Pink in December

     Hello there, so how are all of  you doing? I know  this time of year can be so  hectic and just plain busy .  I am extra  busy as I have several December birthdays  as well as Christmas to get  taken  care of ..add in  5 grand children  and  it sure can get  even more hectic around here . .But I love  to see them get excited  about Christmas, it makes it all worth while .

    My first card was for my  oldest grand daughter that just turned 15.   She was also in  a school play very recently ~  they performed  Oliver Twist ~  I must say I was  so amazed.   These students  did a spectacular  job ~  we are blessed with a music  teacher that goes  one step beyond  with these kids.  She sees their ability  and  gets them  to achieve  so much.
   I wanted something  a little different than a typical teen age card.  After her  grown  up role I decided on this...In her world , you can never go wrong with hot pink and black   : )
I let the  title on the music sheet be the sentiment on the front of the card  and  on the inside it said " to beautiful you "  with  pink and black trim .
I did spritz it with a touch of gold shimmer  before I gave it to her...that really  glitzed it up   and made the gold shimmer on the ribbon  blend in so well .

    Next I did a  card  for  the TPT group on SCS  again.  And wouldn't you know, it was to use a hint of PINK with silver  ornament  or snow flakes   ...  you can read the story here

I used a piece of  shiny silver mirror card stock under the layer of pink pirouette snow flakes . I hope  the shiny silver  ornaments and  soft pink snowflakes  can carry a message of HOPE to Marlene  this year ...I wish her and her family A Very Merry Christmas and a New Year full of  Blessings

Thanks for  taking time out  of your busy schedule to  visit...  I hope your holiday season is going well.
And that the gift of love  and  time shared with those you love  is at the top of your list ..

I hope to see you all again  real soon , Take care...



  1. Both cards are beautiful, Sonja. I love that pink with the silver ... just so subtle and soft. The card for Ali is perfect! :)

  2. Soni, you weren't kidding about her performance. Saw the video that was shared and WOW! Can't believe how big the kids are getting.

    That card is darling. Okay, both of them are, lol.

    GREAT creativity! :) Thanks for sharing more inspiration.


    1. So glad you stopped in Tam, and so happy you could see some of what Krista put on face book was a great performand by all

      I see things I wish I had done to these cards now... some day when I am not in a hurry or behind maybe I can get it right : )

  3. Both cards are lovely, Soni. I loved the one for Ali in that it just fit the 'broadway' theme. So proud of her. But that Christmas card is very contemporary and feminine.

    1. I wish I had used silver cord to hang the ornaments , sure would have finished it off ~ maybe someday I will not be in a hurry or distracted...

      thanks for stopping by Kel

  4. Hey Kiddo! Wanted to stop by on Christmas Eve to say hello. Wow, 5 grand kids can sure make Christmas magical huh? Wishing you the merriest of Christmases and the happiest of New Years! Best, Curt
