Shiver Me Timbers...It's Cold Outside!



Hello Everyone,
I hope that you weekend is off to a terrific start and hopefully the weather isn't so cold that you have to bundle up like Claudia & Co. PJ Winter Ella yet! *lol*

I have been super busy creating holiday cards and I'm having so much fun with the new Puddle Jumpers! I played around with different design paper patterns and came up with this colorful holiday card. I know the patterns are a little "busy" but I was having so much fun and one thing led to another. I have traditional Christmas colors, glittered snowflakes, ribbon and even a bell!

Well...I'm going to bring my post to a close. I have to prepare a quick dinner and attend an anniversary dinner this evening. Take care and have a beautiful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
