holiday wishes...

Hello friends!!  Another gloomy day here in Western Washington.  We have had fog, again, for several days and not only does it make things gloomy it makes things really chilly.  Perfect to stay inside and do some crafty and maybe I will later... who knows.  The Seahawks play tonight, but not sure if I will watch... not a huge football fan.   Anywhoo... have a little card to share that I made last night, but modified just a short time ago.  After I took the photo of the original version I realized it was a "hot mess".  Looked good last night, lol!!   Popping this into the current Merry Monday challenge (use snowflakes), as well as the current Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.


I usually don't make Christmas/holiday cards right after Christmas unless I'm making them for a publication call, so it was a bit odd for me to make one, but I guess it is never too early to start them, right?  Loved the Merry Monday inspiration photo and just had to play along.  The stamps and dies are from Reverse Confetti.  Patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Merry & Bright collection.  Dark brown, aqua and white is a good combo no matter what kind of card you are making!  I cheated a bit with the mini clothes pin.  It was too bulky as is, so I took it apart and used only one side.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SSS Fog; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti Seasonal Sentiments; Dies:  Reverse Confetti Tag Me, Too, Tag Me and Let Is Snow Confetti Cuts;  Spellbinders plain circle die PTI Aqua Mist button; DMC light silver metallic thread; brown mini clothes pin; Ink:  Stampin Up! Chocolate Chip
