Some Christmas Inspiration

So what inspires you with this photo? I immediately went with the colors - I saw Tempting turquoise, Always artichoke and Certainly celery. Well this is the challenge over at Christmas Stampin' All Year, create a card or project using this photo inspiration.

And here is my card using those colors. Simple, yet fun! And isn't that what making Christmas cards is all about? We put so much pressure on ourselves everyday, even more so at the holidays, so simple and fun should now be our motto! I used a PaperTrey Ink set and coordinating die, Tree Trimming Trio.

Phillip called me yesterday from Ireland, he sounded VERY tired. Not only did they have the flight over (and were expected to sleep on the plane), but they had a 5 hour lay over at New York's JFK airport even before they left! But he was excited about the sights they had seen so far, and their adventure has just begun! If he sends me any pics, I will post them.

Simple and Fun is a great motto for the holiday season! You did a wonderful job translating the colors from our inspiration photo onto your lovely card! Thanks for joining us this week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long!
