Here is another Christmas card for the stash inspired by the current challenge at Jingle Belles which is to use the word peace or create a card that represents peace to you. To me, there is little more peaceful or beautiful that a fresh snowfall, especially when it is the sort of snow that sticks to everything including the trees.
I would also like to share at Christmas Card Challenges where the current challenge is Anything goes.
So here is my card. Though it is difficult for me, I am trying to keep as many cards as possible this year flat or flatter for mailing. Which translates to cutting back on embellishments. I think though that too much embellishment would compete with the focal image on this one. What do you think?
Let is snow - ironic really, since it is currently 28 degrees here and feeling like 30! Amazing how much the weather can change in just one week! From winter to summer all at once - I think we skipped spring altogether! My first daffodil appeared just today and the lilacs aren't even close to blooming. My Pasque flower, one of the first to bloom in my garden is only just shooting up now. This is the slowest spring I can remember in my adult life. One week ago today, I wore a hoodie and a vest to soccer, tonight I am wearing shorts and worried about burning in the sun, lol! (2 weeks ago, I was wearing my winter jacket and mittens and sat watching with a blanket wrapped around me!)
Thanks for visiting!
