christmas snowman

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

Well, I think winter weather is starting to set upon us here in Pittsburgh. It was a cold but sunny day.

It's funny but people have their Christmas decorations out and we still have mums growing in pots on our front porch.
My husband commented the other day that he thought his irises were coming up. We have had really warm days here for this time of year.

I had some great news today from California. My youngest son lives there and he is coming home for Christmas.

His email made my day. He usually comes home at Christmas time, but he also waits until the last minute to buy a ticket. So he always leaves me in suspense.

It will be such a joyful Christmas celebration. My grandsons just love "Uncle Brett" and so does Mom.

Well, now onto my card for today. I mentioned I am still making Christmas cards and I need some quick cards. So I went back to the stampin-up Christmas jingle kit for some of the elements on this card. My snowman is from an old stampin-up set called "holiday hello".

The layout for the card is one of the Monday mojo sketches. I saw this card on the blog of butternut sage designs. Thanks Donna for the inspiration.

Well ,my friends its a wrap for another day here in charmed life land. Talk to you soon!!

  1. Love your cards and blog--it's now on my bookmarks list. Funny how the weather can change overnight. I was out and about yesterday in warm, sunny weather; but today it's snowing like crazy in NJ! Stop by my blog when you get a chance and leave a comment or two.

  2. Awesome card! You got two birds with one stone!!! It rained for two days then the cold set in. In Florida the cold usually doesn't last long. So glad your son has made plans to come home and keep the suspense out of your life for now.

  3. This is such a cute card. You should also add this on Hope's Blog for her cupcake challege as it fits perfectly. Here is the link:
