Blue Christmas

Happy Monday, all!  A quick little card today, a Christmas one for the Jingle Belles, and the theme of their challenge is Blue Christmas!  This image from an Artistic Outpost set called Snowy Woods, and it's one of my favorites:

It was stamped on Papertrey's Rustic White cardstock, which is similar to SU's Natural White, in Dapper Denim ink, then mounted on a Dapper Denim card base.  I just love this rustic-looking St Nick!

I stamped some pine cones around the outside edge, added some silver ribbon trim and a few little silver stars in the sky!  Another card for my stash!  And the sentiment on the card is from a poem from Robert's a sweet poem, if you Google it, it's a nice wee little read!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...I must say, it was a lovely Mother's Day in the Pugliese household!  The sun was shining (finally), Wayne took Cassidy shopping and got a sweet little mug set - one for me and one for Cassidy - and they say "Grandma and Me"!  So cute!

Then he made dinner for all of us:  steak, shrimp, broccoli, pasta salad and tossed salad:

And then he and Cassidy assembled some strawberry shortcakes for dessert:

Aren't they fabulous-looking?  And best of all, he cleaned up the whole kitchen!  It was delicious and a real treat for me and Dana!!!  Thanks, Wayne!  And thanks for everyone for popping by today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for my Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

What a pretty Christmas card, LeAnne! Just love that Dapper Denim color!! WOW, Wayne sure spoiled you & Dana! We had the steamed shrimp Saturday evening and the steaks Sunday for Mother's Day but I think he topped off your meal perfectly with the strawberry shortcake! Yummy! Good job, Wayne! Oh BTW, is Dana jumping ship on me...she's wearing an Eagles sweatshirt!!! Ughh! LOL Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day....and I loved the cups, too! TFS and enjoy your day! :)
