Favourite Colour Combo at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning, this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' is to use your favourite colour combo. 
I decided to make a Christmas card as we were in the throes of the heatwave at the time and I wanted to think about cold things and forget that I was melting! I'd had a really terrible night- didn't sleep until it was getting light and was so cross and grumpy I shut myself away in the craft room so my husband didn't have to put up with me....he gets the blame for loads of stuff (usually because he did it!!!) but I couldn't blame the heat on him.
Anyway this is the card, using my favourite blue/ brown combo. The blues are very soft and look more grey in the photo but I was too hot to care! The cute stamp is from Whimsy, can't remember where the snowflake die comes from but it is pretty!
Thankfully, it's cooled down a lot now- sleep is possible again and Hubby can stop tiptoeing around me!
Take a peek here to see what the rest of the Sweeties have been up to this week
Thanks for visiting
Have a lovely weekend

Chris, your darling little girl in that beautifully frosty scene is sweet as can be! Your creations always include such joy and whimsy. Thanks for sharing them I’ve been reorganizing my dies... a slow process for me lol... and enjoying some cardmaking just for fun these days. This week I’ve regained a bit of energy, so I spend a 5 minute morning segment pruning our rapidly growing shrubbery. Jack has our new green house completed, and he is now building the shelves on the inside. Been reading quite a bit, and resting a lot. Still struggling with resting because it feels like I’m wasting time, but Jack reminds me it’s not wasting time if my body needs it. hugs, de

Love your story about the heat, made me smile. I love a bit of sunshine and warmth but by the end of it I was praying for rain, or for someone to kill me!!!

Love your gorgeous design. I particularly like the colour scheme, unusual for a Christmas card but somehow just perfect.

By the way, your gorgeous die is an Amy Design die. I know cos I just used it myself a couple of weeks back!

Thank you for sharing in our Gems Or Pearls challenge.
