Peace and Joy

Hello! Well, it’s happening again!  The Festive Friday challenge is up and running again this year with the talented Design Team addition of my dear friend, Lynn!  This challenge really helped me get my Christmas card stash in order last year so expect some Christmas cheer here every two weeks :)  This year we’re just asked to be inspired!  How lovely is that?!  Here’s the first photo…

I was inspired by the neutral background with the gorgeous pop of red in the middle.  Thanks for stopping by!  I’m off to write 2 short papers today.  I hope you have a fabulous day :)

Absolutely beautiful. I love that your poinsettia leaves are a soft red...does that make sense?! And the touch of chevron paper...oh la la!

Love that poinsettia and the kraft leaves. Touch of chevron paper with the sentiment is fabulous too. Great card. Happy Sunday :) can't wait to watch the Seahawks game today. Hope they win!!
