Peace & Love

Wishing you peace and love this holiday season
 and all year through!

Hi Again!

I'm sending out warm wishes and praying for peace and love to you all this holiday season!  It can be very hectic at this time of the year.  So, I hope you can take time to enjoy your blessings and be surrounded with family and friends during this joyful season!

I'm entering this card for the Simon Says Stamp ChallengeI'm not sure if it'll be for a Christmas card or a birthday card.  I stamped the background and distressed it with tea dye ink.  Pearls were added along with a couple of flowers and leaves.  I couldn't resist the lovely angel in a frame for the focal point. 

Well, I haven't gotten the Christmas tree up yet, but do have a few decorations here and there.  Time to get back to decorating.  Thanks for dropping by today!  Take care, hugs!
