~ Holiday Car ~

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
Hope your Memorial Day celebration was a good one whatever you did. Our community has a parade each year in honor of those who gave their lives for our freedom.
It's also the "unofficial" start of summer. In our area, people use this day to get their gardens in-plant flowers or just do work outside. My hubby was out in his yard all day. He works so hard to keep our yard looking beautiful. As for me, I was inside and up in my craft room. Both of us were so content, doing what makes us happy.
This morning my friend is coming over and we are going on a bike ride. I just bought a bike at a garage sale. I don't intend to do any serious riding just to get some additional exercise. We are going to a local park that has a bike lane and will give us about 4 miles of riding area.
I  wanted to get a card posted before I leave for the ride. This one I made for the color challenge #636  on Splitcoaststampers. Roberta was our hostess and she chose old olive, tangelo twist and cherry cobbler for her color trio. Optional was to use ribbon or twine. There is twine holding the tree to the top of the car-even though it's paper (lol)!!
As soon as Roberta selected these colors, I thought I would try and make a Christmas card. Working the tangelo twist was a bit difficult, but I managed it.

I used an MFT stencil and some 3D molding paste to create a snowy background. As soon as I removed the stencil, I sprinkled dazzling diamonds glitter. IRL it's quite sparkly.

My Christmas car carrying the Christmas tree and gifts is a die from CottageCutz - Holiday Car. The pine tree is also a die from Cottage - "Woodland Friends".

I cut a hill using a die from Lawn Fawn and added chunky glitter to the top. Stamped my sentiment and added a few candy dots to complete my card.
Well, that's it for this post. Now I have another card to add to my Christmas stash. It's 3#.
