Let there be peace on Earth

Sunday, November 29, 2009

While I was making this card, I found myself singing along to this song. I remember being in grade school singing this song for a Christmas concert.  I need just a few more Christmas cards so that will be what is coming over the next week or so. 

I started with the sketch from OCC.  My card is also for Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge.  I've definitely missed playing the last month. This week's challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges is punch happy.  Papertake Weekly and Whimsy Stamps both issued a Christmas theme challenge.  Bizzy Becks Creatalicious Challenge wants to see something Christmas related but with sparkle and snowflakes.  My paper took care of that for me.  KL Stampin N Scrappin's challenge for November is to use snowflakes.  Lastly, Crafty Calendar's challenge this month is to use something weather related. 
***Supplies***
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye
Stamps: CTMH Christmas Melodies
Other: MS border punch

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great Sunday.  I'm teaching a children's class in church today and then we will be feeding the missionaries for dinner.  I hope you have a great day.  Blessings to each and every one of you.

Alanna this is gorgeous! Not as bright as your other cards but still gorgeous! Usually I recognize people's work without looking at the name in google reader but I saw this and didn't realize it was yours!

Beautiful!!

I have that song on a CD sung by Vince Gill and it's a beautiful rendition. I need to find that CD and pull it out.

Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!
