Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
It's almost a wrap for 2019. This year whizzed by so fast for me, especially the last 3 months. I am looking forward to what 2020 will bring though. Even Christmas seemed to come quickly and now it's in the history books. Although it was a great family time and my son and his family are still here visiting. They will leave to go home this weekend.
While the house is still quiet and everyone is asleep I am posting another of my Christmas cards. This one was probably one of my favorites for 2019. I created it using the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #769. Jeanne was the hostess and she chose pretty peacock, so saffron and rococo rose for the color trio.
pretty peacock, so saffron, rococo rose
It was also my card for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.
I am using the CottageCutz Nativity w/Donkey die. I cut a circle from pretty peacock cardstock and stenciled stars with white ink.

For the stable and the manger, I used ivory cardstock and sponged it with walnut stain distress ink. The hay is cut in so saffron and sponged with so saffron ink & dried marigold distress ink.

The sentiment is from PaperTrey ink and I used pretty peacock ink for stamping. To cover the rococo rose color, I scattered a few faceted enamel dots in that color.

Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time...…..God bless.
