Holiday Hugs

My card today is for the Split Coast Tuesday Teapot challenge as well as the 300th Color challenge!

For the color challenge we were to pick any of the past color combinations. I chose CC11 which was more mustard, mellow moss and brocade blue. My dessert option is to use dry embossing on my card. I used the Tim Holtz Bricked folder for my background.

For the Tuesday Teapot challenge Cindy had some wonderfully decorated teapot cookies to inspire us. My card will be going postal to Canada this week to Felicia who will be spending her first Christmas without her husband who passed away this year.

Don't forget to check out the Waltzingmouse 12 Days of Christmas through 12/17/10. Today my dear friend Anya has a lovely home decor project to show you! And Wednesday Lisa will have something to share.

ETA: You'll also want to check out the PSA Blog for some fun ornament ideas!
