and to my fellow Pinkies - hope you all had a fabulous time at Michelle's training day..
Well, with a craft class looming in a couple of weeks and the theme being Christmas, thought I had better get on and make a few more - cards of the 'C' variety that is..
Though, I have to admit today's card is more a salute to some lovely Stampin' Up! designer series papers rather than stamping itself ...
and the 'Home for Christmas' designer series of papers with its real vintage feel just fit the bill perfectly.!
My inspiration came from the current sketch challenge over at Mojo Monday -
I took the lovely poinsettia paper, fussy cutting one flower with Stampin' Up!'s super sharp snips, then used my Pansy and Petite Petals punches to 'make' 2 more - popping them all up on dimensionals for a bit of depth.
Then it was just a simple matter to stamp my sentiment, one of those available from the matching Cozy Christmas stamp set, on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, matted this on another of the lovely papers from the same DSP pack, a little bit of linen thread for my bow and some Enamel dots, again in same range, for a little bit of decoration. All done, and could not have been easier.
I was really pleased with the end result.. Would love to hear what you all think?

Well today found me at Ally Pally at the Knitting and Stitching show with some members of my sewing class and our tutor. We came away with all sorts of stuff and had a great time but am thinking these things should really come with a wealth warning to your pocket..
I was edging with great purpose to my sewing machine exhibition stand - with 'replacement bells' ringing in my ear.. To himself's relief I did however resist - well for the moment anyway.. after all the 'C' word is on its way.. and who knows what Santa might bring as they say..
But home now and as to my 'C' card count - yeah that now makes 2 ! bit of a way to go I know but with all the stamps sets, papers, accessories and more in Stampin' Up!'s Stampin' Up!'s Autumn/ Winter catalogue I have plenty to be inspired with and there are certainly bound to be more to follow..
til next time - have a great week
