Our Nest To Yours

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. Ours was a great family time. There were 10 of us here for dinner. Everything was so delicious and I received many compliments from everyone.
My daughter-in-law is such a valuable resource in the kitchen. I don't have to tell her what to do or how to do it. She is a great cook and very comfortable in a kitchen. Such a blessing to me.
Now it's time to get started on my Christmas decorating. I really don't do Black Friday shopping anymore. I do a lot of online shopping on QVC & HSN. You get such great deal and prices from both of them. I have made quite a dent in my Christmas shopping starting in July.
I have also made a big dent in my Christmas card making. This card is one of them. This one I created for a weekly DT post on the CottageCutz blog. I just didn't get to post it to my Blog previously.
I used the Winter Birdhouses to create a Christmas card. It's part of the Christmas Part 3 release. I used the sketch #719 from Splitcoaststampers for the card layout.
I cut the birdhouse with old olive and cherry cobbler cardstock. The background is embossed with the softly falling embossing older from Stampin'-Up.
The sentiments are from 2 different set. I used the holiday home (PTI) and nest (ODBD). The background paper is an older design from ProvoCraft.
For another idea, Here is a link to another card I created using the other birdhouse in this set. I used the same layout but different pattern paper and colors. To complete my card I added a few sequins.   
Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time...….God bless.
