peace...love...joy

Hey friends!!  Happy weekend!!!  After all our crazy windy/rainy weather we have switched to sunny and cold!  I will definitely take sunny and cold over windy/rainy because windy/rainy caused us to lose our power on Tuesday afternoon for about five hours.  It happened right as the kids were getting out of school so thankfully they didn't have to spend a lot of time in dark classrooms!  I have a card to share for a couple of challenges:  Colour Me...! and Merry Monday (use a reindeer).   Also going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  Christmas.  I used the sunburst image from my favorite Stampin Up! set Kinda Eclectic as a backdrop for the deer head that I die cut using my A Jillian Vance Design Stately Stag die.  The set comes with the fun little sunglasses and nose dies so I turned my stag into a cool Rudolph!  The sentiment is from the PTI Winterberry set.  The panels were die cut with my A Jillian Vance Design Rectangle Backdrop dies... I do not think it is possible for me to make a card without them now, lol!!  I added a few sequins that were a close yellow to the one I used for the starburst and I was done.   I really wished I owned a stamp that said 'have a cool yule' as I think it would have been fun paired with the deer, but unfortunately I don't.  Oh well...

 
 
Thanks for stopping by today... and thanks to those of you who take the time to leave me a comment... I really appreciate it!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI rustic white; Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler & Soft Suede; Stamps:  Stampin Up! and PTI; Inks:  Hero Arts Poppy, Memento Tuxedo Black; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design; yellow sequins

Such a fun card, Rosemary! Never would have thought to use the sunburst! Slippery deck & fog going to work, but then lots of beautiful sun--cold here, too.

What a fabulous pairing of the sun burst and the sunglasses. Such a fun west coast holiday card. This so stood out to me in the MM gallery. Love it.
