DTBST # 156 - Blue Christmas

Good morning, my friends!  Are you enjoying the holiday season?  I know I am!  I love spending time with my family, and I really love giving presents, so this is a great time of year for me.

Anyway, the reason I'm posting today: it's time for a new Dare to Be Sassy Thursday challenge over at Sassy Studio Designs!  Woot woot!  This week the challenge is:

Blue Christmas!

I love using blue for my holiday cards. It gets so cold up here in Minnesota during the winter, icy blues definitely feel authentic.  I would love to be able to have a warm, sunshine-y Christmas...but all of our family lives up here in the cold, so here we stay. LOL

Here is my blue card:

Now, if you know me you know how much I love my punches.  I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punches, and I was SO excited to be able to use my new Creative Memories tag punch!  I created this card the day I got the punch because I wanted to use it so badly. LOL Papers are from DCWV.  The image is, of course, from the recently released Pin Up line (I just LOVE these images!).  It's Snowman Pin Up and is available in the store.

Ok, ready to play along?  Head on over to the Sassy Studio Designs Blog to see what the other Sassy Sisters came up with and to link up your cards.  I hope to see you participating!  Thanks for stopping by!
