Christmas card for the week

Hi friends, hope you aren't keeping track of my Christmas card totals for this year, cause I'm not keeping up! But when I saw Sparkle's sketch challenge yesterday I was inspired. This is Sherrie from Rubber Romance.

I started with a Christmas dsp and ended up scrapping it, but sticking with the colors, so a non traditional colored card. I think this one is good, too, because in recent years, I'm finding I need more winter type cards that don't specifically say Merry Christmas. We live in a very diverse community and many of our friends don't celebrate the same holidays we do. Really great learning experiences for all of us.

Thanks for stopping by today. We are still having heavy rains. Found out at the bus stop this morning that several of our neighbors had flooding in addition to lost power over the weekend. Hoping our sump keeps doing it's job!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Sherrie from Rubber Romance
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI ssw, Pretty in Pink, Blue Bayou, Baja Breeze
Embellishments: copics, stickles, MS border punch, nesties, SU ribbon, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, dew drops
