Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Wow the busyness of the season has me going. I just finished my Christmas cards and will get them in the mail tomorrow. Then I have to finish my inside decorating. I am really excited for that. I love all the decorations and lights.
Today I went to my friends home and we made candy together. Its become a tradition with us now. She said to me today-with names like "Mary & Holly" how could we not do something together for Christmas.
We made all chocolate candy-chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate covered oreos, chocolate peanut butter sandwiches and cashew clusters. It took us 7 hours, but it is so worth it. I give this candy to my grandsons and neighbors. They all love it.
So onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #353 on Splitcoaststampers. I am the hostess today and I chose the regal color trio of cherry cobbler, crumb cake and always artichoke.
My image is from Just-Rite Stamps-the "O Christmas Tree" set. I stamped it in cherry cobbler and then again in always artichoke. I cut some of the artichoke pieces and layered it over the cobbler.
I used the spellbinders pennant and lacy pennant dies to cut the image. I also used the Spellbinders “poinsettia die” for a corner embellishment.
My ribbon is Stampin-Up’s quilted satin cherry cobbler ribbon and I added an angel button to my bow.The background designer paper is from Bo Bunny “Father Christmas” collection.
A star placed atop the tree completed my card.
Well, it's time to get back to my Christmas preparations. So until next time..........God bless.
