5/6 Pottery Barn Christmas

Can you believe it? The temperature has dropped 15 degrees in the past hour! That's Minnesota for you. We started the day so gorgeously. My daughter and I ate lunch on the deck, I pulled brats out of the freezer to grill for supper and now we are sitting at 59 degrees and dropping. Huh? I've got to golf in league this evening in a turtleneck . . . for the fourth Tuesday in a row!! Will I ever be able to put my turtlenecks away for the season??

The blog called Great Swaps Girls issued an Inspiration Challenge today. The picture above is from Pottery Barn Kids and it was to be our inspiration. I was immediately inspired by the dots that made me think of snow, the green that made me think of Wild Wasabi, and those big splashy spots on the back wall reminded me of a stamp that I have in SU's Little Pieces set.

Since my mind was on snow . . . I started thinking about Christmas. I need to get back on the ball with my Christmas cards so I decided to make a fairly easy Christmas card as I wanted to make 10 of them. This is also a card that my customers can choose to make at my Christmas Take Ten nights. Thanks to the inspiration challenge, I was able to come up with something fairly quickly. I just love the colors: Kraft, Ballet Blue, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate and Whisper White.

Supplies I used to make this card:

Stamps: Peaceful Wishes, Holidays & Wishes, Little Pieces, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Paper: Kraft, Ballet Blue, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, Wild Wasabi, Ballet Blue, Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Double Stitched Purely Pomegranate Ribbon, Dimensionals, Chunky White Glitter
