GSGC11 A Wish for Peace


Happy TGIF!!!

I had a fun day today - I went shopping by myself!!!
Have not done this in a while....it was so nice not to drag any of my girls along!!!

Of course I didn't get home until late afternoon and boy I had to take a quick nap....the heat was killing me!!!

OOOPPPPSSS!!! As I'm writing this.....I just realized that I have *not* created a *Snowman* card....for the LSC181!!! I have created a *Christmas* card....oh well - I guess I was too eager to make a card - any card - LOL!!!

At least the card is still good for the *Great Swaps Girls* Challenge - Jessica Rone has challenged us to use at least three Embellishments.....!!!

I have used last years *Dashing* DP from SU. The image is from the *NEW* Stamp Set called *A Wish for Peace*. It was colored with Close to Cocoa and Old Olive Markers. Next I have *bedazzled* the image with Dazzling Diamond Glitter and layered it onto Riding Hood Red CS. This panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

The Embellishments that I have chosen are - Moss Ribbon (Michaels), Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets and red Rhinestones.

Here is more great news!!! My friend Jessica Knutsen - aka *knutsen24* on SCS or *There she goes* - is in the process of starting her own Stamping Company - swing by her blog and see the fabulous Set's she has designed so far!!! I love them and can't wait to see more!!! Keep watching out she is going life with her Company soon!!!

Have a wonderful evening and I'll see ya tomorrow!!!

This is one of the Christmas sets I ordered from the NEW long-awaited catalog! I picked this because the spires reminded me of the many spires in Prague, where my daughter lives. As soon as it comes, and I make a card with it, I hope you'll check it out on my blog. TFS!
