Delight-fall Friday

So glad to be back in my loft this evening. It was a delightful fall day today. My boys had some friends over and we had some adult guests over for dinner; it was a win-win for everyone. And I love it when I feel like everything just falls together perfectly.

Today I popped in on some of my favorite blogs. I found a really cute sketch over at Retro Sketches. Here is what the sketch was:

And since it's been a while I also looked over at CR84FN Color Challenge to see what color palette I could use for inspiration. Here are the soft colors I used for my card:

And here is my first Christmas card that I made in these wonderful neutrals. I couldn't be more pleased with how it came out!
There were lots of creams and tans and grays used to make the mittens and stockings. I took the sketch shown above and just flipped it upside down and put the banner at the top.

There were lots of fun layers I used to make this card. And, of course, I had to add some MS glitter to the teeny weeny clothespins that are holding the stockings.

Thanks for stopping by! Oh, and those dishes are just gonna have to wait until the morning. One load in, another to put off till manana. :)
