Sweet Christmas

I am back!  As you can tell, I am all about christmas these days!  I have been trying to get my cards all created for my stamp a stack that is coming up.  it's not for another month....but I always get nervous If I haven't got it planned early enough, becuase then I can also eyeball my supplies to make sure I have enough of everything and I am not limited by my supplies with what I can make (ie. not enough time to order what i want to make the cards I want).  soooo....I made this sweet thing last night!!  Not sure if it will make the cut for this stamp a stack.  As I try to balance out the ease of creating with time allowed and what I'm going to try and make ten and then choose five...and maybe i'll do a christmas round two!  yay!  ha ha the holidays!  anyways...I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #49, and my colours were inspired by the Snow Festival Product wuite in the Stampin' Up! 2012 Holiday Mini.  Here is the sketch:
Love these sketches, they are so nice and provide just the right amount of inspiration needed to get your mojo going, but not so much stuff that you can't add a bit of your own thing in there too!!  Here is my card: 
Stamps: Sweets for the Sweet, Sassy Salutations.
Cardstock: Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White.
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green.
Tools & Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, SNAIL, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, 2-way glue pen, dazzling details, Apothecary accents framelits, 3/8" gumball green stitched satin.
With my stamp a stack I am also trying to use a variety of colours.  I don't want everyone to go home with ten cards that all look similar becuase they are all red, green and brown.  I am adding a few splashes of other colours also.  Thanks for checking me out today!
