Peace, Love and Sparkly Stuff

Happy Sunday!

I can't believe the weekend is almost over already.  It seems like just a few minutes ago, the weekend was just beginning.  I'm happy that it was pretty relaxing around here, and that I was able to spend lots of time in my crafty space.  I feel so refreshed to have my creative mojo back.  I love being able to build my stash again too.  Here is the next card I have to share with you.

I think this is one of my favorite Christmas cards this year, so far.  And, I love that the jingle bells jingle. *giggle*  I am determined on mailing cards out this year, with a photo of the four of us, so I'm glad I have another to add to the box.  I'm going to enter this into the following challenges.

Jingle Belles: Taking A Header (create a card based on their blog header)
Merry Monday Challenge #118: Ribbon & Buttons (thanks MarieB for introducing me to this challenge)
Christmas Card Challenge #35: Anything Goes

This card helped inspire something we have been working on lately.  As of 9pm last evening, we now have colors chosen.  The wedding will be small and intimate, with family and close friends only, surrounded by deep purple, silver and black.  We're still working on the guest list, but at least we're making progress on everything.

I really love the deep, rich purple and since it's a winter wedding, I think it fits perfectly.  I think he'll look very handsome in a gray suit with a black vest and deep purple tie.  I'm off to finish laundry, and head out to watch some of my daughters friends play in the beach volleyball tournament today.  It's only supposed to be a high of 76, so it's going to be fabulous outdoor weather.  I hope ya'll have a great day!

Stay crafty my friends!
