Hello Blogger friends! thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Yes, I still have a couple of Christmas cards that I haven't shown on the blog yet.
It was a Christmas season with lots of family time. that always makes me happy. Today though we spent some time with friends.
A good friend of my hubby invited us to celebrate his Mom's 90th birthday. There were about 70 people there to pay honor to this remarkable woman.
She is all I would want to be at her age. Her mind is sharp as a tack, she is physically healthy and gets around all by herself. She doesn't drive anymore but her son takes her where she needs to go. She was so blessed that so many of her family and friends showed up to celebrate with her.
Now I am watching the NFL wild card playoff game with my hubby. The Steelers are playing Baltimore and we are losing 30-15 in the 4th quarter. Hopefully this will turn around in our favor. Of course we are Steeler fans. After all we live in Pittsburgh.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made with the Stampin-Up November Paper Pumpkin kit. I really liked the kit which included supplies for 8 cards as well as tags. The tags had the "happy holidays" letters and the corner snowflake.
My background paper is from the Stampin-Up "all is calm" collection. The sentiment panel is stamped with a snowflake stamp that came as part of the Paper Pumpkin kit.
My paper bow is made with a die from the MFT Blueprints 3 die-namics. I cut it in lost lagoon card stock from Stampin-Up. to complet the card I added a snowflake in the corner.
I used this layout on several of my Christmas cards and changed each one a little for a different look. You can see the others here, here, here, and here.
Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time........God Bless.
