This is the first time I've sat at my desk for the last four days. They've been busy, busy, busy, but not hectic. I did have a chance before all this holiday activity to make a few cards for my friends who do not celebrate Christmas. The inspiration piece at Time Out Challenges was perfect, and once again, I had a pile of silver snowflakes on my desk which made for some quick and easy, but I think, elegant cards.
I seem to have a navy, white, and silver thing going for the holidays this year. The card I sent out to most folks (I'll post it when I'm sure everyone has received their cards) also followed the same color scheme.
I made four cards, but there are two identical ones. All of them use Papertrey Ink's Dark Indigo cardstock and a sentiment from "Stylish Sentiments: Holiday." The snowflakes were cut with dies from Papertrey Ink's "Silver White Winters" and My Favorite Things ""Stylish Snowflakes." All the silver paper came from Michaels.
And my favorite:
I hope your holiday preparations are going well. The six-year-old and three-year-old granddaughters were here yesterday to make cut-out cookies. We had a great time, but it was good there were two of us present, as Ella lost interest long before Skylar who has had two years of previous experience in Grandma's kitchen. I should be able to finish the cookies today. Then there is just one last shopping run to get gifts for my son-in-law. I'm looking forward to lots of time with friends and family over the next week or two over lunch, breakfast, and visits. We'll be entertaining for lunch tomorrow, on Friday evening, and then again on Christmas night. That, truly, is the best part of the holiday!
