Peace of mind for mashups!

I just love when I can mash up challenges.

Does it work for Friday Mashup as well as it does random challenge blogs? Usually not, lol!

But, in this case (for the past couple actually) Sunday Stamps and Retro Rubber have gone well together and that makes my heart happy!

Here's what I came up with:

Stamps: Dasher (ret)
Inks: Baked Brown Sugar, Costal Cabana, Strawberry Slush (all ret)
Paper: Coastal Cabana, whisper white,
Sweet sorbet DSP (ret)
Accessories: Crisp Cantalope and Coastal Cabana bakers twine, white tinsel twins from target, button, rhinestones, and snowflake embossing folder (ret), Christmas greetings thinlit.

I just ADORE Dasher! From 2008, this little guy is just an adorable way to add that perfect wintery touch to any Christmas-y card! I thought pairing the embossing folder with the banners would be too much, but once assembled I really like it! I know we're all partial to cards we make, but let me tell you, I've had quite a few duds. Sometimes they're salvageable, sometimes there is absolutely no place they belong better than in the trash :)

Not this one! Phew! Keeping with the winter, and not so much Christmas theme, I opted for more non-traditional colors, which have been ALL the rage this past year. Christmas is going glam!

Thanks for stopping by and have a stamptastic day!

How wonderful to see Dasher again! I have always loved this little guy, too!! He does look best when he is on a blingy card so I know this card will be treasured. This card has all of my favorites - texture, layers and bling. Thank you for playing along with Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again soon.
