Pinque Peacock - Christmas Card with gift box

Happy Thursday...
Today is my day to post for Pinque Peacock..
I made some Christmas cards with a matching gift box.
I used non-traditional colours because I love these colours.
I asked Jessica to make me a elegant floral fan and pearl pin to match these colours.
Aren't they beautiful!!! 

and a close up of the front of the box.
I am not sure why the colour seems not so bright.. but the pics above are
the real colour.

I used CTMH paper.. embossed with 
three  different embossing folders..
then I distressed everything...
added ribbons and pearls..
and here they are!!!

Take A Hike Day-

this may be your lucky day! November 17 is (National) Take a Hike Day!

Absurdity Day

I’m an orange! Don’t peel me!

Orange Man
This orange doesn’t have to explain himself. November 20 is National Absurdity Day, 
the one day a year you have an excuse to let loose your inner weirdo,
make absolutely no sense, and act completely and ridiculously absurd. 
Perhaps the unknown creator of this strange day was stressed out, 
bored with day-to-day life, 
or had just worn out his or her brain trying to make sense of everything all the time. 

Universal Children`s Day

The Blog Candy being offered this month is a machine-embroidered angel
 which can be used as a bookmark or an early start to decorate your Christmas Tree!!!! 
Winner gets to chose the color of her angel from pink, white, ivory, or gold.

Now you are off to see Lucy...... hope you had a great time!!!!
Don't forget to stop back next month on December 14th 
for the last Calendar Girls Day of the Year . . . .
