Wishing you Peace, Love, & Joy

Hello!  I hope all is well with you.  It has been a busy, crazy week here.  I live just outside Kenosha, WI and things have been a little crazy.  It is so sad to see what has happened in my hometown.  To finish off the week, I moved my baby girl to college.  I know she has a good head on her shoulders but I am still worried about her and all the usual college issues kids run into and then add COVID into the mix.  With all that going on, I needed some serious crafting therapy.

I decided to use one of the Lili of the Valley digital images I bought during a sale a couple of months ago. I used this sweet image, Snowy Robins, and paired it with non-traditional Christmas colors to make 2 new cards for my stash.  

I used pretty much the same image, stamps, and papers to make 2 different cards.

 Thank you for stopping by!   I hope you have a great day.

Stamp:  Papertrey sentiment stamp

Paper:  Simple Stories 6x8 Winter Farmhouse paper pad, Georgia Pacific, Vellum, Papertrey kraft paper, misc black & green card stock
