One more week till CHRISTMAS!!! WooWhooo!!! Excitement is beginning to mount in our house.....the big count down begins! We have a joke around here about Christmas Eve......like today is Christmas Eve's Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve. It's ridiculous but we have fun with it!
Along with all our fun.....we also remember the true meaning of Christmas.....which is the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, fun and food, we have to work at keeping Christ, and the perfect gift that HE is, as our focus. Not always easy, but totally worth the effort!!!
Well, last night I finished my PEACE accordion "decoration". I made it very CAS (Clean And Simple) and am pleased with how it turned out. I tried to jazz it up more, but never liked what I came up with. Anyway.....I used last year's In Color Kiwi Kiss cardstock (yes, I'm STILL mourning the loss of that one!) and some non SU vanilla cardstock, along with some retired scraps of DSP for the strips and the 1/2" circles inside the snowflakes.
The snowflakes were punched using the current jumbo snowflake punch which I layered on top of the now retired smaller snowflake punch. I topped both with a 1/2" circle. The letters were die cut using the Big Shot and the Serif Essentials Alphabet dies.....which I borrowed from my sweet friend Karen.....THANKS Karen!!! If you're interested in how I made this...just contact me.
Gotta go....until next time, find some time for some stamping FUN!!!
Christmas Blessings to You.......Cindy
