peace and serenity


I've been challenging myself to design Christmas cards using non-holiday oriented paper....whaddya think?


A combo of Jenni Bowlin {paper} and Melissa Frances {flashcard}.

I used Maraschino ala The Twinery for a pop of color.


I was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketch


I haven't played along with those gals in awhile...trying to get back into the sketch challenges!

Remember that the current Paper Issues challenge is

Holiday Happy

Thanks for stopping by and can I get a big Woot Woot for a short work week?
