Play Date Cafe Color Splash



Hi there ... how's it going? ... Did you all enjoy your Halloween weekend? ... It was very quiet here and we didn't have many "trick or treat" callers at all ... seems my friends noticed the lack of callers too ... hmmm ... I'm just popping in with a little card for the Color Splash challenge over at Play Date Cafe ... such a pretty picture 



I went with another Christmas card ... trying to get as many as I can done ... here's my effort ...


I love this holly stamp ... It's an Anna Griffin and I picked it up on Ebay ... the sentiment stamp is WM and that beautiful lace is from my swap partner Chriss Blagrave. I used flower soft for the 'snow' on my poinsettia and added touches of glitter to my holly.
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments of late ... I really appreciate each and everyone ... I am still struggling without a kitchen sink but the work is well underway ... then I discovered that the cupboard doors that have been delivered are the wrong ones! ... Why did I know that would happen? ... Seems it will take another 3 weeks to get the right ones ... Thank goodness I'm at Practical Philosophy tomorrow to ensure I don't get stressed ... just let everything go .... Actually it makes me realise just how fortunate we are ... some people don't even have running water or kitchens do they ... so I am thankful for all I have ...

Till soon my friends ... keep safe
Ros

I like the color combo on this one is not the traditional one but still makes it look brilliant. Great philosophy Ros and you're right we must focus on our blessings rather than on our problems. Hope your kitchen is sorted out soon.
