Let it Snow

Happy Tuesday!  Its getting closer and closer to Christmas.  How are you doing with your shopping?  I've got about half of mine done and should finish up within the next day or two.

In the meantime it's time for another {Pin}spirational Challenge.  I have to confess that I messed up with this one.  You'll see when I show you the inspiration photo and then my card.  Here is the photo that we were to use as inspiration.
Gorgeous isn't it!  And I had really planned to do a blue/silver card for the challenge.  I love those colors together.  So how did I get this card?????
Do you see any blue or silver on this card?   Me neither.  < sad face >  I just must say that it's been a crazy week and I totally pulled the wrong image to use for my card and decided just to go with the Christmas theme and not the colors.  So here we are.  One of my girlfriends did tell me she thought it was the best Christmas card I made this year.  < smile >
