Peace, Joy, Love...

Hi, Friends!
Just thought I'd pop in quick to share with you one of my Christmas cards I made.  It is super easy peasy!  I started with a white card base and paired it with black and red paper.  The red paper is from American Crafts.  I made a tag from a panel from Lawn Fawn.  Twine from Paper Sweeties(green apple) to finish the card.
In light of all the things happening in our world, we could certainly use more peace, joy, and love!  Two of my friends were overseas recently.  The one was in Paris and due to fly out the evening everything happened.  We thank the dear Lord she made a safe return!  And, my other friend and her husband made it back a couple days ago from Italy!  We take so many things for granted.  So, yes, peace, joy, and love to you, my dear friends!
One more thing...
Visions of SugarplumsLori  Hairston has hosted the Christmas hop for several years now.  There will be three days of fun beginning December 6th with wonderful Christmas creations from several talented designers!  You won't want to miss out seeing all the awesome Christmas inspiration!
Ok, friends, that's all for now!  Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Maria I love this tag-card. Yes you are right; we take things for granted and looking at all that's going on we definitely need more peace. And respect.

  5. Maria, this is so beautiful! The whimsical red background is a gorgeous background for your pretty tag. It's so elegant, happy, and fills the heart with warm fuzzies. Indeed this world needs every ounce of love possible.. I'm so grateful your friends are safe. Lovely work as always, my friend! Thank you for always inspiring. :o)
