Home for Christmas 2 - meets Mojo Monday!

hello all -

Uhm on reflection, the title of my post this evening really does sound like some film sequel - but honest, I can assure it isn't.

Am still here, in my little crafting metre,  playing with the delightful papers in the Home for Christmas designer series paper pack such that I was able to use a left over poinsettia from my foray at fussy cutting a few days ago.

Having just managed to enter last week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge by the skin of my teeth - this week am a bit more prepared and actually ready to enter a card now  and it still is quite early on in the week..!

inspired by this and all the fabulous designs from the Design team for this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge

Home for Christmas

I came up with this as my interpretation of the sketch: 

Embellished ornaments

and this time I did augment the card with a bit more stampin'!

embellished ornaments

I really do love the whole vintage feel of all this from the classy music sheet paper, to the homespun feel of the  linen thread and really Chistmassy Red, Greens and Cream colourways featured,  right down to the toning Enamel Dots set I used.!

and with Stampin' Up! where co-ordination is definitely the 'C' word here - you know that  all the products in the 'Home for Christmas' product range will just complement each other perfectly.

Nothing like Stampin' Up!'s Real Red to make you think of Christmas and coupled with lovely Mossy Meadow from the 2014 - 2016 In-colours - well, it really is 'Jingle all the Way' or it would be if I could sing.!

Both the sentiment and my stamped holly branches and berries come care of the Embellished Ornaments Stamp set (and excellent value as this comes bundled with the matching Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies).  Off stage, bottom right,  the lovely spare poinsettia which I just matted on top of some Very Vanilla card,  fussy cut and popped up on dimensionsals,  curling some linen thread around,  for the overall look I wanted - To quote 'Sergei' - 'simples'

well this evening saw me glued to the television earlier, waving my England flag whilst watching Team GB vs Australia at the 2012 Copper Box arena, competing in the World Wheelchair Rugby competition. 
If anything is madness on wheels - phew that has to be it.. no wonder they used to refer to it as Murder Ball.!

and little GB against mighty OZ - well you would have been forgiven for thinking we would have faced a right drubbing - but team GB really held their nerve almost taking the Aussies  to a draw, but in the end only losing by 2 points. An absolutely amazing achievement from a very young side with Rio 2016 firmly in their sights.. Go Team GB!

well that is it from me - til next time have a lovely week.
