Black Tie Affair!

What a fabulous weekend......the weather was amazing and was able to get many things accomplished. Spent some time doing yard work, then off to the arena on Saturday and Sunday to watch Cammy play in a hockey tournament. The two games I watched were awesome, quite nerve racking to be exact because it came down to the last couple of minutes of play to win the tournament. The evenings were fairly quiet so was able to get a start on my Christmas cards .

These cards were cased from Running with Scissors by Leslie Miller except I used black & cream card stock and "black magic" embossing powder. The pics do not capture the outstanding glittery .... shimmery affect as in real life and depending how you hold the card what colour is prominent.

I was reading Always with a Heart by Jules and she made mention that she was uncertain about using black for Christmas. Not sure what others think of the black and cream colours for Christmas but to me they are "simply elegant" like attending a black tie affair. Here's to you Jules.........!!!!

Oh my these are so lovely! Elegant for sure.
So you were watching hockey this weekend and I was watching softball. Fun times and memories with the kids playing sports.

Beautiful cards and thanks for asking to be my friend on Paper Craft Planet. I was watching my college volleyball player play in her conference finals. She did not play much as she is injured but they did win their conference and are going on to NCAA Regionals. YAH!

Jules said...

Oh yes Brenda.

Simply stunning!!

Much easier to decide and comment when the work isn't your own. We are far to critical of our own creations aren't we.

Thanks for encouraging me to do more black Christmas cards!!!

Love Jules xx
