A little Aussie Season Midnight Madness!

This is my first go at a midnight madness sketch over on priscillastyles blog. I have started to think I am running out of time for Christmas cards so used this sketch to make one. I love all the traditional Christmas colours and cards out there but I also think sometimes we need a little bit of Aussie. We don't have snow or but definitely have lots of heat and sun. I think these colours reflect Australia for Christmas, all nice and earthy and natural, and I think this one will go OS this year.

Here is what I used:

Stamps: Season of Joy, Punches Three (Hostess Set)

Paper: Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke, Holiday Harmony DSP (retired)

Ink: Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate (retired)

Accessories: Linen Thread, Ric-rac, Circle Punch, Star Brad, Dimensionals

The sentiment I cut out from the stamp from Punches Three set - I cased this idea from the very clever Claire Daly check out her amazing blog for other great projects.

Thanks for stopping by I had fun making this today (can you hear that? - its the lovely sounds of a 2 year old sleeping - I can play!)
