Merry Pocket Card

The base paper of this card is a mystery to me. There's no name on it, but if I remember correctly, it was part of a prize I won for a challenge a couple years back. The color is beautiful... even more so IRL... and blends wonderfully with the ivory and whites I used with it.

The church scene is one I purchased online. I gave the roof a blanket of "snow" with my Twinklets Diamond Dust.
Side note: If you notice the miss use of words in my posts lately, it's because I've upgraded my Mac with the new El Capitan and it doesn't think I can spell. Good night!!!!! It seems to change the spelling of every other word I type.

The ivory flowers are all from I Am Roses and the pine and holly leaves were cut with Alterations Thinlits Holiday Greens. They all have a coating of matte medium and Twinklets DD.

The other dies I used are Prima's pineapple doily, Spellbinder's Classic Ovals and Floral Ovals. I used my We R Memory Keepers Scallop corner punch as well.

This morning the Penmaker, our DIL, Granddaughter and I drove over to Berlin for some much need produce. We seldom go over on a Saturday, but since we need to eat regularly and they have the best fresh foods, we decided to make the trip. The reason we don't like to go on a weekend is simply one word... tourists. Wow... so many of them. During the week is bad enough, but on a Saturday it's bumper to bumper. Thankfully, we were early and beat most of the crowd... and we're rewarded with a fridge full of oranges, grapefruit, salad fixings, and other goodies.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh it's beautiful! Love those colours and the glitter is such a pretty touch! Been thinking about changing to Captain too ... Just a little nervous of change...

Wow Linda, another stunner!! The soft muted tones are so appealing to me, I just get sucked right in to the shabby feel! Great image and I love the bit of snow you put on the roof and foliage!! Gorgeous! hugs :)

Utterly gorgeous! Love these colors to pieces and the beautiful way you layer die cuts to create such depth and intricacy in your creations. Thanks so much for the info on the dies, I never know where to start in looking for them on line. Don't have many and want to get just the right ones.
