October CCC...

It's that time of the month ....CCC time... the good time when a wonderful creation arrives in your letterbox from some amazingly talented lady somewhere in the world.....  and mine came from the lovely Linda W (aka ScrappinBari).  This month one of the theme's was Angels.  And this is what arrived in my letterbox
 Isn't it a stunner.  - Even the inside was stamped with some gold angels.   Linda also managed to do the sketch as well.... and enclosed some beautiful Hero Arts gems and flowers in a blue colour.... just perfect as I can not get these here in NZ easily.  Thank you so much Linda.

My partner this month is Isha who lives in Switzerland.  I'm not sure if she has received my card yet, but here is what I sent her.  I used the sketch.
I got some new DCWV card mat while I was away and this beautiful card was amongst the pages,  I added the blue/black butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch with some gems added.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I though it really encapsulated what card making is all about.... creativity!!!  I hope Isha likes it.

I have been pottering away this week..... getting my stockpile of cards sorted for my stall next week at work.  I did manage one card using the Acrylic Block technique that was in Week 2 of Jennifer McGuire's Holiday ThinkingInking... it is a fun way to make a background.  I used some Shabby Shutters and Barn Door distress inks and come up with this
Christmas tree card -
.
Was pleased with the result and have a few more pieces ready to use.

Well I'm feeling shattered tonight... the busy weekend catching up so a few more blog reads and some stamping then an early night... with maybe a few chapters of the book I'm reading... a rollicking good yarn by Matthew Reilly called " The Six Scared Stones" - a sequel to "Seven Ancient Wonders"
A great adventure/thriller by a young Australian author.  A bit in the vein of  "Raiders of the Lost Ark" but good fun.

Take care
