Peace & Joy

I simply adore this card, if I do say so myself!  LOL!!  I love the sparkly colors, the stark contrast with the white watercolor paper.....I love the fact that I finally found a use for that huge snowflake brad I've been hoarding for a decade (seriously!) I love the sentiment.  Peace.  Joy. 

Ponder it.  I celebrate Christmas like so many of you.  It's a wonderful time of the year.  It's exciting and reflective.  It's full of sweet treats, beautiful music, the laughter of children.  It's full of joy.  We seek peace, at this time of the year, in our homes & communities...

We study the gospels that lead up to the birth of Christ.  We talk about the shepherds, the star and the inn.  The manger, the mom, the dream, the bad guy, the good guy.....

Peace and Joy maybe the focal theme of this season, but I'm telling you today, it is the bounty of relationship with that little baby.  Peace and Joy is a gift from the Master.  I hope you are unwrapping yours today and all year long....

For my card today, I took my lead from the Sensational Stencil CD, from Technique Junkies.  I've used the Grunge Stencil technique.  I love them all, but this CD is my current favorite.  It's such a great resource for getting more bang for my stencil buck!!  I've spent a few bucks on stencils and I just love being able to use them for so many more purposes than the obvious!  This particular stencil is also a favorite that I found over at I Brake For Stamps!

Since it is the season of giving, I have a few coupon codes to share with you today!

There are only a few more days to use the 30 Days coupon code over in the Technique Junkie stamps store!  The code is XMAS15 and you can visit the store:  HERE

You can save at I Brake For Stamps, also, using SAVE10JANE

The sentiment, I'm so in love with today, comes from Technique Junkies Stamps and is called Simple Sentiments (#SS3c).  It's a great set and so versatile and unique!  If you haven't looked around, it is pretty rare to find so many sentiments in that orientation!  And, it's not the only sentiment set like it from Technique Junkie Stamps!  Go check it out!

Thanks for popping by....and remember, Peace.  Joy.
TTFN, Jane
