In the Red!!

Hey there! I guess I was in a very 'red' mood when I created these yesterday! I was enjoying the new background paper I just bought and was inspired to keep going! I did put these together yesterday - good thing too as I'm severely lacking sleep today due to my son's Beaver sleepover at the Science & Tech Museum last night! It was fun but I don't think I'm cut out to sleep on the floor anymore as my years progress closer to 40!!! I'll certainly be looking forward to my bed tonight!
Anyway, back to the cards and I hope you like what I've done here. The 2 square cards are pretty simple basic layouts with nothing particularly fancy going on but I have to say I do like the final look I achieved with them. I really love Tilda and the way I have the sentiment and stars being given as a 'gift' from her. The reindeer is a beautiful stamp from Penny Black which I embossed with platinum embossing powder. The nestability is my new set of classic scallop (lg) which I'm really enjoying!
Finally, I used the stair step design to create the angel chorus card which I think is totally adorable! The poinsettia and leaves are from the Prima flower christmas tin which I'm loving!! This was a very fun card to put together. So all in all I feel pretty good about utilising that one sheet of decorated paper in these cards. My Basic Grey Wassail paper pack just arrived so can't wait to start playing with those designs!
Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!
Great to see you here and thanks for stopping by for a visit!
