season of joy #2

happy friday to you and thanks for taking the time to drop by the charmed life blog.

it is a rainy, cold day here in pittsburgh. just perfect for staying indoors with a hot cup of coffee or chocolate. i just bought some pumpkin spice coffee cream so the coffee is sounding real good right now.

I was planning on going to my grandson's soccer game this evening but the rain and cold turned me away. our youngest grandson has a football game tomorrow morning so I hope the weather is a little different. sitting in the rain when it's cold is not my favorite thing to do.

well, onto my card for today. I had our stamp club meeting at my home recently. when you are the hostess you are also responsible for designing the 3 cards that we make.

I decided to case (copy and share everything) myself. I made this card a few weeks ago and thought the girls would like it as well. I changed the papers, ribbon and added a 2nd stamp from the season of joy set. they were very happy with this card and one of them is using it for her christmas card.

I really like this satin chocolate ribbon. I bought it on clearance from stampin-up. buying supplies on sale makes my hubby happy. he will be reading this since he is subscribed by email to my blog.

that's it for another day, my friends. remember to leave me a comment. i really like hearing from all of you and i read every one.

if you are visiting my blog and you would like me to pray for you, please send me an email.

the book of psalms states: the LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.

  1. Hi Mary your new blog looks great....wonderful samples so far. I can't believe all the goodies/links you have...I'm still in the learning process!

  2. Mary,

    This is the nicest Christmas card. I love the scallop bottom. I have enjoyed making some Christmas cards like this using different designer papers. I used Sweet Slumber Specialty paper yesturday. The main colors are Ruby Red and Baja Breeze. It turned out nice.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
