Farm Truck Christmas

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Saturday before Christmas. 

I have been neglecting my Blog because of finishing up my Preschool Christmas projects and then our Christmas program. But, now I am officially on break until January 2. The time off will be great to get refreshed and ready for the 2nd half of our school year. 

I have so many of my Christmas cards to show so I will be posting regularly until the end of the year. This one I made for the color challenge #764 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was the hostess and she chose old olive, pool party and poppy red for her color trio. As an optional she wanted us to use silver accents. 
old olive, pool party, poppy parade
This is also my card for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the Farm Truck w/Tree die to create my card. 

The truck is cut it in poppy parade cardstock and then I sponged poppy parade around the truck for a bit deeper red shade. 

The hubcaps are cut in silver cardstock to cover the optional and the door handle in pool party cardstock. The designer paper is part of the "Night Before Christmas" collection.

My Merry Christmas sentiment is from the CottageCutz  "Merry Christmas w/friends" die and is cut in poppy parade and again I sponged poppy parade ink to get a deeper red shade. I cut a small slope and added chunky glitter to give the truck a grounding spot. 

Well that's it for me for this post. Hope your Christmas plans are right on schedule. I am a bit behind but hope to make a big dent today. So until next time.........God bless.
