Happy Holidays

Hello my sweet blog friends.  I made a card for Mona's CR84FN color challenge.  She has a beautiful inspirational photo I was totally inspired by.  Brown, Red, and Tan.  Look how pretty these colors are for Christmas.  I love how it turned out...minus the fact that my sewing machine about made it to the sidewalk.  It was pulling on one side more than the other.  Which is why the top piece of paper is off to the right.  I said a few words then decided to leave it for now.  hehe.
set in different colors.  I have been on this crazy path of Christmas cards and skipped Thanksgiving.This set from PTI called Wreath for All Seasons is a wonderful set to have.  I keep forgetting aobut it.  I need to put together a Thanksgiving card or two real quick using this set in different colors.  I have been on this crazy path of making Christmas cards and have realized that I never made my Thanksgiving cards.  Go figure!
 By the time I finished I was losing daylight.  I told my hubby if I only got one thing for Christmas that I needed a light tent.  I have had it with having to wait until the right time of day to photograph my cards.  I hate that they are inconsistent in light.  I am a little OCD when it comes to certain things.  Consistency is one of them.
 If I can catch better light tomorrow I will take new pictures.  They just look so washed out.  :(

Thanks so much for stopping by
Have a wonderful week
Heather

I love that card...those colors are so pretty together. I love the fresh linen color from PTI. I wish they would come out with some patterned papers in the fresh linen color as the base with other colors in a pattern.
