3 Clovers Thursday Challenge 39---No RED or GREEN



Happy Holidays!

Where the heck have I been you ask?  This is my busy crafting season and that does not include much stamping unfortunately. I am getting ready to bake cookies and start my annual wood craft or sewing project (see post here for 2008 projects)(past wood projects here and sewing projects here) and also finishing a quilt for my grandson Cole ( a Christmas project I started  last year..hmmmm.)
And then I have to get all my Christmas trees decorated. Now,  I don't even come close to Suzanne Dean...she puts up 10 I think! Crazy girl...I only have 4...

This is my card for this week's 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge. Kerry asked us to make a Christmas card without the standard Christmas colors of red or green.  I chose to use this cute Peanuts stamp and used basic blue and brown.

Doesn't Charlie Brown and Linus look like  they are wearing little Carhartt coats? (that's a brand of brown work clothes for those that aren't familiar with the name).  I glittered the snow to add lots of sparkle. I used a fun sketch for this card...but darned if I can find where it is now...brain cramp! I also used my new little bow maker. It is not a Bow Easy, but a different brand, but it looks exactly like a Bow Easy and only cost $2 in a closeout sale...what a deal! I used Sharon Johnson's Bow Easy tutorial here to figure it out! I am always challenged when it comes to pretty bows, so I used this new little toy and boy am I pleased!

I hope you all can join us this week and make a Christmas/Holiday card without the usual colors of red and green. The DT samples are quite fun this week, so go take a peek and be inspired!

SOOOOOO CUTE! I just love Charlie Brown and Linus.

Just 4 trees!!? I only do two now that our boys are grown and that's quite enough. I checked out your wood creations...love, love, love that stocking. Did you make up your own pattern? Like I said...the house next door is for sale...warm weather year round. ;-)

Great card Sue! Such a cute image and great colours.

Wow you have so many plans for the holidays! I have looked at your wood creations and they are fabulous!
And yes I did cut my hair (about 30 cm/ 12 inch) I am going to donate it to an organisation that makes wigs for children with cancer. :) I was glad they cut it off! :)

Hugs,
Larissa

This is a "Sue Signature" for me. The first card I received from you (which I still have and cherish) was a Halloween card with Snoopy. Even though I credit you with my love of HM stamps, I always associate the Peanuts line with you as well. I love this card so much. It is a stunner and so well done. Great work! Best, Curt

What an adorable card. So many of my childhood Christmas memories are wrapped up in Charlie Brown. Even to this day, the Soundtrack to Charlie Brown Christmas is my favorite Christmas album! Thanks for such a wonderfully creative card.
