Welcome back, It’s our last challenge of 2022 at ATCAS so I do hope you will join in and play along with our current theme which has been chosen for us by the super-talented Raga.
Such a great theme and I’m sure you all have something present-related in your stash.
For my “borderline” CAS card I used this fantastic die by Spellbinders called shopping spree it’s in the series of kinetic dies her legs swing to and fro it’s so cute and you can dress her as you wish. It’s quite fiddly has lots of small pieces and if you have a messy desk like mine then you might need to die cut a few pieces again as they tend to go missing. I used distress oxide for her coat, mat gold, and silver card for the pressies, and a little glitter for her boots and mitts. The mini slimline frame is from Pinkfresh Studio. I had a great sentiment for this card “finders keepers” which I added after taking the photo as it was as I mentioned before borderline CAS so kept it as is.
I do hope you will be able to join us at ATCAS to CAS for our last challenge of the year my teamies have some fantastic cards to inspire you all and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and look forward to seeing you in the new year at ATCAS refreshed and revitalised.
Linking up to NBUS challenge # 44 as my little dancing lady is having her first shopping spree
Happy Little Stampers has an Anything Goes with Dies challenge and there are plenty of dies on this card
OH! I absolutely LOVE this card Marie, as you say so many pieces, but put together beautifully, love the frame too. The fact her legs swing is so much fun. YOU with a messy desk, I don’t believe it!
Faith my desk is always messy and I mean MESSY !!!
Love this UB. Fabulous as always. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs Flo xx
Hello gorge thanks for popping in always lovely to hear from you.
Oh, boy, Marie, you are tempting me AGAIN! That little lady had a successful shopping spree and I want to be her friend! She is not only a stylish dresser, but she wraps her gifts for others in gold and silver … some good presents there I think!! (Brings back memories of fun times with paper dolls!) Love the frame, too. Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
Oh Darnell I used to love those paper dolls so much fun. Couldn’t afford anything for the gifts the paper was soo expensive lol
LOVE this card, and it’s taking a lot of restraint not to go right to Spellbinders so I can add her to my stash! That adorable girl (check her outfit!) carrying those metallic wrapped gifts couldn’t be more perfect!
Hi Karen thanks for your lovely comment. Can you send me a link to your blog, please
I soooooooooooo love this card Marie. Such detail and I can imagine the bits on your desk and those that could land elsewhere. Such a fabulous fun layout and all in perfect position. What fun it would have been even with the ‘mess’. Can’t create without it can you!
Ina, you are so right
I’m always more inspired when my desk is messy even if I usually end up die cutting twice
I absolutely love this! I’m a big fan of the swinging leg cards,I’m such a big kid and easily entertained 😍
I know how time consuming it is making these little presents and organising them to look good, you’ve done an excellent job. I love the colour of the coat and the boots look warm and cosy. Going to miss seeing your beautiful cards!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment but don’t worry you will be seeing plenty more cards
What a charming framed scene Marie and the swinging legs make it all the more special! Love those metallic touches too. My top tip for finding the tiny lost die cuts is to go ahead and cut some more… you ALWAYS find the originals when you do this LOL! Vicky x
so true Vicky
Fabulous Christmas card!!! I love the dimension of it too. May your holidays be filled with fun, family, and presents. 🙂 Thanks for sharing with us at NBUS. Hope you continue to share your creations. Bonnie GDT

I need the presents !
What a fabulous design, Marie and I love your elegant shopper! The matching mittens and boots are a great feature and I love your colouring too.
Hope you are keeping well.
