Hi everyone from a beautiful day here in sunny Queensland. Earlier today, I was down with my dad and the family dog (Jackie Tan) at the water for a bit of fishing. Lot's of bites but nothing caught :(

Over at Addicted to CAS, we have our last challenge for 2014. Here is the code word which was chosen the the uber talented, Karen!

I do wish that I will see snowflakes at Christmas just once in my life. It is certainly on my bucket list. I was very jealous of the pictures that fellow teamie, Jaydee, posted the other day. It's funny, actually, because I HATE the cold. That's why I moved to Queensland in the first place. BUT, to see a white christmas would just be amazing!!

Here is my DT card for this code word -

(I even created a signature to use on my cards so I am feeling VERY clever at the moment, lol)

I chose a very monochramatic look for my card this time. I felt the silver and black were a nice combo for this Christmas card. See that snowflake? That is part of some card candy I was sent by fellow teamie, Loll.Thanks, Loll!!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

A Creative Romance - Sparkle at Christmas

Crafty Hands Challenge - Seasons Greetings / Winter theme
