

Firstly sorry about the photograph, it has been really dark and horrible over the last week and not the best for taking photographs.  This is a bigger die from Sizzix and I just used one side of it keeping the colour way very simple.
I am really loving the simplicity of this card with the die doing all the work, less is definitely more in my world just now!

Finally for today a Christmas card to Dad.

Anne asked for some traditional styled Christmas cards, hence the green and gold with matching tartan.  This stamp is by Waltzing Mousing, gold embossed and layered with coordinated cardstock.
Clean and simple.

Tomorrow I will share the other three cards, I do hope Anne likes the selection I made for her.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday. 
I have everyone home again today and lots to be getting on with, catch you again tomorrow.  
Just before I go my parcel of crafty goodness arrived from the States on Saturday, what a lovely surprise.  #exciting.
Do you want to see what I bought?

Back tomorrow.  x
