I'll Have a Blue Christmas



Happy Saturday to you all! Another gorgeous weekend day today; a bit on the chilly side but the sun was shining brightly. The Doodle Pantry Design Team got their new sets to work with today. I am so excited for this October release coming up on the 1st. Eighteen new sets that are just wonderful. I haven’t started working yet but I can’t wait to get going.  Later tonight my son Dan will be home from Utah. I’m looking forward to spending some time with him. He’s leaving to go back to Utah tomorrow evening so we don’t have a lot of time. Tomorrow he’s taking me to the Colts game as a birthday present. I am so excited to spend time with him at something we both enjoy. Go Colts!
My card today is a bit out of my comfort zone but I liked the way it turned out. I usually work with an A2 size card but once I started cutting things for this one I knew it wasn’t going to fit on 4 ¼ by 5 ½. So I made this a 6x6.


Here’s the materials I used: Quick Cutz tag dies, Memory Box Winterland Tree (from Joan’s Garden), Brazill Basic Blue Paper (for the card base), Peachy Keen Chill Baby Chill Snowman Stamp Set (snowman image), sentiment from TLC Creations, Baby Blue Stickles. If you are wondering how I attached the trees, I used a special glue that I bought from Joan's Garden. It's called Glue and Seal and it dries clear so you can add it to the top and bottom of the small areas. It great!

Challenges I am entering:

·         Joan’s Garden challenge: use a tree and a snowman, the colors blue and white, and have a corner piece
·         Speedy Fox and Friends challenge: make a tag

Thanks for stopping by today. Watch for a special post on Monday as I am a guest designer for the Paper Makeup Stamps challenge. I am so excited about that! Stop back and play along with the challenge this week. Have a wonderful Sunday!
Hugs,
Donna
