Peace On Earth

Good morning dear blog friends, we had a very foggy start to the day yesterday and it didn't clear until about lunchtime so let's hope it's better today!

Today my card uses Peace On Earth from Lily Of The Valley, such a sweet little image.

The papers are Contemporary Christmas from Papermania which I have had in my stash for many years. I'm trying to keep  my promise to myself to use up as much of my old stock as I can rather than just buying new because I like it.  I'm trying to be good. LOL! There are some  really pretty papers in this pack so I will definitely be using them again. I used the flourishes from Jewel Flowers and Flourishes simply because they were still on my desk from yesterday. The poinsettias were some I won from Hazel Conboy but  I didn't like the yellow centres, so I removed them and replaced them with  some little suns I punched  out of the backing paper and used some pink glitter on them. I dusted the angel's wings and halo with white glitter and added some Papermania Shimmer Dots.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and managing to craft.

Love from Christine xx

Enjoy your day. Hazel

  12. Lovely card Christine, the image is gorgeous and I love your lilac colour choice. Joey xx

  13. Afternoon Christine. I love the title to this sweet stamp. The stamp itself is just adorable and you've coloured it very well. Great card and lovely colours. Hugs xxx

  14. Evening Christine, this is lovely, gorgeous stamp and you have coloured it beautifully (love LOTV), it's really nice to see different colours for Christmas. Sorry I've not 'visited' for a few days, I have so much crafty stuff - event, workshop and craft fair this coming week that I have been so busy prepping! Hugs Carole Z X

  15. Hi Christine, you are so right about using up what papers we have perhaps I should think of making my new years resolution now but will I keep it LOL! Another fabulous creation your image is so cute and the colours are as always my cup of tea. Hope you have had a lovely Sunday. Love & hugs Christine H xx

  16. I have been doing exactly the same as you recently and every card I make now has to have been made with old stock. I have some stunning papers that haven't been touched and if I buy anymore the same will probably happen to that, so use it up time.
    Love this card, so delicate and feminine. Lovely colours and layout.
    Hugs Linda xx

  17. Hi Christine - I'm back after my week off and have just checked out your cards for last week! You have made some beauties, I must say - even the 'quick' card is super and doesn't look quick at all. I had to laugh at your comment about 'dis-ahster' 'cos I am just watching a recording of Strictly as I blog. I always record them so I can whizz through the boring bits! Hope you are well and the mountaineer is now back.

    Big hugs to you Sue Pxxx
