Happy Sunday Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope you are enjoying this Columbus Day holiday weekend. Especially if you have the day off work tomorrow!! And to all my Canadian friends, I hope your Thanksgiving Day celebration is a blessed one.
I spent the weekend getting caught up on household stuff. One of the biggie things I was dealing with is a lost I-Pad. When I was in San Francisco my hubby was at the Monro Muffler store here in our community getting an oil change.
He left his IPad there and when he went back to inquire, it was gone. No surprise there. He put in a police report and I put the IPad in lost mode. So if anyone tries to connect to the internet they will get a message that the IPad has been lost and it gives his cell phone number. We also had a passcode set-up on the IPad and the Apple support teams is saying that should keep anyone from being able to use it.
The police said they will visit the store and also check pawn shops. I don't know if we will get it back but I am hoping. It is still under warranty as he just got it last Christmas. I also think I will send a letter to Monro Corporate and let them know what happened.
So now onto my card for today. This one puts me in Christmas mode and out of lost I-Pad mode 9lol)!! The most wonderful time of the year.
I made it for the color challenge #545 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was our hostess and she had a metallic gold and vanilla challenge.
I thought these colors were so elegant for a Christmas card. So that's what I did for my sample. It's has lots of layers-5 layers of cardstock and then the ribbons.

The camera just doesn't capture the shimmer and shine with this mirror gold cardstock. This was the best picture I could get.

My card is an A6 size. I used the Taylored Expressions quatrefoil cutting plate and cut it in the shimmery vanilla cardstock. Layered over the mirror gold cardstock.

The Joy word is from the Stampin'-Up wreath framelits die set. I cut in gold and 
vanilla and did a slight offset. The snowflake is from Impression Obsession and I added a few gold accents.

To complete my card I used some Stampin-Up cotton twill in vanilla and layered gold over that. Another Christmas card for my stash. I plan on making a few more in this style and these colors. I like how it turned out.
Well, my friends time to close this post. So until next time......God bless.
