Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

It's Monday, and that means that it's time to share another Christmas card!! So in between my pain meds and very large ice pack on my back I've created a card. Yay me!!! I feel like I haven't created anything in forever. I miss it and all my friends in blogland!! LOL. So this week, I'm going to work really hard to get back on track and we'll see how it goes.

At Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, we create Christmas cards every Monday. By the time November rolls around, we'll have a whole bunch of Christmas cards ready to send out!! That spells out a lot of stress relief for me! Our fabulous leader, Maria has created another super challenge for us to do. This will be challenge #15. We were given this photo to use as our inspiration. I looked at this photo and I love the teal and metallics so I chose to use these elements for my card. i used the pretty teal blue and for my metallic I used silver ink and embossed it to make it really pretty.

I used some pretty Heidi Grace paper and Bazzill cardstock. My stamp is by Inkadinkado.





Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to come by tomorrow to see what fabulous creation I have for you. See you tomorrow!

HOpe you feel better soon and be sure to take care of yourself!!
