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!

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

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.

Lynn your card is beautiful, the stripes are such a perfect background and the pineboughs and pine cones a lovely accent. You are so right about time flying this year. I need to get back into my Christmas cards again!

I absolutely love this design Lynn, gonna have to pin it right away!!! Love the gold stripes in a block... so sumptuous but modern. Well done on getting ahead for Christmas, my resolution to do the same has failed again this year :0(
