Curtain Call 61...Happy Holidays!

Happy 4th Advent!!!

How fun....Christmas is just a few days away and I can't wait to celebrate this joyfull event! As a Christian it's one of the happiest days out of the year I can think off!!! Besides hanging out with my family I/we don't have anything planned and I'm sooooo enjoying my days off :) !!!

Before I tell you all about today's Curtain Call Act 61 colors I would like to share a photo of my sweet Miriam. She celebrated her 6th birthday on Friday. I can't believe my baby is already so grown up...sniff!


Okay, so onto Stacey's awesome color combo for this week...check it out!!!


I loved the snowflake idea on the inspiration photo and thought I'd run with it.



I used the Flourishes Warm Winter Wishes Set. The snowflakes were inked randomly with the required colors and I added a tag from the PTI Tag 1 Die. The sentiment is from the Flourishes Holiday Greetings Set and the flourished image above and below the sentiment is from the Flourishes Many Sentiments Set. The card was finished off with some matching Satin Ribbon, a SU Crumb Cake Button, some Silver Beaded Cord and some Silver Pearls....voila!!!

Don't forget to check out the Curtain Call Team for their ideas ~
