I was feeling a bit frustrated yesterday so I made a card to sooth my jangled nerves. As many of you know six months ago our church was burned in an arson fire. We are just now reaching a point where you can visualize what our once gutted church is going to look like. Yesterday someone came by and somehow got behind a security fence. They proceeded to steal a stack of bricks we had removed from the church and had plans for using elsewhere. I am just heartsick that someone did this. I and several others have worked on a "Restoration Committee" to try and put our church back together. It was disheartening to think someone would stoop so low and steal from the church. This was a perfect way to unwind and forget for a moment. I know that this problem is a small one on the big scale of things.So a few hours in the craft room helped.
I am slowly working on my Christmas cards. I was just dying to color this cute little image. I added sparkles for the snow, fun flock for the fur on the jackets and hats. I added liquid pearls on the falling snow. I cut the image and the circle frame with a CM cutter and then distressed the edges. I added some ribbon snowflakes and a bit of Spica pen. So there is lots of sparkles on this cute image. Little rhinestone hearts finished off this fun card and it is one more to add to my stash and remind me to worry about what is in my heart and not the hearts of others.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: All I Want For Christmas Is You
I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you, yeah.
