Wishing You Peace on Earth


I finally got to put my Swiss Pixie Nora onto a card. She's been colored for over a month, but with all the preparations for Christmas, she had to sit patiently and wait to be finished. So, here is this sweet little girl, offering wishes for Peace on Earth. I cut her and the background label from my Nesties Labels Four. I used Basic Grey's "Eskimo Kisses" for the DP. The design in the background label makes me think of a tweed which reminds me of a winter coat or scarf, and the background paper looks like it could be a winter snowstorm. The suede ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's ribbon store, the buckle from Flourishes, and the sentiment is computer-generated and punched with SU's Modern Label Punch. I find that I'm using that a lot. I've had much on my plate as I'm sure all of you do. If you did stop by, thank you so much. I hate that I haven't been able to comment on everyone's work, but "tis the season...." I'll try to catch up soon. Don't forget that tomorrow is our next Copic Creations challenge, and the DT's cards are looking so, so cute! Be sure to check it out, and if you can squeeze it in, be sure to play along. You'll love our sponsor. Have a wonderful Monday.
