Blue Christmas

Hello!! Can you believe it is only 9 more days till Christmas?? Where has the time went? I have most of my shopping done but haven't wrapped a thing! Hoping to bake some cookies on Saturday if it suits my Mom to come over. We like to do the old fashioned sand tarts. Takes alot of work but they are fun to decorate and taste good too!

Today's card uses the December Poinsettia digi from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! It is also available in a stamp set. I Love seeing all the variety of colors they have the Poinsettias in now. I can't actually have a real one cause they are toxic for my fur babies plus I would probably kill it anyway!! No green thumb here, I've almost killed my Christmas Catus several times!!! ;0)

I kept my card CAS and went with Blue for a more non traditional card. I used my Sakura clear glitter pen on my flowers/leaves and finished it off with tiny silver pearls. With the glitter pen and metallic cardstock it has a nice little sparkle. Thanks for stopping by!
