Papercraft Star Challenge #122

Hello hello!

I hope you're having a good week!  As you read this, I'm currently in Iowa, visiting my mom again.  We're hoping that all goes well in court this week so that we can finally be done with everything.  I'm also hoping that a certain situation, that I've had in the works for a while, plays out as well.  I do have to admit that I miss the Texas weather right about now though.  When I got up this morning, it was 18 degrees.  Brr!!  In Dallas they've been in the high to upper 60's all week.  I can handle the cold, but the wind here makes it bone chilling.  Thank goodness I remembered my coat this time.

So, I have another project to share with you today.  The theme at Papercraft Star this week is:

Holiday Greenery!
Here is the card that I made for this week.

I seldom make traditional colored Christmas cards, but the photo was so pretty, that I couldn't help myself this time.  And, did you notice?  I used my Copics. lol  I love how the wreaths turned out.  I wanted to keep it simple this time, and think I've managed to do a good job of that.  I know several people in my office were wanting just red and green cards, so this will be taken with me on Monday. 

I'm happy to have been able to combine the following challenges in my card today.

Stampin' Sisters In Christ #167 - Christmas Cards (sad to read that this is their last challenge)
Corrosive Challenge #163 - Anything Goes
Cards for Men #24 - Merry Christmas (my card is pretty masculine this time, in my opinion)
Kaboodle Doodles #147 - Stripes and or Polka Dots
My Grafico #141 - Anything Goes
The Paper Girls #20 - Christmas

I do hope you'll head over to the PCS blog to see what gorgeous projects are posted for you again this week.  To say that I'm among a group of talented women is an understatement.  I'm always SO inspired by my teamies!  You should check them out!

Before I go, I'll share a photo I took from the plane on my flight into Omaha.  This was right before we landed.  I should have known it was going to be cold up here this trip.  I love how the frost even freezes in the shape of snowflakes, and how it contrasts against the wing of the plane and the farmland below.  Super cool to see!

Have a great day!

First Steph that card is really cute! I do like how it is a clean and simple card but the colors do a lot of work to make it looks just so pretty! Next that photo of the plane window is so cool looking! That should be an inspiration photo!
