Festive Friday: Peace & Joy


 Happy Friday my friends. It's time for another challenge at Festive Friday!  We're one quarter of the way through the new year (how the heck did that happen?!).  How are your Christmas cards progressing?  I have about 20 done and send out about 150 so I have a ways to go but am happy to be moving along thanks to the Festive Friday inspiration.  I love the gorgeous inspiration photo above. There are so many elements that could inspire you.  I picked up the stripes from the siding and the pine cones as my two primary elements on my card.
I'd love for you to pop on over to Festive Friday and share your inspiration with us!  I love perusing through the gallery to see what you've created!

  4. oh, those stripes are perfect! I love the way the sentiment is stamped on one :) 150 cards! Wow! I think the most I've ever sent is 50 and then a bit less over the past few years. Hope work is fun at the new place :) ox

  5. Love this card--the stripes, colors, everything. I had to do a double take when you said we are 1/4 way through the year, though. Not in California, I thought to myself. Yet, alas, even in paradise, it is 1/4 of the year through.
