Peace


Anyone else having a little spastic moment realizing that Christmas is just two weeks away?  Let's just say Santa needs to get busy at our house.  Holy moly time is flying right now.  But...there's always time to make a card.  This card is for the current MUSE challenge.  This translated straight from my head to the card.  I love when an idea actually translates to the card because 9 times out of 10 it doesn't!  My MUSE inspiration was the negative die and the image over the sentiment.

So short, sweet and happy Thursday my friends!  Meeting my mum after work tonight so we can be Santa's helpers!

Very pretty card, Lynn! I can't believe Christmas is coming so soon too! ACK!! Remember when we were younger and it seemed like forever to get here. :)

warm up the sleigh! Shopping at night is fun (hopefully)! The stores could be empty which is a bonus! I hope it is "peace"ful like this beautiful card :) This helper needs to get a few more things too! ox

Feeling the same way here, Lynn - not much Christmas shopping has been done because of our frigid, dangerously cold temps lately! Yikes!

LOVE your card! So awesome with the diagonal striped background!

Hope you 2 were able to accomplish a ton last night! The other morning I woke up way earlier than normal so I did a ton of online christmas shopping:)
