Let It Snow

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Can you believe it is the Saturday before Thanksgiving? I love celebrating this holiday. It's one that evokes many happy childhood memories in me.

My son & daughter-in-law will spend the day with her parents. We share this holiday as it should be. My husband's family isn't coming this year. My sister-in-law is recovering from a surgery and my mother-in-law wants to spend the day with her.

I invited my bff-this is the first year we will celebrate together. She usually travels to Virginia or has her family here. But that didn't work out this year so she & her hubby will be with us.Whoo-hoo!!
We also will have a young couple from church that we have taken under our wing. They are from Texas and have no family locally.

I bought my turkey today-a strapping 21 lb bird. And now the week long preparations will begin.

I wont be spending much time card making this week but I do have one to show you today. I made this one for the sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. This is the layout we were to work into a card.

My mitten image is a spellbinder die that I cut in pretty in pink cardstock and then embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder "dots". I added some ribbon and pearls for a trimmed edge.

My background is also a cuttlebug embossing folder-"snowflakes". The 3 squares are spellbinder rectangle dies and I stamped a snowflake in the middle from Verve's "winter wishes" set.

I punched a tag and added some of the curly white trim. The sentiment is from Stampin-Up's "tiny talk set. Some pearls were added to complete my card.

Well it's late and time to close this post. So until next time.........God bless

Some other challenges:
1.  CES challenge blog has a snowflakes challenge.
2.  Just Some Lines blog has a tic-tac-toe challenge. I chose embossing-ribbon-punch or die-cut.
3.  Winter Wonderland challenge has a "cute Christmas image". I think pink mittens fit this.
4CCEE Stampers has a 2 diecuts or punches challenge.
