Simon Says Stamp DT Card - Something A Little Different, Gone A Little Bit Wrong!

Good morning peeps,
I had one of my moments yesterday & made a man cry with laughter! There was a mix up over the delivery of my Christmas Tree & the man at the courier company tried telling me the tracking record showed it had been posted through my letterbox!!! I know I can be a bit of an air head but I think even I would have noticed a 6ft Christmas Tree hanging out my flipping letterbox for goodness sake. I was ranting & laughing at the same time & accused him of stealing my Christmas tree, then the delivery driver, or the neighbours, eventually he said he'd just discovered it was still at the depot so I was right, he did try to pinch it lol. In the end he said he couldn't talk to me anymore as his stomach hurt from laughing, how rude when I was traumatised by the non arrival of Christmas tree lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week it's everyone's favourite

My lovely teamies & I are showcasing either Unity or Lawn Fawn stamps this challenge.

I have made a feeble attempt at a CAS card, me CAS yeah right lol. Well it hasn't got any flowers so that's a start but I just couldn't do it properly, I felt that I hadn't put any effort into making it & changed a strip of embossed paper for some beautiful lace, added some Bakers Twine & then thought it best to leave it alone before I totally blew it lol. I can see why CAS cards are popular, they are so quick & easy to make compared to the usual fussing around deciding which embellies to use & then getting the mass of embellies in just the right place but I guess that's just me, a natural fusspot lol.
 
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics (especially for Pendra x) - G94, G85, G00, C1, C0, C00
Bakers Twine - Martha Stewart

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a mahoosive $50 spending spree

If you don't already visit the STORE BLOG pop over & take a peek, Michelle has featured some fabby stickers that have just change my mind about liking them, & as always you can see a selection of new goodies in store, featured products & enter the many giveaways.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Creative Craft - free for all, Scrap Creations - Christmas, Top Tip Tuesday - white, silver & a hint of ?, Bunny Zoe's - pearls & lace, Craft Your Passion - Tis the Season, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamps R Us - emboss it, Whoopsi Daisy - white on white, Stamptacular - anything Christmas, Sunday Sketch & Stamp - sketch, The Poodles Parlour - Christmas, Simply Create Too - all about Christmas, Totally Papercrafts - Christmas

I have decided I need to leave shorter comments when I visit you all as I'm struggling to find time to get round to visit everyone who takes the time to leave me comments & less typing is better for my shoulder & means I will be able to visit more of you so I will be attempting to cut the waffle lol.
Tomorrow I will be back in my usual over embellished sparkly style.
Thanks for stopping by
