Merry Grinch-mas! :)

Hello friends!

Can you believe it - just 4 more days until Christmas!
  Wow, this month is just flying by, much like Santas sleigh :)
Most of it for me has gone by in a blur since 
I'm going about 1,000 mph!
It's nice to finally get into the home stretch of Christmas
with the family and enjoy the beauty of this holy week!

I absolutely LOVE this Riley and Company stamp! He's truly
one of my very, VERY favorites - Riley as the Grinch :)
I loved the movie as child and still to this day
and literally squeeled when this Riley was released.
Speaking of Riley and Company releases,
stay tuned for January - you will not want to miss
the yumminess coming up ahead in the new year!
I'm SUPER excited!!


to create a card/project using snowflakes.
My paper is an old SU! holiday paper pack with snowflakes.
I do love the use of color and even enjoy making
non-traditional cards ~ adding in a touch of pink, or brown,
or orange or something with a twist of fun to a holiday card 
always makes me smile!  
I adore green and red Christmas cards but added
a small touch of brown in this one to coordinate with
the Grinch - I mean, Riley :)

You can find the challenge here on the blog,
along with the DT samples using Snowflakes!
We'd love to see what you create, of course!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
