JOY

Major computer problem this morning, but hopefully resolved & worth the cost of fixing it.  So scary thinking about the consequences of stolen personal info.  
On a happier note, I did make another Christmas card last night.  The MFT Color Challenge is so beautiful & I wanted to use my  recently acquired MFT High Rise alphabet dies. The die cut negatives are backed with a striped paper & spritzed with Perfect Pearls before being mounted to a dark red scrap.  Two of the MFT Let it Snowflake dies are cut from a darker gray paper, covered with Rock Candy Distress Glitter, attached to each other with a foam dot & embellished with a dark red pearl.
A lighter gray cardstock panel is attached to the card front & then the JOY panel. Not sure I've ever used this color combo for Christmas, but now it's one of my favorites!  I'm also entering Christmas Card Challenges, HLS Anything Goes with Dies & Virginia's View. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  2. Cute card Greta, the peppermint stripes are fun! So sorry about the computer issue. We've had our credit card # stolen twice. One, we firmly believe, was a waiter at a local restaurant, the other a mystery!

  8. Every day there is a new story of computer hacking and it is scary out there. We all need to be extremely careful. I'm glad you are all fixed up with no bad results. I love your choice of color for this card. That dark gray snowflake is beautiful and the candy canes are so cute with their sparkle.

  16. Hi Greta, your card is beautiful with the large letter cut-outs and stripes, very creative. We can't live without our computers and also without hydro... ours was out all last evening and part of the night. We had a nice quiet relaxing evening talking :) Take care, xxx
