Happy Tuesday Friends!!  I hope you all are doing well!!

Our Daily Bread Designs, Chris Olsen, Holiday Ornaments 1, Poinsettia Wreath

With each passing day it is getting colder and looking more like winter.  I love each and everyone of the seasons although the cold is my least favorite.  I do love winter for the beauty of the snow or the coziness of looking out at the blustery day with a blanket or a blazing fire in the fireplace.

Today I am popping in to share a Christmas card I made for today's Shining the light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs and the color challenge at SC (SC452) which is to use at least three of these colors: Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo, Pool Party and Smoky Slate.
