peace on earth

this is post 1 of 2 for me...please click here for my Fresh Squeezed Stamps post.


I'm going to try to have a pile of Christmas cards by the end of November....


This is the first one for this year....

The rub on is from the retired EAD Designs...


The gingham is Simple Stories and the wood veneer is Studio Calico.

I was inspired by 

Jingle Belles 


I love that inspiration pic...

I was also inspired by the current



I'll be back in a smidge with a Fresh Squeezed Stamps card:)
