Tis the Season

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

Well, it's 2 days before Christmas. Hope you plans are going according to schedule. I finished up my baking yesterday. Today my plan is to run the sweeper, dust and clean the bathrooms. Then I will be wrapping gifts. 

We are having a very cold and blustery day here in Pittsburgh. Just a bit of snow but I think that's finished for today.  I don't have to go out since I did all my food shopping last night. 

Now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #921 on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use bermuda bay, melon mambo & granny apple green for our color trio. Optional is a snowman. And if you take the option you can add pumpkin pie. A snowman without a carrot-colored nose just wouldn't do!

I started my card by stenciling snowflakes on the designer paper. It's from the "oh so ombre" collection by Stampin' Up. I used an icicle embossing powder and then the snowflakes turned clear. In hindsight, I should have used white embossing powder to make them standout. I did use clear wink of stella for a bit of sparkle.

The snowmen are from the Snowman Friends die from CottageCutz. Their scarves & hat are cut in the challenge colors.

I cut the "tis the season" phrase in melon mambo. It's also a new die from CottageCutz. Used some dazzling diamonds glitter on the snowbank to complete my card.

Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
