Twinkle - Twinkle : Festive Friday!

Twinkle - Twinkle : Festive Friday!

I was GOBsmacked when I saw Ardyth's tree card on the Festive Friday Blog!!
Amazing precision.  
Now, there are many, many, many AWESOME designers out there.
And I am now surrounded by them on the CASology Blog!

Though as a new pupil in the art of CAS, the epitome of
CAS and the teacher I am most inspired by is Ardyth of "Maskerade".
I am no where near her precise 'CAS'ness.
I know this, and I am fine with it.
Still, study and I will continue!!

Why Ardyth - you ask? 
Visit her blog and you will get an idea of the art.

Okay, okay,  On with it!
I saw her lovely trees with a glimmer of the silver underlying and was awestruck.
I already knew it was on the hit parade to "CASE" later.
This afternoon as I am putting away a few things, I see the little tree stamp (see below)
"BOOM" Trees, silver and I am ready.
My mind spins till I get this out..

Here she is in all of her SILVERY Glory!

This is absolutely STUNNING! I would never have bought that Michael's stamp but what you have done with it proves that I would have been completely wrong! This is so pretty and elegant in it's neutral (but shiny and blingy) glory! As for all those compliments, wow, I can't even take them all in - I'm blushing too much! Thank you for your support and kind words - you have a gorgeous style all your own!
