Brown, silver and grey

Hello, everyone!  I really missed you all over the holiday.......I hope you had a lovely together time with your loved ones and lots of yummy turkey and all the other traditional foods, too!  We were away for a little over a week visiting family.  Loved being with them, but I'm glad to get back to normal.  We arrived last night with a few neighbors' Christmas lights to welcome us home, and I was instantly switched over to Christmas mode!  So I've changed my blog a bit to reflect that.  This week we will put up our tree, decorate a bit inside, and put our Christmas candles in all the windows - love the welcoming feel they give at this time of year.

The Play Date Cafe challenge has given us another challenging set of colors: brown, grey and silver.  I almost didn't try, but I'm glad I did......once again, I really like the results once I played a little with these colors; they are so calming together, and I hope I chose the right theme to reflect this.  Here is my submission for this week:


Supplies:  2 shades of grey, kraft and brown cardstock, Hero Arts K5256 Winter Pine, CL459 Merry Christmas Trees (sentiment), CL462 Magic of Christmas (smallest snowflake), Our Daily Bread Peace and Joy (large and medium snowflakes), Ranger Super Fine Detail silver embossing powder, clear embossing powder (sentiment), Hero Arts Clear Mixed Gemstones, dark burgundy embroidery floss
