Week two of my holidays is over, it's the home stretch now unfortunately, although this is sure to be a good week because we are going away to the coast for 3 days. Hubby wants to fish and I'm happy to sit on the beach, soaking up our lovely winter sun reading a book. Heaven.

The challenge at CAS on Sunday is embossing and here is my card or to be perfectly correct, cards. They where so easy and such fun to make that I did three.

and individual ones, not sure why I didn't take a photo of the pink one!

The apricot backing for this one is actually a recycled envelope from a birthday card.

When I made the invites for my last birthday I had a whole lot of ovals left over. I have been trying to think of ways to use them and these cards did the job perfectly.
