Polar Bear Trio

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. Hope your weekend is going well. 

We attended a Christmas Party last night. It was a very nice evening with friends and good food. 

We started Sunday off with church and then my hubby and I were teaching Sunday school. We have the K-2nd grade kids. Our lesson was on the Shepherds watching their sheep and then being visited by the angels. The kids were attentive and cooperative which is sometimes hard right before Christmas.  

Now it's Sunday afternoon and I am finishing up addressing my Christmas cards. Some of them are going across country so hopefully they will arrive by next Saturday. I will get them to the post office by tomorrow morning.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #923 on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use fresh freesia, balmy blue and pacific point for our color trio. Optional was to use your favorite pink. I chose polished pink.

I created a slimline Christmas card for my sample this week. I started with the background designer paper. I just bought this new pack of Christmas themed slimline card fronts from Divinity Designs. The patterns are so pretty and perfect for creating outdoor scenes. This snowy scene is perfect for my polar bears. 

I used the new Polar Bear Trio & Igloo die from CottageCutz. Used the challenge colors for their hats & scarves. For the North Pole sign, I used balmy blue and then merry merlot (an allowed neutral) for the pole. It is a candy cane after all. Not wild about the shade-just a bit dark.

The Season's Greetings sentiment phrase is also a die from CottageCutz. I cut that in pacific point cardstock. Added a few more pine trees in white and that's my card.

Time to get back to my Christmas card addressing so until next time.......God bless.
