Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night.
Tonight's card uses one of my favorite sets from the SU catty this year. Cardinal Christmas.
I combined two challenges - Lesley's Christmas challenge for the Paper Players this week - who could resist that challenge? Don't forget to join us this week.
I also checked out the challenge at Playdatecafe this week and they were having a color challenge. So, I combined the two challenges. I don't often just work with red and white, but actually had great fun.
Of course, the red that I chose had to be Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the Medallion background stamp on the base of the card and embossed it with White embossing powder. It's really subtle, but adds a little texture to the plain card stock. You can see it better in the bottom of the photo.

On a personal note:
Lots of fabulous, fluffy white stuff fell yesterday! It certainly is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. We must have had about 8 inches in the snow on our deck can be believed. We are finally putting up the decorations and lighting up the new arbovitae's that we planted earlier this year.
Today, we went shopping for toys. It is the annual local TV station toy drive for Christmas Anonymous. It's the one time of the year when I am able to go shopping for dolls and trucks and skateboards and snowbards and hot wheels and lego. All the sorts of things that I hope some deserving, under-privileged children around the area will love to find under their tree this Christmas.
As always prayers for Germaine, Arthur, Rose, Pri and Adelle. Also for those of you who need a little lift.
I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday - filled with love, laughter and time spent doing the things you love.
