It's A Coming!

I have all of a sudden started to panic as Christmas is just around the corner. My kids are madly making lists and pouring over the tonnes of junk mail (literally) that is arriving in our letter box each day. As usual I have not made any Christmas cards so need to get my butt into gear. Am seriously lacking inspiration at the moment. I have all of these gorgeous new products to play with but at the end of the day I am so exhausted dealing with a very grump 6 month old and mischevous 3 year old and not to mention the "I fast becoming a moody teenager" 11 year old that I just can't get motivated to do anything. Hopefully that changes fast. Here is a card we made for the new catalogue launch which is using one of my favourite sets.
Here is what I have used:
Stamps: Contempo Christmas
Paper: Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Ornament Extra-Large Punch, Silver Brads, Whisper White Ribbon, Dimensionals, Two-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds
When the girls were making this at the launch a very clever bunny decided that stamping the sentiment in Craft White and putting Dazzling Diamonds over the top was much more effective and I have to agree. That is why I love getting together with like minded stampers as great ideas always come out.
Stay tuned for some more christmas cards (hopefully) and don't forget the Christmas promo currently running.
