O come let us adore him

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Also a shout-out of thanks to all the veterans who have protected the freedoms we enjoy here in the United States. God bless you all!!

I went over to my Stampin-Up demo's, house today for some stamping time. We had a fun 4 hours. We made a really cute scarecrow card that  I will post tomorrow. I worked on some Christmas cards as well.

Well, I made one Christmas card and then was doing the prep work to make about 10 more of this particular design. I willl post that one in the next few days as well.

My card for today iscovering 2 challenges:

1.  The sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers. The layout was a real easy one to work with and I could see me using it again for some other Christmas cards.

I had these Christmas rub-ons that I bought last year at Michael's on clearance. The card has lots of shimmer but the camera doesnt pick up all he sparkle.

The metallic paper on the card base is from the paper company- "uptown gold" and my gold middle layer is from Stampin-Up. The background paper is metallic textured paper that  I bought years ago from Provo Craft. I really like the paper. So I am not sure why this pack is unopened until today.

I added some gold cord and that completed my card. I have 3 of these rub-ons left so I am going to use them with this layout.

2.  The ABC challenge blog had a theme challenge "H" is for holiday.

Well, its late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for today. So until next time......

card recipe:
paper: uptown gold (paper company), su gold, provo craft gold
