Joy and Peace



Good Saturday morning everyone!!! I want to send lots of hugs to my friends in the northeast who are buried in snow this weekend...hope the snow stops soon and your electricity stays on!!! We are supposed to get a little rain later today. Wouldn't ya know my DH was trying to get some land at the farm ready for grass seed before the rain but the tractor decided to go on the blink.  He got it fixed but won't be able to spread the grass seed till next week. Hopefully we will have more rain so our horses will have some green goodies in a few months!!! Anyway....

I did a little stamping yesterday and combined three Splitcoast challenges with this card. First is the new Mix-Ability Challenge  to use Resist. You know I love techniques so this was right up my alley!! A Unity music background stamp was stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear ep. The background was then sponged with Bashful Blue and a touch of Chocolate Chip. The dove image from Layers of Color's Christmas Blessings set was stamped with Chocolate Chip and sponged with Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip. Pearls, twine, a button, lace, seam binding, and canvas fabric finish it off. I used Queen Susan's beautiful Partridge in a Pear Tree card as inspiration ...congrats, Susan for being chosen Queen for the Day!!! I used the same Christmas bird theme and used a music score background but used different stamps, added the blue, and added the ribbon, lace, twine, and pearls. I also used the blue and brown color combo for the Free 4 All challenge!

Thanks for stopping by this morning....I hope you have a fun filled weekend!!!
