Sassy Saluatations for Global Design Project for #GDP006

hello all

Well this last week or so has certainly  seen my pile of  Christmas cards increase dramatically - from none to 1 and now we have 4! - All  courtesy of Stampin' Up!'s lovely,  nostalgic and vintage feel,  product line that is  'Home for Christmas' - Everything from stamp sets and co-ordinating designer series papers and cardstock to trims, embellishments and more.

Inspired by the current sketch challenge over at Global Design Project #GDP006
and ably assisted by my helper and designer - in - chief (partner's 4 year old granddaughter!)  'we'  came up with this.

Home for ChristmasShe knew she wanted Santa's sleigh and liked the sequins and the glimmer paper stars (one of the accessory dies from the Wonderful Wreath framelits set) so these all went on!.

Me,  I went for something in contrast so chose the really  modern and funky looking seasonal sentiment from Sassy Salutations, in of course the ultimate Christmas colour which is 'Stampin' Up!'s Real Red!.

The toning Mossy Meadow ribbon is sadly retired but having a fair bit left,  thought I would put it to good use as one of the co-ordinating colours.
All in all 'we' were very pleased how it turned out. 

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used

Saturday tomorrow - and a spot of retail therapy is called for am thinking - then back to my Christmas card makes as have a craft class the end of the month with the emphasis on the 'C' word and I think I ought to augment my 4 cards with a couple more at least !

so with whatever you all get up to,  hope you have a lovely weekend  and remember a day not spent crafting - well it just doesn't bear thinking about does it.

til next time
