It sure has been a tough one for our country. So many people hurting. The challenges seem overwhelming; the chasm, so deep... so wide.
Making cards is about bring joy, hope, and encouragement one card at a time. Seems like a small thing, but it's something. One card at a time...
I'm here tonight to share a card inspired by the current Jingle Belles Color of Christmas Challenge. But first let me give a quick shout-out to one of our SAS4Kids card makers.
The cards below came in this week from first-time sender Sherry Chaney of OHIO!!! Thanks so much, Sherry. The kids will love these cards. :)
My Color-Me-Crazy Jingle Belles Card
Then I looked at the picture even closer and was struck by: the red package (with the pretty white bow) under the tree, the white accent pieces, and the light gray wall. So, I came up with a card that a Buckeye would love. (Totally unintentional, I swear. Please, don't hold that against me. LOL)
I opted for a darker gray so that the white-accented packages would really pop. And, I chose to alternate red and green, picking up green from the tree.
And, I'm so happy with the heat embossing on this card -- thanks to using my new embossing buddy -- that I'm going to share this in the Heat Wave Online Card Class Day 1 Gallery. Class just started today, so there's still lots of time to play along. :)
See you on Wednesday with a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge. Until then, thanks for stopping happy scrappin'!
