. . . without you!!
Do you remember that song?
Today I have a blue Christmas card to share with you which was made for the challenge at Joan's Gardens. This week Joan & Selma have asked us to create with these things in mind:
Use something oval
Use an embossing folder
Make a blue and white card
Add a ribbon (maybe a bow??)
I recently purchased this image from Joan and thought it would be perfect stamped in blue. What do you think? The ribbon really is the same color as my background paper but for some reason my camera doesn't like photographing blues & purples in their correct color hue! I'm sure it's just a setting and maybe AFTER the holidays I'll have time to check into it.
Recipe for this creation:
Papers: SU Brocade Blue cs, white cs
Stamp: Stampendous 'Cling Snowy Postcard'
Ink: Tim Holtz Stormy Sky distress ink
Accessories: Cheery Lynn Designs B117S Fanciful Flourish Sm., Cheery Lynn Designs B147 Holly Flourish, Cuttlebug border embossing folder, White Jelly Roll Pen for faux stitching, Offray Antique Blue Satin Ribbon, Icicle Stickles, Waterfall Stickles, Kaiser white pearls
This creation also fits the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge this week which is HAPPY HOLIDAYS.
And a few other challenges are:
Brown Sugar Challenge - You Have Me In Stitches
Craftymess Challenge - Vintage Christmas
Delicious Doodles - Anything Christmas with Blue
Pause, Dream, Enjoy - Blue & White
Raise the Bar - Blues & Whites
The Stamp Man - In the bleak mid winter
Stampin' for the Weekend - Let It Snow
My decorating is all finished and since I received our first Christmas cards of the season, I guess I'd better get started on addressing ours and get them in the mailbox! I hope you are enjoying your holiday preparations as much as we are!
Until next time and as always . . .
