Beautiful Balsam

Happy Friday!!!

I was asked by "d" to make a couple cards for him...one for his Grandmother and another one for his Aunt. I have to be honest and say that I originally made my
Merry Figgy card for him but decided that perhaps it was a bit too busy for his G-Ma and/or his Aunt :) What do you think about his one? I'm still having a ball with my Basic Grey Figgy Puddy...Love the Balsam paper, it's sooo elegant and rich looking. I orginally had the panel against the Stampin' Up Very Vanilla...I didn't like it so I added a smidge of Chocolate Chip. I've had the gorgeous Olive wired satin ribbon for years...bought it at a holiday show and recently started to really use it...

This weekend we are suppose to get some snow in the Pacific Northwest...hmmm....I have a jam packed weekend. I'm all for snow but not if I have to drive in the stuff.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!
