Dreaming of a Silver and White Christmas

Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a nice weekend...we had rain, sun, more rain....but it was still nice!  I haven't made a Christmas card for a while, so I thought I'd throw my hat in the Christmas Card Throwdown, which is looking for silver and white, the Krafty Chicks Christmas challenge, and the Fab Friday sketch: 

I still have lots of  Feels Like Frost DSP, and despite the challenge it is to photograph, I used it anyway:

I used two patterns for the sketch, then diecut some poinsettias from Thick White Cardstock, adding silver centers and berries, then heat-embossed a sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas with silver embossing powder:

Here's another angle....still difficult to capture with the foil!

Saturday was spring clean-up at church.  LeAnne stayed home while the rest of the family raked, pulled leaves and got very wet and grubby!!!

We have a fairly large piece of property; there is a manse on the opposite side of the church as well; the property still has horse sheds from when people used horse and carriages to come to church!

Cassidy got right to work:

But they did get to take breaks, LOL!

Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

In Michigan, we don't rule out snow until the end of April - yeah, it isn't fun. But Spring seems to be full-on, and we're enjoying every ray of sunshine, and drop of rain!
I'm also enjoying this beautiful silver sensational Christmas card! AND these hard working girls!

This one is a stunner LeAnne! That silver is impossible to photograph but you can tell it's awesome anyway! I like the cluster of flowers for the center element! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

A beautiful crisp silver and white colour combo LeAnne - you are doing a great job with those Christmas cards! Cassidy looks like she had a super-busy day - loving the wellies!

Wonderful shimmer on your lovely card, LeAnne! We had the same kind of on and off soggy Sunday here. Saturday was gorgeous and the neighborhood was a buzz with lawnmowers and trimmers!

Just love the silver and white, stunning card! You need to post photos again when all the trees are full of leaves, I bet it's just just beautiful. Thanks for sharing at Krafty Chick this week!
