Unconventional Christmas

I gotta start off by saying that I officially HATE Mondays. My boys seem to plot out the day and make it the most miserable for me. I little note. I was in the house, yes I should have been out with them, and my boys were supposed to be riding their bikes in the driveway. I hadn't see them but new they were in the garage. How much trouble could they get into in the garage, right?

Let me tell you. Remember the other post where I mentioned I had my boys make a welcome home sign for their dad? Yeah, my oldest son decided it would be neat to make a sign for mommy and got all the paint and paintbrushes out. That is very sweet right? It is but I was upset about having to clean up a HUGE mess. Thankfully they were in the garage and not my house. There was paint everywhere. My oldest son actually trying to paint me a picture but my youngest son just had a puddle of paint on the paper.

Well that is my story for the day, let's get onto the card.

I had my silent night set on my desk still so I had to play with it again. I love this idea of using unconventional colors for Christmas. It opens up so many possibilities.

I started with some SU! kraft and PTI vintage cream cardstock. The PP is from my DCWV Nana's nursery for boys, the green is from a paper pack I got from QVC and the ribbon is from Michael's. I only used the new PTI old olive and ocean tides ink.

That is about all there is to it. I hope you like it.

That is a very pretty card! Sometimes we have to look past the mess and into the heart of the boy don't we?

This sounds pretty much like two of my girls did for me except they painted themselves. :)
