~season's greetings~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Especially during this busy time of year when we could all use a few more hours in the day and a few more hands to help us out.
I have finished decorating. Yay!! I was working on cards yesterday and  I decided that I am finished there as well. Once I get on a roll with Christmas cards I could keep on making them. It's such fun.
Are any of you like that? Which once again makes me ask myself why don't I make them throughout the year so I don't have this last minute frenzy. Hopefully, I will change that this year.
I pick-up my grandson after school on Tuesday's so when I return tonight I will start addressing the cards. Don't know if  I mentioned it before but on Friday I fly out to San Francisco. I am going for Phoenix Daisy's birthday. It's a short trip and I return Monday evening.  She is so excited that I am coming out. She turns 4 this year. Where has that time gone?
Now onto my card for today. This is another one I made using the color combo from CC506 on Splitcoaststampers. It was rose red, mossy green and basic black.
I used the Stampin-Up "bright and beautiful" stamp set and matching star framelits.
The star ornament is 2 stars stamped in rose red. I scored down the middle for a 3-d effect. I hung the star on a piece of black glitter paper cardstock.

Added some rose red seam binding with black ric-rac and a black metallic sequin center. Die cut some stars in mossy meadow with the Verve starry night die.

My layout is from a card I saw on Sandi MacIver's blog. She made her card in green and gold. I wanted to try that color combo just didn't get around to it. Oh well, maybe next year (lol)!!
Well friends it's time to close this post. I have Pre-School class this morning, So until next time.......God bless.

  1. Such a beautiful card, Mary! I love the 3D effect. I enjoy making Christmas cards yet there is always a point when I've had enough. Usually though it is past the number I really need and there are a few extras. Safe travels!
