From our Home to Yours

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS, and I am your hostess!  For this challenge, I have chosen a word that is important to many of us this time of the year: 

My family has been so supportive of me while I have been working full time again for the last few months. It has been really stressful on me, and they have been a huge help at home!  I am glad that I had a chance to get back into teaching full-time, but I quickly learned that I made the right choice when I quit teaching six years ago. :)  I am much better at being a temporary substitute and I can't wait to go back to doing that! 

For the challenge this week, I started by embossing my houses on Brushed Gold and Brushed Silver cardstock with Black Embossing Powder.  The Glimmer Paper makes perfect snow and when it reflects in the light it has a pink tone to it.  My card base was born from there! :) 
I think the pink ended up being a nice addition. It looks even better in real life when you can move the card to see the pink in the snow.  I might just have to reproduce a few of these to use as Christmas cards!

Thanks for stopping by. Make sure to visit the rest of the Addicted to CAS design team!  The have some beautiful CAS cards for you again this week, as always!
