Merry Christmas

Good day to all!

It's Monday, which means it's back to work for me.  I would LOVE to stay home with R and my daughter, but it's too busy at work to take time off at the end of the year.  I'm thankful that they will keep each other company, and truly love spending time together.  That makes it so much easier, for everyone. :-)

Here is the next card I made with the January SSS Card Kit.  This is pretty CAS, for me, which I'm getting more comfortable with.

These colors together are one of my favorite!  The contrast of the dark purple, and light aqua are so appealing, to me.  I have a feeling I'll be using this color combo again.  It's also my first time using Perfect Pearls.  I really love the sparkle they give to the snowflakes.  To tie the flowers into the rest of the card, I added a bit of ink to the petals, which I then used to sandwich some silver and white twine from Pretty Pink Posh.  Simple and beautiful.  I dig!  I'm going to submit this card for the following challenges...

Pile It On Challenge #49: Christmas/Holiday Cards
Friday Bloggers Challenge: Holiday Cards
Christmas Card Challenge #4: Anything Goes

That's all for me today.  I'm hoping to get some more time in my craft room this week, so I have more to share with you.  I am excited about Friday though.  Be sure to stop by, to see why!

Have a wonderful day!
