Taj Mahal

DH strikes again.  I showed him today's card and he told me it looked like the Taj Mahal.  Sometimes he can be so supportive and sometimes I can only stare at him gasping wordlessly at him like a fish out of water.  "Thanks dear."

Today's challenge on MFP's Simple Salutations is to use non-traditional Christmas colours.  I chose kraft, beige and purple to use up some bits and pieces.  The pine bough came from my "Joyous Season" set.   I used a sentiment from MFP's "Tis the Season" set.  I love this sentiment because I can send it to my relatives on DH's side who live overseas.  For years they would giggle at me for wishing them a "Merry Christmas", especially my younger nieces and nephews.  It wasn't until they were well into their teens that DH admitted I'd been wishing them a tipsy Christmas.  Then of course they all roared with laughter at my mortification.

Anyways, here's hoping all your Christmas cards are made, maybe even sent and that you all have a Happy Christmas!
