Just Chillin

The weekend is finally here! I am planning to decorate my Xmas tree today. I have been looking at an empty tree for a couple of days now and it's ugly! I had to run all my errands early today because we are expecting about 5-6 inches of snow tonight. I hate driving in the snow.

Isn't this little guy cute? He's from Kraftin Kimmie stamps. He comes with a saying that says Just Chillin'. I thought that was cute with it but I wanted a holiday saying so I typed it out with the rest of my saying on the computer. I liked the Bo Bunny paper I used for the middle squares but it was shiny and didn'tlook good with my CS so I painted the CS with shimmers before I ran it through the cuttlebug. I stamped the snowflakes with a Rubberstamp tapestry set I have. I love the snowflakes in this set.

This card came about when I saw the Color Create challenge of Lilac with Aqua, Black and White. I actually dug into my stash of SU Caribbean. I don't have much so I hoard it. I don't know why but I do.

The sketch is from Friday Sketchers. I always like cards with the squares but I never think to do it so when I saw the sketch I knew I had to try.

There were 3 other challenges that came to mind when I was making this card. Crafty Cardmakers theme is Alternative XMAS, Spoonful of Sugar was Non-Traditional colors and Paperplay was Xmas without Red & Green. I knew I wanted to participate in these but didn't know what colors to use. I like the aqua and purple.

Allsorts posted their theme today and it is to use purple on your card. I like taking a break from Red and Green.

Thank you for visiting today. Let me know what you think. I love reading your comments.

CS: SU Cool Caribbean, Lovely Lilac
