Good Afternoon All,

Happy New Year! I hope you've had a good Christmas and are not suffering from any after effects from festivities last night.  We had a quiet night in after a fairly busy day.

I am here to share my snippets makes for the latest Grand Draw so generously given by Di from Pixie's Crafty Workshop every year.

When we were fetching the Christmas tree etc out of the loft my hubby found an old bottle bag which had been left up there.  The main part of the bag had totally discoloured but my little eagle eye spotted some small squares on it which still looked ok so I thought I would make them into a card before I ended up losing them.

There were in fact 9 small squares but as you can see I decided to make 2 small CAS cards. The small A6 card used snippets of red glitter card and a snippet of hammered cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment and added 3 little red sparklies.

The square card is only 5" and the piece of red glitter card is an offcut from the other one as I'd cut the square too big so I used a die and created a small frame for the second card. The silver square is also a snippet.  I didn't want to risk messing up embossing the sentiment direct to the card itself so this one is printed with silver metallic ink.  That's 2 to start my pile off for next Christmas :) .

P.S. The square on the first card looks wonky in the photo, but I can assure you it's not :)
