Peace, Hope, & Love

Jingle Belles wants us to incorporate holiday
foliage into our Christmas card.
this could of course be literal holly and/or ivy; but then there's mistletoe, too, and did you know that poinsettias--whether red, white, green or even PINK --are all actually considered leaves and NOT flowers?
Hazel at CHNC wants us to make a square Christmas card.
Crop Stop wants to see lace, it can be real or paper.
Sentimental Sundays  wants the sentiment to be the main focus.


paper: su card stock & little yellow bicycle Christmas magic, ms doily lace boarder punch for my lace, sentiment is a sticker from Flourish Dove set on EAD Designs, swiss dots embossing folder, misc: sewing, gold pearls, pop dots.

I sorta followed the new sketch on Skipping Stones :)
