A Blue Christmas

I'm obviously NOT talking about "feeling blue"; it's just that I tend to get a little tired of always seeing red and green Christmas cards.  I was browsing some blogs last night, and I saw a really pretty Christmas card that was made with blue tones.  It really caught my eye so  I decided to give it a try.  It's very different, but I do like it.  We even got some SNOW today in Minnesota.  It's beginning to look a bit like Christmas!
These papers are from My Mind's Eye.  I got them, and the other Christmas embellishments, from a friend who was cleaning out some of her older supplies, and I'm always more than happy to take hand-me-downs.  I had fun creating my "Blue Christmas" card.
I really love these rusty bells!  I found them on EBay.  If you want the link, here it is:  Rusty Jingle Bells.  Just between us, the ones at a certain stamp shop on-line aren't very good because the rust doesn't stay on.  Let me know privately if you want to know which ones NOT to buy.  I don't get to spend time crafting very often during the school year because of my crazy work schedule, but today I'm obviously not working (no school - hurray!) so I made some cards.  I'm going to link up my card in the following challenges listed below (and a few more if I find some more challenges that fit my card).
I hope that your Thanksgiving was wonderful, and that you took the time to be thankful to God for all your blessings.  I know that I am so grateful for all that He has done for me including my job, my family, my salvation, and SO much more.  Thanks for visiting me.
