Sassy Salutation Christmas

Hi there.  

Another lovely day here, not in the least bit Christmassy but I like to join in with Merry Mondays when I can.  This week is a colour challenge - Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, River Rock.  Thanks so much for the honourable mention for last weeks card, girls.

I used River Rock as my card base.  Stamped some snowflakes from Four Seasons in Whisper White in the top corner.  Sassy Salutations is so funky it easily stands alone as the focal image.  I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler, then popped it up on Dimensionals.  For the Always Artichoke I struggled.  I don't have any card stock in this colour and I don't have the stamps that match this little Christmas tree punch.  So what to do?  Well I took a scrap of Whisper White and rubbed it directly onto my Always Artichoke ink pad.  It gave a lovely material look to my scrap (this is an original felt ink pad rather than the new foam pads).  I then punched out my trees. 

I used the design on this weeks Muse card for my inspiration.

Isn't this card beautiful?  I really haven't done it justice.  Laurie Willison is our muse this week. 

So how was your day today?  I was at Jazzercise this morning.  I need to work off all the home bakes I've eaten over the weekend! Think I better go tomorrow, the next day and the next..........  My neighbour runs a fantastic class locally so if you fancy joining me and working off those calories it would be lovely to see you there.  

Want a look at the bakes? 

This is all that's left.  I made them for the ladies that came along to my party on friday.  Every time I look round one of my family has one in their hands.  They wont last long.

Right carrot sticks for me for the rest of the week.  A big Hello to Guylaine, thanks for following me.  And thank you to CAS colours and sketches for my win for this card.  I'm so lucky. 

Hope you have a lovely week.  x
