It's Thursday again and so that means we are having another 

This challenge is "Blue Christmas".  I took this opportunity to make a card for my eldest daughter Cassandra.  She went away to go to college and decided she was going to stay in North Carolina after her graduation this past week.  This is so far away as I am in Ohio.  I miss her so very much and so each year she is not with us is a blue Christmas for me.  It also happens to be her birthday on the 23rd.  She was my Christmas present 23 years ago.  I've always said she is my gift from God.  She is adopted and the opportunity to adopt her just sort of fell into my lap.  I brought her home from the hospital on Christmas day.  I could not have asked for a better gift.  

To make this card I used Victorian Holiday Sassy from Sassy Studio Designs.  She is colored with Copic and Whisper Strokes markers.  I also added Stickles to sparkle her up.  The papers are Bazzill and Bearly Mine.  I used a die cut from Stampin' Up and a punch from Martha Stewart.  The pearls are from Queen & Co.  I used ribbon from Offray and Darice.  

Don't forget to go to the SSD blog and see what the other Sassy Girls have created for you.  Hope to see you in the challenge this week.
