Peace, Joy, Love

Hi there!

The holidays always get so busy - wish I could slow down and enjoy them more! *sigh* Whenever I feel a bit crazed this time of year, I try to find some time to create. It has a wonderful, calming effect, and I know you know what I mean.

So, I just HAD TO order the adorable Lawn Fawn set called, Peace, Joy, Love. The images and sentiments in this set are so darn cute! I created two different cards with it so far. On this first one, I also used the Curved Edge Die from Simon Says Stamp.

And here's my second card.

Aren't those love birds just the cutest?! I'll be saving this one to give to my hubby for Valentine's Day. The snow was created using the Falling Snow Stencil from Simon Says Stamp and some Color Box Frost White Ink.

I've got tomorrow off work and I'm hoping to get my shopping finished, and gifts wrapped. After that, I have to work the next six out of seven days before Christmas. I don't mind though - it's such a fun time at the store - people just seem to be happier this time of year! I hope I can find time in the next couple of days to take some photos to share with you. The gal who decorates the store does an amazing job and it looks so festive!

I hope you're having a good week and are all caught up on your shopping and card making! I'm not sending out as many cards as I usually do. I feel bad about it but it just was not possible this year. Could you please remind me I need to start making them in August next year?! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by! ♥
