Happy Thursday everyone!! I hope you are all well!! Today I have two creations to share with you!

The first is a Christmas I created using Peace and Joy available at Our Daily Bread Designs.  It was so fun to create using the new snowflake dies from Our Daily Bread Designs which match this set!!! They will be available in the store on October 1!!  The rich razzleberry snowflake layered behind the stamped snowflakes is using the Create a flake 1 from Spellbinders.

 card recipe:
stamps: Peace and Joy available at Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: SEI Christmas, Rich Razzleberry, white, black
Accessories: black silk ribbon, Martha stewart double lace edge punch, Cuttlebug Snowflake folder, silver baubles.

Fairy Fun- Embossing
Sew Many challenges-Embossing

 Stempeltraeume- bows

The second creation is one of Meljen's new digital images being released today available at Whimsy stamps called Squirrel's Little Acorn.  I colored the image with prima color pencils and gamsol.  The dp is from my leftover stash and I am unsure what paper it is but I do know it is one of the K&Co. collection (maybe Ancestry?)

I added some hemp, velvet scalloped ribbon, string and lace.  The image is framed with my new Lace Circles Spellbinders.
