Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. It's a busy time of year for everyone and I do appreciate your visit. Well it's only 4 days until Christmas. I have stuff to do but not really a lot.
I am cleaning today and hopefully will get to my gift wrapping. I also have to get to the grocery store because my sweet little Phoenix Daisy will come in tonight along with her parents.of course (lol)! They get in around 11:30 pm so I have all day to finish what I want to do.
Before I start my chores, I wanted to post one of my Christmas cards. This was one I made using the colors from Color Challenge #612 on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara was our hostess and she chose cherry cobbler, pool party and mossy meadow for her color trio. Optional is to have some snow on your card. I am using basic gray and silver as my neutrals this week.

 My bells and holly are dies from CottageCutz. I cut the bells in silver and then sponged in basic gray to give them a bit of a vintage look. I thought my designer paper had that vintage look to it. This paper is from the Stampin’-Up “epic day this and that collection”. It’s a pool party background with touches of basic gray. I layered this panel with basic gray cardstock.

My sentiment is from the Stampin’-Up “all year cheer” set. I sponged pool party and a bit of basic gray on whisper white cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in cherry cobbler ink. I used a toothbrush and flicked on white acrylic paint. I am counting this as my snow for dessert. Used the CottageCutz stitched rounded rectangles to cut it out.

To finish off my card I added some holly in the corner and then touched each holly berry with some glossy accents. Well, my friends, that's it for me for today. So until next time.........God bless.
