 Good Morning Everyone,

I have made a CAS Christmas card to share today.

This is from an old Kanban set and I have heat embossed in gold and silver, cut it out with a stitched rectangle and added a silver mat. The sentiment, also heat embossed, is from a different set, but I can't quite remember which at the moment.

A bit of good news is that my daughter had her baby, a little boy called Kody, a week last Sunday.  He is perfect, but the happy news was mixed with some worrying news two days later when we learnt that she and her partner had both caught Covid.  Not a good start with a 2 day old baby, but I am happy to say they have not been affected too badly.  I have seen baby once from a distance and hopefully in a few days time, all being well, will be able to have a cuddle.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for taking the time to visit and any comments are appreciated.

Morning Lynn,

This is such a beautiful CAS design, you pulled the elegant look of perfectly, I so struggle doing the same.

Pleased things are now settling for baby and the new parents, so unfortunate to happen like that, but not too long now to those special cuddles.

We are still in waiting, she looks fit to burst on Monday and well and truly fed up.
