Merry Monday #134 and Virginia's View #9

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  No snow so far here in the middle of the mitten.  I know it's good for the deer hunters and putting people in the Christmas spirit but I hope it holds off for a little while longer.

Speaking of Christmas spirit, I've been playing along with Merry Monday the last few challenges to get my cards done. This week's challenge was a beautiful one.

I'm generally not a blue person.  I know, shocker,  Who doesn't like blue?!  It's not that I don't like it, I just prefer other colors, but I gave in and made this.

I had this wonderful blue foil paper and embossed it in silver with stamps from SSS and Essemtials by Ellen.  The chain die is from Poppystamps, cut in silver - the same silver used for the mat.  Now that I look at it on the screen, it almost looks gold.  Why is that?  The camera? the computer?  the operator?  Probably the latter.  I need to work on that. ;-)

Since I used all that blue and silver metallic, I'm also sending this over to Virginia's View.

Thanks for stopping by.  I always appreciate your visit and comments.
