Happy Wednesday!! 
It's time for our weekly "Coloring Down the Lines" blog hop!!! 

 Maybe you've "hopped" here from Helen's blog!!! Don't ya just love what she did with these colors?? Nice!!!

This week was tricky!!! Our choice of colors was Baja Breeze, Calypso Coral & Daffodil Delight, or Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red & Basic Gray!
 Now if you know me, you know the Calypso Coral & Daffodil Delight are right up my alley! But when I put the Riding Hood Red & Basic Gray with the Baja Breeze, I saw "winter"!!! So I'm saving the other combo for later in the winter when I need some "sun" in my life!!! lol

So here's what I came up with.

It's a little different than my usual style.  It's kind of "half" a card-if that makes sense!!! I didn't do anything inside yet, but I will probably stamp a sentiment under the flap & sign below so the signature shows.  
Of course the reindeer has a red nose-in honor of my friend Gail who has a little thing going with Rudolph! ;)

Here's a close up of the flap!

As I look at this picture it's hard to see, but there is a stamp in the set that looks like sprigs of mistletoe stamped on the edges. The red marker for the berries shows up, but the sprig image is stamped in Baja Breeze.  It really DOES show up nicely in person! Honest!!! lol

Well, hope you like it!! Head on over to Sandy's blog & see what she came up with! I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do!!!

Happy Stampin'!


  1. Wow, way cool Joni. I love the way you brought the colors together. I couldn't figure out how to incorporate the colors into a winter theme. Now I see what everyone has done. Very nice!!!!

  2. Thanx Helen!! I really was winter when I laid them out together. I just really wanted to use this stamp set!!! lol :)

  3. Terrific, Joni. This is such a soft pretty winter card. I could not see winter with this color combination, but you did a very fine job. Great challenge.
