All that glitters is not Gold and slight Sad News!!

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

It is that time again for the next challenge 

for the 

where the theme is

Silver or Gold

but before I move on to my creation for this challenge, I have a little sad news
this will be my last regular creation for the 
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge
as I have decided to reduce my DT activity with them. I will join in the with the fabulous Design Team when the time allows, as when you are in the House Mouse Family you never really leave them.

anyway here is my inspirational piece, but do hop over  to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspiration from my sister meeces :)

I made a CAS card, I know not my norm, but it sort of cried out for this.

One of those wonderful images just embossed in gold with an appropriate sentiment.

Here is the image 
love how the light makes the changes to the embossed colour :)

Do hop over and join us for the challenge :)
 Don't forget, you too may submit your House-Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers creations directly to THE Official House-Mouse Designs site found HERE!  
I would like to welcome my new followers, and thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Less Is More - 12 days of Christmas
My Time to Craft - Christmas Birds
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Hugs and Enjoy Your Day
