Happy Thursday to all of my blogging friends. Today is so special: it is my daughter’s birthday!!!!! Happy Birthday Gina!. I was supposed to be visiting her this week but since I broke my ankle, I could not make the trip. I am so bummed about not being with her today.  So, to help cheer me up, I have a card that I made before the accident but didn’t get a chance to share.


This card is being entered in The Play Date Café Challenge PDCC108

I always love this challenge I guess because color challenges are so much fun to me.  The colors in the challenge this week are so warm and cozy, just perfect for Christmas!

My card is made with MME Lost and Found Christmas.  This is my favorite Christmas paper this year because the colors are muted, warm and so rich.  My Fiskar’s crimper got a change to get involved this week by crimping the top part of the card.  The MME embellishments and the paper on the lower half of the card have beautiful red glitter, and you all know that I love glitter! 


A red satin ribbon flower and pretty little Merry Christmas tag complete this card.  The tag is made using Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s Merry Christmas Peg and the Deer Forest Stamp set.

These are all of the card challenges for this card:
