25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties!


I'm back again
It's a FUN & INSPIRATIONAL 25 Days with a NEW Project shared Daily!! 
You can find the Schedule Below!! 
Here are my projects for today!!

For my card, I started with a blue card base and stamped with the background with snowflakes from the set Deck the Halls.  The bird and sentiments are from the same set.  The darling reindeer and holly are from the set Jingle all the Way.   I die cut the window by using Sweet Cuts-Rectangle Scallop Frames.  The trees are from the set Merry Christmas Y'll.  The string of lights are from the set Basket Add-on:  Baked with Love.  The background behind the deer was made with DO salty ocean, wilted violet, and cracked pistachio.  White acrylic paint was splattered to the background.  

Next up...

Two simple Christmas cards with Echo park paper.  I just thought the paper was so pretty.  And, since I have tons of design paper, I decided to cut into it!  Yes, don't fall off your chair....two simples cards from me, lol!  Anyways, I wanted the paper to shine and added die cut labels from the set With Heartfelt Thoughts.  The sentiment is from the same set. The bow is from the set Sweet Cuts-Stitched Tags #2- mitten/tree.  Strawberry sequins and Green Apple sequins from Paper Sweeties, also.  I grew up in a large family of seven children.  We can remember my Dad saying at times...."I just want some peace".  So, my sisters and I laugh about it at times.  My Dad is no longer with us, but I'm sure he's up in heaven having his peace.  He was the kindest loving person, so sweet!  The world certainly could use more peace at this time.  I pray for more peaceful times and for all to have a blessed peaceful Christmas!

Listed below are the 25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties!  Lots of wonderful inspiration!!
