What was a thinking??? A PINK Christmas card??? Sometimes I just run with whatever pops into my head. I have had this set for a few weeks and have been dying to use it. Today's color challenge really WAS a challenge since I wanted to use this Christmas set . . . and to top it off, when I was nearly done, my dh came in and said he needed a ride to work 'cause he had a flat tire!! Oh, fine!!! So I'm a little later than I wanted to be posting it, but here it is!
And for some reason this set looks more Hawaiian to me than it does Scandinavian . . . too bad we don't have a sentiment for SU that says "Mele Kalikimaka!"
Thanks for lookin'!!

Great job with this new set. I have it, but haven't done anything with it yet. You've inspired me! I think this design is supposed to represent Scandinavian rosemaling (tolepainting) - but I can see why you get a Hawaiian feeling from it too.
