merry & bright

Happy Saturday and thanks for visiting the charmed life blog. It is quite a snowy day here in Pittsburgh as well as on the eastern part of the U.S. We have about 5" of snow right now in my area.

I didn't get to go to my cookie exchange today. But, we rescheduled for tomorrow after church.

So I managed to get a few things accomplished here. I picked up a few more Christmas gifts. I still need to wrap everything.

The mall is only 4 minutes from my home and our township really takes care of the roads well. So after the plow and salt truck came around I ventured out.

I have more to do here so after this post its back to work for me.

My card today is for 3 challenges. I haven't had the time to do many challenges lately but today I squeezed this card in. It was simple and quick.

The our creative corner blog challenge for this week is to create a winter themed card featuring snow or snowflakes.

Then, sharon johnson has a challenge to use anything on your card that says snow. Sharon has the no stamp to stamp blog.

My 3rd challenge is the stampin sisters in christ challenge to use bling on the card.

So as you can see my card has snowflakes and bling.

I used stampin-up real red and whisper white cardstock. For the snow requirement I had a chipboard snowflake from K&Co with bling added.

I also used the cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and some stampin-up snowflake rub-ons.
I added white ribbon and used the ms lace doily border punch and that's my card.

Well, my friends it's a wrap for another day from charmed life land.

I close with this blessing for you: I pray the Lord bless all the work of your hands this week-end.

card recipe:
paper: real red, whisper white
accessories: k&co chipboard, su rub-ons, cb ef, white ribbon
