RS39 ~ More Christmas Blessings ~

I must apologize in advance.  I KNOW this must be the gazillionth Christmas card I've done as of late.  But I just can't stop myself!  And even though my tree isn't up and my house remains almost entirely devoid of decorations (how did that happen?) I continue to crank out holiday cards.   (Maybe I need to stop creating cards and starting putting my tree up...) 

Here's another one based on last week's Retro Sketch...




and the sketch...


Another nontraditional color palette... kraft, blue and pink... Isn't it yummy? If you look closely one little corner of blue paper is peeking! Thinking that tree may not make it up for a while... ;-)

Until next time... blessings...

I love what you've done with this sketch because it is still uniquely YOU! That's the best part. I wish that I could say I've done a gazzilion Christmas cards...not the case. I am stressing out over my craft boutique tomorrow and Saturday, and I'm SO NOT ready. Oh well.
Thanks for sharing this with us in our challenge this week, Lori. It's always a blessing to have you play along, and I always appreciate it SO much.
Blessings,

Hі theгe wοuld you mind sharіng whіch blog plаtform you're using? I'm going to start my oωn blog in the neаг futurе
but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something сompletely
unique. P.S My apologiеs for being off-toρic but I had to ask!

Lori, the delicate touch on each petal of the flower, the embossing, those 2 pearls and that ribbon and bow are just perfect. What a card. The sentiment is wonderful. Thank your for posting with us at WAW.
