Blue Christmas......

Good Morning!
I hope you all had a great week-end!
Today is the start of another challenge over at
(BTW ~ did you see there new mini Gardenias?)

Anyways the challenge is Blue Christmas.
I took it literally and used this adorable Mo Manning
digi image. As soon as I seen it I thought it was perfect
for the "blue" challenge. I also used blue papers as well
to make sure to get the point across. LOL

The papers are from Websters Pages and I have distressed the
edges with my scissors. The flowers, lace and pearls are all
from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The December calendar image
is from a retired CHF stampset. The better not pout is as well.
Also it is not really crooked ~ the card is actually at a slant
so the sentiment looks out of whack! I looked at it on here
and went to retake the picture and it was fine! LOL

Here is a close up of the naughty little girl who will have a
blue Christmas if she doesn't behave.  It just cracks me
up. Love the moments Mo Manning creates.

Here is a close up of the new flowers from WOC.
They are Hellebores and they are available here. 

I also want to mention that there is a blog candy going on
at the Wild Orchid Crafts blog that includes the new
Mini Gardenias and it includes all the new colors.

Well that is it from me. Thanks so much for stopping by
and playing along in the challenges! It is always a pleasure
to stop by and see the creations!! Sorry I have not had time
to comment on them though!
Hope you all have a fabulous start to your week!
