~* peace on earth... *~


Hi Everyone!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far! What a fabulous sketch from Sketchy Thursdays to play with this week for jingle belles #8 card. Here's my card. I used DP from Making Memories. It was perfect because it had the little scene in a the half circle! I added some Prima fuzzy lace and then some red pom poms on top. There is some gold Stickles at the top of the Prima fuzzy lace and around the half circle framing the beautiful little wintery scene. I added some Prima poinsettia and leaves. I had a ton of fun playing!

I got happy mail yesterday from the most talented and sweet Amy Tsuruta! Thank you so much Amy for the sweet birthday wishes :)! I really appreciate it and love the card you sent. It is sew lovely :)!


Sorry I'm a little behind on my daily blog visits...I hope to catch up this weekend :)!

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely rest of your weekend!!!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
Steph :)

Such a lovely holiday card Steph, I wish I could find some "energy" to make my #7 card, I have been following since week 1, and really do not want to miss, but I am having a tough time for weeks, barely want to get up and craft!
Happy belated b'day Steph, and happy weekends!

What a pretty, pretty card, Steph! And wow, do I ever love that sketch. You rocked it for sure. That little scene in the patterned paper was just perfect for this. Love the poinsettia and love the layered trim, too. How could those pom poms not just make you smile?
