Blue Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Well it's officially here - snow!  Ugh, I hate the cold and the snow but it comes every year no matter what I think or say.  Go figure!  But, with snow on the ground, it has gotten me thinking about Christmas more often.  So more Christmas cards it is!

I spent today crafting with a lovely friend of mine and I have a few cards to share with you over the next few days and weeks.  Love days like today - crafting then dinner and a movie with some fabulous girlfriends.  Now if we were just wearing flip flops, it would have been awesome!

This week we have another fabulous sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

And, here is my creation for this week:

It's hard to tell but that sentiment is embossed in silver and is stunning.  I coloured within the sentiment with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities and I love the effect.

I will also be entering this card in the challenge over at Inkspirational.  This week they have a Word Prompt challenge and it's "Shine".  With all of the shiny silver on this card, I thought it was perfect!
