A...B...or C ?

Hello there blogging buddies. How are we ? Another week has whizzed past far too quickly and it's Monday again.
Hope you had a good weekend. I went to The Dome in Doncaster for the stamping show organised by was very busy, but the names were there, that were missing at Harrogate so I was able to fill the gaps in my wish list and swap paper for goodies! NO not 12 x 12 paper silly...paper money...really! (if only...I have so much 12 x 12 paper)
Anyway I ended up with a small bag of goodies for a lot of paper!

Do you like the reminder at the top of my blog? just thought I would sicken you all with a countdown to Christmas.......I can hear you all groaning..............but alas it will be soon upon us and over as quick as last week on with Christmas.

Right I need your opinions now please. I have had the idea for this card, in my head for ages and so managed to get it put in to card this it is


The die is  Memory Box...Ringo tile...I thought they could pass as snowflakes. The snowflake dies are Spellbinders.and the sentiment a wooden mounted one from stash! The snowflake and the Ringo tile were dusted with Glamour dust for sparkle (wonder if it would work on me?)

OK then I started playing about and put some red card behind the aperture


and then some greeny blue glitter card (it's more green in does not do it justice)


So I now don't know which is the best.......should I stay naked (oh no! not literally silly....not a pretty sight)).....nothing behind  (this gets worse!)...............or do I put something at the back of it?

If you could please leave me a comment and let me know what you think that would be wonderful thank you.

Right, busy week ahead...........Dentist, Hairdresser and Hospital. Guess which one is the best (sorry no prizes) not much time for crafting but hopefully some. Done the ironing need to remember not to wash anything and make any more!!

Have a good week everyone, be good to yourselves...and others too. Thank you so much for stopping by .....please come back again soon.
Lets hope the sun shines......oh and don't forget to put your clocks back next extra hour crafting whoopeee!!!

  1. Brilliant card Carole. I like them all but I think my favourite is the plain one. You could make one of each of course!! Hugs, Carol S.xx

  2. What a fun post really had a smile reading it. I might try Doncaster next year instead of Harrogate sounds good. I love A Band C all for different reasons but I like the green sparkly best then the plain one. You could put paper on the back to shine thorough on the plain one only when its closed if you wanted. Either way its a fab design and looks stunning whatever you decide on Have a great week hope the Hospital and Dentist go Ok then enjoy the hairdresser!! Love and Hugs Carole x

  3. Loved your post Carole, you always cheer me up!!! 'Fabulous' cards all three.. I can see you using this die a lot, I do like the red, but then the green is so sparkly, and the plain so simple and sweet.. decision making isn't my forte this week as you will see from my post lol!!!
    Thinking about you Sis.....

  4. Your shopping spree sounded fun. And I did giggle reading your post today!

    I just love those Memory Box dies, and the cards you created with the border die are gorgeous. I truly can not pick one I like best, I think they make a great set!

  5. Hi Carole, great post, you made me chuckle, now swapping 12x12 papers for new craft stash, I like it! This Christmas card is stunning, my favourite is the glitter card, it looks gorgeous. The 'naked' one is also great and I loved the red before I scrolled down and saw the glitter, which just adds a little something! Can you reproduce them relatively easily? The snowflakes look gorgeous too.
    I hope your week goes okay, I'll be thinking of you xxx

  6. Oh and I'll be having extra sleep... unless the kids don't want to go along with that idea! xxx

  7. Love the look of all three versions of this elegant design! Thank you for playing at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'! Tracey x

  8. I WANT THIS DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great cards and you're right the die is perfect combo with the snowflake! -Oh and the reindeer has disappeared - instead there's them red poinsettia things - you know the ones I always kill within 3 days of receipt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Hi Carol
    Fabulous Die.... Stunning cards....
    Hugs Sylviexx

  10. absolutely gorgeous love all the colour ways and a great die
    hugs Kate xx

  11. So stylish and a great job doing them in different colours, thanks for joining us at MAWTT. xxx

  12. Hehe, love this post! They are all gorgeous but for me I think C just has the edge.

  13. I giggled my way through the 'words' of your post, and ooohhhed and ahhhhed through the photos of your lovely cards. Three takes, each one equally as pretty as the next. If you're like me, I'd need to vary the designs, so I'd be making a few of each kind, simply to keep myself amused. On the other hand, you could also keep things simple: go with the "naked' version for the die cut, and change up the colour of your snowflakes. Consider that my "Choice D" contribution *grin* Let us know what you decide...Hairdresser sounds good; the other two not so much. Hope the trip to the hospital isn't for anything major (I'll imagine you're just visiting...)

  14. Pretty cards!! Thanks for joining us this week at Christmas Card Challenges.

  15. those are cool!! LOVE how they turned out!!! Thanks for joining us at Christmas Card Challenges

  16. Carole! OooO no! I definitely am NOT able to choose which on I like the best! Gosh .. they are ALL so gorgeous .. I think maybe you should do one of each! :) Very ELEGANT & just so STUNNING!!!

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

    Big Hugs,

  17. Such a gorgeous design! I really do love them all. I'm always partial to red for Christmas but I think the fabulous sparkly one is the winner for me!
