Christmas is a time of Joy!

Good Morning! I hope this posts finds everyone in really good health. This last weekend and the start of this week the flu arrived in our house. We tell it every year that it is not welcome but for some reason it feels free to stay...LOL. On Sunday we had our first Family Christmas party of the season and it was one filled with great company and lots of laughs.

It was another amazing turn out last week at 4 Crafty Chicks. The awesome coloring, cool layouts, and creativity was wonderful! We are on week two for December and we are lucky that our hostess with the mostess this week is our one and only MELISSA.


I had so much fun with this color combo. Right away this glittery paper I bought popped right into my head, then the layout. The paper on my card, the twine, the stamp set, top note and jewel are from Stampin Up. The glittery espresso color paper is from a craft store from a town near mine. Of course the texture is from a snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug. As you can see it is another clean and simple card. I don't think this picture does justice for the glitter on the paper, but oh how I love it.

Be sure to stop bye Leanne, Lori and Melissa blogs because they have made some super fabby creations. Also check out our Guest Designer: Dee, she is going to be joining us for her second challenge this month. Thank you so much for your awesome card. Pop on over to see her inspiring card she made for her second challenge with us.

We had an awesome week last week, so I am hoping we can keep it going with our new color combo! I have so enjoy checking out all of the beautiful blogs and creations that you share with us each week. Please come and join us for a week of fun at 4 Crafty Chicks.
