CAS in brown

Are you in Christmas mood yet? 
Honestly, I didn't yet have time to think about anything like Christmas as I've been busy with University Monday through Friday from early morning (eeeek!) til way in the afternoon. Turns out surgery can actually be interesting, and exceptionally, there is no sarcasm in me saying so. 
However, the daily routine meant I didn't get to do any housework during the week, and barely some on the weekends. 
I did rush through the decorated city center a couple of times, but I'm not a shopping person normally (except of the crafting stuff) so I didn't quite fall for the crazyness going on in this oh-so-peaceful time of year. I won't be decorating anything myself either as I'll go visit my sister for the holidays, and I haven't baked anything as I had no time. 
Sounds like there has not been and wil not be much of Christmas for me this year.

The only Christmas-related crafting anything I did was making a couple of Christmas cards. Today's CAS card in brown will probably be one of my last creations for this year.
I made it using a brown wrapping paper with an old scripture which I placed on brown cardstock and attatched on the card with 3D adhesive pads.
In the end, I punched a couple of snowflakes and decorated them with white pearls. As I didn't include any Christmas related image or decorations, the cad might as well fit for any other winter occasion - a winter birthday probably?
