Joy Snowman

Hello blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Well I was back in the kitchen making pesto again today. I still have one more batch to make and will do that tomorrow. I have 4 containers in my freezer for fall or winter enjoyment. That always makes me happy on a cold winter day. 

My day started early (7:30 am). I usually am not up that early except on Sundays for church. I was able to get out to the grocery store early and then to my gym appointment with my trainer. I am feeling a bit sluggish right now, but that should go after I get dinner made and I eat something. If not, I will be in bed a bit earlier tonight.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #849 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was our hostess and she chose Granny apple green, poppy parade, coastal cabana and mango melody for the color combination. Optional was to use designer paper. 
Well my card took so many twists and turns today and I ended up with a Christmas card, and I had in my mind a floral card (LOL)!!! When I thought of Christmas I had a completely different idea than what I am showing. I started getting frustrated so I cased this card of mine. It was just one of those days. So now I have my first Christmas card of the season.

Anyway, I used the CottageCutz Joy Snowman die and cut the letters in poppy parade and the snowman is sporting the other challenge colors.

My background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "follow your art" designer paper. Even that changed from what I was originally going to use.

The image panels are embossed with the Stampin'-Up "softly falling" folder. To finish off my card, I added some coastal cabana ribbon and scattered some snowflakes. The larger ones are from the Nov 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit.

Well, that's it for me for this post. Time to get dinner started. So until next time........God bless.
