During this X-mas heat I've got my own heat: I've got a tracheitis and have to stay home... meh...
Anyway the last weekend I experienced something completely new: my Mom & me took part of the annual fair called 'Nice stuff fair' (in Polish 'Jarmark Rzeczy Ładnych'). This is a kind of a craft show, where people can sell and show their stuff made by their hands. And people make lots of stuff: scrapbooking, decoupage, altering, sewing, felting, sculpting, mosaics... 1001 things that a man can craft. I got my Mom persuaded that she should show her knitting - she makes wonderful clothes for little kids. I joined her with my cards, but the main aim was to pick her out from home with her works. We spent a wonderful time talking to people, sold some things and joined the next fair, which is gonna take place on March. We can't wait! Here are some pics from this event:

Now onto my card.
This time I decided to go CAS style, using the stamp that was not a stamp. I die cutted the X-mas tree using Cottage Cutz die, and 'stamped' it on a card using the embossing transparent ink and transparent embossing powder. Then inked the image with a 'blue jeans' distressing ink. Voila!
The background is also being stamped with Viva Decor stamps and heat embossed, too. My fiance said it was the best card I made for X-mas (he likes CAS cards, as the man do). The sentiment says 'Merry X-mas' and it is a sticker.
I'm entering the following challenges with this card:
