Pink and white snowflakes

I just adore non traditional colors for a Christmas card. When I saw the latest Clean and Simple challenge over on Splitcoast to use pale pink, kraft, old olive, and white, I jumped at the chance to make a fluffy pinky krafty Christmas card. :) Because, the reality is, we have Thanksgiving in two short weeks, and then soon after it'll be time to start sending out those cards. I'm not ready! Clean and simple cards are my absolute favorites for mass production, and this one fits the bill.

I used the gorgeous snowflake set, Winter Wonderland, coupled with the coordinating dies, Winter Wonderland Snowflakes. I don't know about you, but I'm head over heels in love with all these new sets that have the matching dies. Pure genius I tell ya! And I know you've seen me die cut the snowflake on acetate before and then glitter it up with Frosted Lace Stickles, but I just had to do it again. It's a nice subtle POP! :)

So a lot has been going on in my household that I haven't mentioned here. For one thing, we bought an RV!!! My husband has been begging me to go camping, and let's get real here, I'm just not a campy type. I need a comfy bed to sleep in...with air conditioning...and heating...and without bugs! So the compromise was the RV. :) We got a whopper of one measuring in at 33 feet long. The kids have their own area to sleep in with 2 bunk beds so they can invite friends later. We are planning our first trip and I am just THRILLED! Now that's MY type of camping!

Lot's to look forward to! Hope you are having as much excitement.

Thanks so humbly for your visit :)

Congrats on the RV...saw a photo on FB and would love to see the inside. RV is the ONLY way I will "camp" and it has to be with full hook-ups! LOL!
