Blue Christmas Greetings


Happy Wednesday, all!  I am squeaking this card in by the skin of my teeth! I haven't made many Christmas cards yet this year, and here it is, the end of January!  My card today uses three challenges:  Little Red Wagon's Winter Blues; Jingle Belles' Look What Santa Brought Me, and the sketch from Fab Friday:


My card is fairly clean and simple; my new set is from Paper Smooches, and it's called All Yule Need; I stamped it in Blueberry Bushel on a piece of Authentique paper from the Alpine collection, then fussy-cut it and added a Soft Sky mat.  The sentiment is from the same set, same papers, as is the darker blue panel:


For fun, I added a couple of little glimmer stars from my scrap folder, both punched with retired SU star punches:


Everything went on a Soft Sky card base, and I stamped a simple sentiment on the inside, and I have another card to add to my holiday stash!

This morning, the sky was bright blue, sunny and cold!  At 2pm, this afternoon, this is what it looked like:


A quick little snow squall blew through and lasted about 15 minutes....but it's even colder now than it was before!!  Poor little birds, I need to refill their feeder and suets!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Love that little tree and all of the blues you used on your festive Christmas card. Looks chilly outside - we are forecast snow tomorrow too, although hopefully not as much as you! Keep warm!!
