Holiday Hugs

Happy Tuesday! Hopefully you have had a great weekend and for us US folks, getting ready for Thanksgiving! I will be traveling North to spend time with family and friends. Just hope it's not too cold, lol. It was close to 80 degrees here this past weekend. Love it!

My card today is for the SCS Color Combination Challenge~ Blushing Pear Mist. Joanne is our hostess today and her dessert option is to make a Christmas Card. I love these colors for a non-traditional holiday card! I saw a poll on Facebook last week about traditional versus non-traditional colors for cards. I think the poll results were pretty much split 50-50. I am one that loves non-traditional colors. I turned over that leaf when I moved to Florida. I have a white tree and the color scheme is Pink, Turquoise and Lime Green! So Joanne's colors today are not not far off of mine.

I received some new MFT goodies last week and just had to stamp this adorable snowman. He is colored with Copics and and being a guy, is not afraid to wear pink...hee. The card layout is this weeks MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch. I glittered up the snowflake and heart. The green panel is spritzed with Perfect Pearl Mist.
