Christmas card#6 Peace

Compliments of Pinterest!.....................................................................................................................

I am linking this page to:

Sounds like my kind of advice. I like it! Laugh as much as you can- laughter just makes you feel good...if you are with someone who NEVER appolgizes (even if that someone is you)- there is something wrong there-try to work on it... and sometimes it's definitely hard to let go,, but sometimes that's all you can do...

Now my card...
I really like how this one turned out. More non-traditional colors.
I found these snowflake ornaments last year and thought they would be flat enough
to use on cards. I didn't trust any adhesive, so I sewed them on (too much glitter).
This paper is great, too. I LOVE DCWV (the Natural foil stack)! (so hard to make just one!)

A closer look....

Closing thoughts....

These statements are really something to think about. We complain so much, but we forget how truly blessed we are.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit. Until next time.


  1. Oh Rae, you always warm up the cockles of my heart... how sweet are these quotes that you share with us...

    And your cards are out of this world. So rich and divine.

  14. Rachel, just the fact that you sewed these snowflakes on...cudos to you girl!!! Love the non-traditional color combo and great idea layout for using larger embellishments! Nice work as usual. I actually have some snowflakes like these, I think in a different color, and some other rather large embellishments for the holidays I'd like to use on my cards for next year. Thanks for sharing.
