CASology–Cue card Green

DSCF1079 The cue card for the CASology challenge this week is Green and I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for this challenge.  Fortunately for me Friday saw the arrival of two new punches by We R Memory Keepers that I'd ordered and inspiration finally hit me.  I've used one of the mini Lucky 8 punches to create a snowflake backdrop and when you use the punch you are left with four squares. The edges were inked with distress ink from the Tim Holtz winter collection.  I decided to use the squares and make them into little Christmas presents.  The bow came from a Stamps of Life set and so did the sentiments.  For a little dazzle I have added some green stickles to the bows.

DH is out all day today so I've got the house all to myself but I have plenty of tasks that need doing before we go away for a few days and I might even try and put a few stitches into the month of August.  I managed to grab a little bit of time before going to work yesterday and completed the A and one flip flop!

It's taking both DH and myself a little time to get used to the cupboard shift and we've both gone to the usual place when reaching for a cup!  We'll get used to it in time.
