Joy Snowman

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

Hope your Christmas celebration was a nice one. My son and daughter-in-law decided not to come for Christmas dinner. It was a bit tough for me at first and I had to work through it. They didn't want to bring anything here or have us give them anything. I completely understand that but it still doesn't make it any easier. 

My son in California called us to Facetime in the morning and we opened gifts together. My granddaughter was so excited as most kids are for Christmas. We stayed with them for about an hour so that was so nice.

Then my son here in Pittsburgh called us after dinner and we had a FaceTime call for about an hour. Technology is so wonderful when you aren't able to visit in person. 

Now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #820. LeAnn was our hostess and she chose gorgeous grape, highland heather and balmy blue for her color trio. Optional was to add a bow and/or ribbon. 

I thought these colors would be great for a snowman and I had this new Joy Snowman die from CottageCutz to try and make it work.

Started with the card layout. It's an older sketch #514 from the Paper Players. The 3 panels work well for this image.

Then I chose my background paper. It's from the Stampin'-Up "snowflake splendor" collection. Perfect to cover the balmy blue and highland heather colors.

The "joy snowman" is cut in the challenge colors. The image panels are embossed with the Stampin'-Up "softly falling" folder.

To finish off my card I added some balmy blue ribbon and a few snowflakes cut from the designer paper. And, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
