Blue Christmas

Hello friends!! Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you're here in the states.  It is always so comforting to have family, food and a fire going at Thanksgiving.  Just CAN'T understand why it takes around two days to prepare all the dishes, 20 minutes to eat, then a few hours of clean up....you've gotta wonder about the absurdity of such a thing! LOL...Well, I finally got a card made and have started on Christmas.  This sweet card is done in my favorite color combo (blue and white).  I have always been a lover of anything that is just these two colors.  My wedding china is blue and white and I still love it after all these years.  Enjoy!



I used just a few supplies:  Cricut Cartridge 'Joys of the Season' I used the snowflake pg. 60 and the Tree pg 63.  Cuttlebug folder - Snowflakes, VersaMagic ink in Aegean blue, Paper by K & company and Cordinations, and one little Heidi Grace button.  Pretty simple, huh?  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Hope you all have a GREAT December and that the holiday spirit is in your heart and home! HUGS
