It's time for the next Color Throwdown challenge- #270!!

Happy Wednesday my friends!! Tomorrow is Turkey day in the US and I am in the throes of making all the traditional foods and everyone's favorites!! My oldest, Lauren, is contributing too... we will have scrumptious food {and no cooking} for 4 days... WHOO HOO!!

Enough of my celebrating 2 days of furious cooking and 3 days of stamping and eating :-)

To business...

Wanda picked the colors this week... LOVE the inspiration pic { I have a bunch of old ornaments I have collected that get displayed in a large glass jar... gorgeous}!! I was a "titch" intimidated by the colors.... ohh, turns out I was wrong!! Well, it's certainly not the first time! These colors are fun!!

And...  I got a little bling on... makes me happy!! I used WPlus(s Silver Bells and matching dies. Created my own background, added some silver embossed berries, silver twine, and a sentiment from the same set on an MFT Flag Stax die!!
For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented November guestie - Cindy Lawrence at  One Happy Stamper!! Thanks Cindy for joining us this month!!
