C-A-S IS H-A-R-D!!!!

I am feeling quite smug this week……whenever I make a CAS card that I actually LIKE, I get pretty smug.  CAS is the hardest style EVER for me.  BTW, IS THIS CAS??? I mean there's lots of white space, but it wasn't the fastest card I ever made…..so maybe I'm being prematurely smug…..like maybe it's not even CAS!!  Well anyway, for me, no stamping and no coloring make it CAS in one sense at least!!  I actually do really like the way this turned out…..the SUO challenge was to make a last minute Christmas card….I so wanted to play with my new stuff from SU this week but decided I should use other stuff for a Christmas look!  I had this card in my head, and sometimes when you try to put on paper what you have in your head it turns out to be a bomb, but it worked!! Anyways, I'm gonna enjoy that smug feeling, even if some of you say this card isn't CAS, it's MY kinda CAS……okay??  Merry Christmas to all of you!!! Until next time……Karen  PS IT sure has been fun getting all the comments from you all, and knowing that more then 4 people actually do read my blog!! Keep it up, okay?  :)

I think this is a terrific CAS card and I know exactly what you mean!! CAS is hard but you nailed it with this card :-) Love the ornaments, the colors that you chose and all of the other details- great job!

Well, I like your CAS. It looks more like a very pretty and more work than a clean and simple card. Love the colors and all the textures.

Oh Karen, Karen - who ever said CAS was quick!! They can take ever so much longer than fussier cards, in my opinion. Those ornaments are just so much fun - with the texture and pattern I have to say they remind me of knitted mittens but I mean that in the best possible way - if I weren't up to my eyes I'd have a go at translating one of your ornaments into knitting.
Wishing you and your family a peaceful and blessed Christmas season.
