I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Holiday Birthday & Snow Peace


Holiday Birthday - 2S4Y 41

Today's first post is a birthday card for my dad whose birthday is December 23rd.  I like to try and give him regular birthday cards since his special day is around the holidays.  This time I did incorporate the Christmas colors into his card as well as his love of lighthouses.  This card was done for the 2 Sketches 4 You bonus challenge.  Don't know why but I skipped right over their first sketch of the challenge and went right for the bonus!

Stamps:  Lighthouse stamp and Birthday sentiment.
Paper:  Cream and red cardstock; DP green plaid and pine textured paper.
Ink:  Versamark with Rich Red emboss powder for sentiment.  Basic black for lighthouse stamp.
Embellishments:  Cuttlebug mosaic emboss folder; scallop punch; Sizzix swirl die cut; Sizzix photo corners; Le Plume markers on stamp; green brad and red plaid ribbon.

Snow Peace -- PPA21

In thinking about all the people snowed in today all over the country, my second card is a holiday winter theme.  It is all my own creation, sketch and all but I did it in mind for the PPA21 challenge of a winter wonderland.  In the back of my mind was this snowman face and after sketching it out, it's finally done.  He was very fun to create.

Stamps:  Peace sentiment.
Paper:  White and canary cardstock; star and blue stripe DP from stash.
Ink:  VersaMagic Cloud White and white emboss powder.
Embellishments:  Royal gel pen for trim around hat; White flocking powder; Sizzix star dies; buttons, thread and clear gem.

Happy Winter Wonders!
