Peace on Earth

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

The Christmas countdown is in progress. I hope you are on track with all your Christmas preparations. I just finished all my decorating. It takes longer than I plan but oh so worth it when it's finished. 

Now I need to move onto finishing up my cards and getting them in the mail. I have about 35 cards made and I just need a few more. I have a couple of the Stampin'-Up Paper Pumpkin kits sitting around and the designs are more simplified. So, I just may finish up another 10 cards using those kits. 

I am not sure about all the baking and candy making that I do each year. I give a lot of the treats away, but I always eat more than I intended to especially with the chocolate treats. Who can resist good chocolate candy (LOL)??? I have to decide soon because time is running out. 

Well now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #868. LeAnn was the hostess, and she chose crumb cake, soft succulent and evening evergreen for her color trio. Optional was to use a die.
crumb cake, soft succulent, evening evergreen

For my card, I used the new Peace on Earth Phrase die from CottageCutz. It's cut in the evening evergreen shade. I added a berry sprig and some pinecones on the image panel. I placed the phrase in a stitched label die. It's from Stampin'-Up. 
The background paper is from the Stampin'-Up "Painted Christmas" collection. It has all the challenge colors.

To finish off the card I scattered a few soft succulent gems. And, that's my card for today. So until next time .......God bless.
