Blessed Christmas



To everyone out there in 'blogland', Blessed Christmas! All the busy work of the holidays is done, and I might even have time to do a little baking. ALL presents bought, wrapped, and where necessary, mailed. The true meaning of Christmas has been in the forefront of my mind, and because I've emphasized that, the other Christmas duties have gone awesomely well. Feels really nice. Later tonight, we will get some snow for our white Christmas, though not nearly the amounts that have been falling west of here. Still getting rain here.

I need to thank the super DT over at CASology. My card got an Honorable Mention, for which I am grateful and pleased about. So many fantastic cards made by so many talented ladies. Be sure to head on over to check out the winner and other HMs, as well as playing along for the next challenge.

Onto this card...I made a special card for my most wonderful, bff, Jennifer. I was very inspired by the Sweet Dreams photo over at Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger. Some of my favorite colors here:


And who doesn't like gingham??!! I knew I had the perfect paper in my hoard (yeah, I saved this piece for just the right project....)


The gingham, blue, and gold papers are SU. White is from Bazzill.  Some SU snowflake stamps, as well as Stampabilities, and Paper Smooches. Making Memories stick pins. Gold Stampabilites ink. Random ribbon. I like it, and I hope Jen does too. She's been warned not to peek before she gets it! Happy Dances and Christmas Blessings to everyone!

I love what you did with the trigger - I was hoping to play along, but my brain is feeling frazzled - I think I need a few days off (hopefully next week), so I'm not sure that I'll get to this challenge. You've captured the dreamy feel perfectly! And I love the pins - to me they represent the plant on the nightside table.

Beautiful! You have absolutely nailed this inspirational challenge! Your elements tie in perfectly with the trigger. I'm glad Ardyth pointed out the pins! I picked up on the gold border on the window blind and the gold panel on your card! And who doesn't love gingham? Well done Bev!
