season with smiles

hello from charmed life land and happy wednesday to you. I am posting earlier than I usually do.
meaning that its before 5:00 est. we have plans to go out to our favorite pizza place tonight.
we haven't been there in awhile, so I am looking forward to it.

we used to go every week and the pizza makers used to call my husband by name when we walked in. if friends were with us they just laughed.

well, onto my card for the day. I don't think I have ever made a monotone christmas card before, but I like how it turned out.

I made this one for the flourishes challenge. it's the first time I have participated in one of their challenges.

I used the stampin-up christmas jingle kit again. I love all the elements from this kit, I am determined to make all the christmas cards that I can from it.

I used 2 new cuttlebug folders-winter borders (it has this great house and tree border) and also seasons greetings-it provides all the background words. I added some red faux brads and a hero arts poinsettia and that completed my card.

well, its a wrap for today. I send a blessing of peace as we are about to enter the busy, christmas season. keep a smile in the season and don't let the busyness of it all take away your joy.
card recipe:
paper: su textured choc chip, vv
accessories: christmas jingle kit, ribbon, hero arts poinsettia, cb ef
