Keeping Christmas

 Hello! It's the 25th of the month and that means it's time for the Keeping Christmas Blog Hop. We're  trying to make cards each month so when Christmas comes around we won't have a mad rush to make so many cards at once. I LOVE making Christmas cards all year round.

I made three cards each one a little different, I used chunky glitter, the red ink is from Concord & 9th new ink:Cranberry Ink Pad 

I love the way this rubber background  

 For Christmas, I  couldn't wait to see the watering  can in red, I am sure black would  be beautiful too!

The fires are bad here in California , most of them are to the north of us. Our SIL has been fighting them for over a week now. It's also been crazy hot . Don't know how they can work in this heat.

Praying for all of those affected by the fires.

Thanks for the visit today!

  14. Many people like you to exercise at 6-7 in the morning, but did you know? Because of the high concentration of pollutants in the environment at night when the temperature drops, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air is also high, so it is not suitable to go out for exercise. NIKSA workout clothes explores a healthier lifestyle with you.
