#GDP065 Christmas Cheer Card

The Global Design Project has a colour challenge this week and for the first time I'm taking the plunge and joining in! The colours for the challenge are Early Espresso, Real Red and Crumb Cake.
The gorgeous Candy Cane Lane papers immediately spring to mind.  I love all of the designs, but this little ditzy print has been used the most and I have used my favourite "go to" sketch as the starting point for my card.
My cable knit embossing folder has had plenty of use.  After embossing the card looks and feels like knitting, which makes me feel all warm and cozy and ready to follow the instructions given on one of the stamps in the Tin of Tags stamp set and Spread Some Christmas Cheer. 
There are just over two weeks to go before Christmas Day, and I'm not quite ready yet. So far this year I have attended two Christams carol concerts and they certainly made me feel festive.  Making and sending Christmas cards does that too, as does decorating the tree which we are going to do later on.  Then I need to write some lists... menu plans, shopping lists, to do lists.  Quite a few lists!  Are you someone who writes lists?  Are you ready for the festive season?

Thanks for popping in today.  Happy crafting.
