Peace , Love and Joy

Ok ...I know this has nothing to do with Christmas . Well ,  may be it does cause,  I  am sharing Joy and I do love my Daughter and her creations . 
How's this ?
Michelle from

created this dump truck from scratch with card stock. Unusual gift box wouldn't you agree?

Any way to my Christmas cards .
Still creating quick , clean and simple cards , leaving more elaborate ones for later when new papers and embellishements come out in September.
This one is made from card base of Old Olive , with Whisper White , Old Olive and Real Red for panel. Tree, inked  in Old Olive is from set 'Season Of Joy', while greeting is from set' Many Merry Messages' . DSP  on left is from 'I Wish ' scrapbooking Kit .
I punched small stars with SU punch from Whisper White scraps and adhered to glitter paper , repunched and 3D to greeting panel .

Still using DSP from the 'I Wish'  Kit This DL sized card is from Chocolate Chip card stock .
I used Eyelet Border Punch , SU,  to begin panel , adding Real Red , Old Olive and Whisper White . Church scene is from set  'A Wish For Peace ' and the greeting from  'Many Merry Messages' . all inked in Not Quite Navy.

I coloured in the window with SU marker and dabbed the sky in SU stampin' pastels with a tissue .
Then just along tree edge and around window I again used a tissue with a dab of yellow stampin pastel to create a glow . Now I am going to upload a close up shot   and hope  the 'glow'  shows up .

Mm .. I think I need advise here and more practice . Still I think that you will get the idea . The card was scanned but  for the close up I used my web cam .  These cards will be added to my number made for Robyn's challenge for 50 Christmas Cards for the 1st December .  My count will now be 13 .  Slow going actually . Can't  wait for Stampin'Up 's new products in September . May be there will be some exciting new DSP and stamps that will inspire me to be more creative with the last few Chrismas cards . 
Well,  thank you for looking in and I hope that you liked these . I appreciate your comments and love to visit you too.
So enjoy the rest of the week , stay safe and be happy .
Cheers  Shirley-Anne
