Published by at 11 54 pm under Uncategorized

Non-traditional Christmas Colors — I know I do this every year, but it’s a personal favorite of mine!  Let’s make Christmas cards or projects today in NON-traditional Christmas colors.  So that means NO typical red and green. Personal favorites of mine for Christmas are Bashful Blue, Amethyst, Celery, Pink or Rose. Can’t WAIT to see YOUR favorites!!!

Anyone is welcome and invited to play!  SCS Keyword is ssnotime165 for those who upload at SCS.  There is no time limit. You can play this challenge anytime at all.  The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!!

And here’s my Christmas card in non-traditional colors for today:

I went with pink and white, clean and simple!  I used a new CLING JustRite Set, Sparky and Friends,  patterned paper from the Yuletide Mat Pad (available individually or in KIT form), a bow in Pink Tinsel Sheer made on the Bow Easy, one Kaiser Pink Rhinestone and I sparkled up the edge of the snowflake circle with a glue pen and SU Dazzling Diamonds.

Sparky and Friends – $19.95

Cling Mount Rubber — use with any standard acrylic block
