Cloud9 November Blog Hop - Good Tidings


cloud92


  Today, I am happy to be playing along with the Cloud9 November blog hop! The inspiration picture is a beauty, and I couldn't wait to make a card using it! Here is the picture:


  To make my card is used the Wplus9 set "Iconic Christmas". The pattterned paper is some of my all time favorite patterned paper that I have had for a couple of years by "The Girls Paperie". Isn't is just perfect?! I enjoyed making a Christmas card using colors other then green and red. Now don't get me wrong I love tradition, but a change of pace is always nice to.  I'm glad you stopped by today and I hope you have a great day!
