Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo #41

Gooooooood Monday morning! Well this morning is so exciting! First off Megan had a little baby boy and we are so exited for her and her hubby. He is just so darn cute. So this week Sandy will be our PPC host.

How was your weekend? My weekend was really busy on Saturday it was my daughter Rythmic Gymnastic preformance. Their whole group performed a routine for us and then Kaitlyn along with another girl were the only ones to put on a ball routine. She was so nervous, but they did amazing. After we went and did some christmas shopping...don't mind saying I am soooooo behind this year and not at all organized...LOL. Sunday was my step families christmas and it was wonderful to see everyone and all the little babies...who would not love cuddling up with those honeys. We found out that their are 2 more on the way.

Enough of my chattering and onto Megan's delicious color combo! We are on Challenge 41 here at Picture Perfect Creations and it is so much fun. Hope you don't mind but I am still in Christmas card I managed to knock off another christmas card with this color combo ( it is definately not a traditional color combo...LOL). Guess, I will toot my own horn, but I think it turned out pretty good. Can't wait to see what you make for us!!! My fellow DT's rocked the crafting planet with their creations this week.

The sketch that inspired me this week is from The Sweetest Thing...thanks Karen it was an awesome sketch and it worked so well with The Paper Players challenge of a CHRISTMAS THEME. Sundays With Crissy is Challenge #12 CHRISTMAS IS COMING OR WINTER IS HERE! All of these challenges worked soooooooo good with Megan's Color combo.

Here is my creation! I used Holiday Line-Up from Stampin Up. Instead of using my fav dazzling diamonds, I got out my northern lights embossing powder and used it on the snowmen and the background snowflakes. They might have been better either versa marked or embossing in white. Oh well it doesn't always look the way you want, but I tried something new...LOL. Still got my embossing folders in though...LOL. I used stampin up markers, versa fine black ink, clear embossing powder, martha snowflake punch, white pen, pearl and gems.

Hope you all liked the finished look of this unlikely christmas card color combo. it was a blast to make.

What are you up too today? You will find me working in my sons, bedroom painting. I have learned that dark colors are hard to paint, we are now going on our 3rd coat of red paint in his room. May the third time be the charm or I just might work on the doors today, put the second coat on them and then start the other color. Soon well maybe in another 2 weeks he will be in his room and I will have my craft room back...LOL. I also have to register my daughter for gymnastic's again. Oh and do some laundry....does anyone have a laundry genie laying around? I sure could use one...LOL.

Well I should get the show on the road and start doing something! Hop on over to PPC to see the inspirational creations from the DT's (Paula, Lori, Sandy, Melissa and Megan). They really are talented ladies. Can't wait to stop over at your blog and share some love.

Sharing a smile with you and wishing you a chance to relax and craft. Hugs.
