Hope you have had a really memorable Christmas, have all been good and Father Christmas brought everyone their most wanted things on those all important gift lists.!
For me - I had a really lovely time at my Mum's, and with everyone paying a visit sometime over the holiday - it was very special.
Have spent the last day of 2014, diligently writing my various thank you's, to family, friends and customers alike. I didn't have to think too much about the colour scheme for these at all, as it was dictated by courtesy of 'what's on my desk' from last week's last minute panics with cards and crackers.!
I don't know about anyone else, but am usually drawn to one particular colour in the In-colours sets, rather than any of the others - last year's for me was 'Pistachio Pudding' and this year's just has to be 'Lost Lagoon'.
.. and of course, Co-ordination with a 'Capital C' is what Stampin' Up! excels at (amongst a whole host of other things!) - so the 'All is Calm' designer series paper complements it so well, that I had no need to look for anything else. (My other half was chuckling wondering how the various papers even went with the spare room carpeting!)
and of course no self-respecting card would be complete without a matching envelope!
Batch no 1 ready to go - batches 2 and 3 to follow but after a restorative cup of tea am thinking.!

Card stock/ Designer Series Paper : Whisper white, Lost Lagoon, All Is Calm DSP

Well as the last few hours of 2014 slip away - it only remains for me to wish everyone a very Happy New year and may it be a peaceful and healthy one for us all.
....and of course - it will soon be that most wonderful Stampin' Up!' time of the year, that is Sale-a-Bration.
It all starts on the 6th January and with the new Spring/Summer Catalogue due for launch on the same day - lots of lovely things to look forward to.
... and a sneaky peak of the front covers to whet your appetite as not too much longer to wait now. May the count down begin and this time I am not talking 'New year'.
Til 2015 everybody - I hope all your new Year celebrations, whatever form they take - go off with a bang, but not literally of course!
very best wishes
