Happy Holidays

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

Well, it's official the winter solstice started yesterday. The good news is that the days start to get longer once again. Looking for the bright side of cold, gloomy days. Another bright spot is that Christmas is only 3 days away. I am so looking forward to some great family time starting with Christmas Eve. 

I have presents to wrap and I am still making my chocolate treats, but I should be finished with all of that tonight. Then tomorrow do a little cleaning and I am all set for the celebrations.

So now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #872 on Splitcoaststampers. Jeanne was our hostess, and she chose just jade, soft seafoam, misty moonlight and fresh freesia for her color combination. Anything goes was an optional item this week. I am using jewels. Although I am not happy with the way they photographed. IRL they are so pretty and sparkly.
fresh freesia, just jade, misty moonlight, soft seafoam

Anyway, I used the Forever Fern stamp set and a template to create a Christmas wreath. It's stamped in the just jade ink. I stamped and die cut the poinsettia in fresh freesia, die cut leaves in soft seafoam and die cut other greenery in just jade and misty moonlight cardstocks. They are from the Stampin'-Up Poinsettia Petals stamp set and matching dies.

My sentiment is also from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and it's stamped in misty moonlight ink. I finished off my card by adding the fresh freesia jewels. And that's it for me for this post. So, until next time........God bless.
