Peace On Earth

Hey.  =)  Last week, I showed off some cards that seemed like spring or summer.  This week, I'm kicking it off with a wintry Christmas card.


The inspiration piece was this neat bubble-like sticker from K & Co.  It's got glitter inside, like a snow globe.  I added a little doily die cut behind it, and chose papers to coordinate.  A strip of snowflakes is also courtesy of K & Co.


A guy at work just missed a whole week due to the flu.  He said he did get his flu shot this year.  Yikes.  I got mine too, and am keeping fingers crossed that this bug does not hit any of my family.  I had heard that the flu vaccine administered this year was not as effective as in years past.   Hope they get that situation worked out.  My co-worker said it was a bad week.  :-(  Keep washing those hands frequently!



Paper: kraft, white - Papertrey Ink; Chocolate Chip, embossed kraft (skinny strip) - Stampin' Up!; wine and green patterns - Holiday Traditions - Me and My Big Ideas; cereal box chipboard Accessories & Tools: small star punch - SU; medium star punch - Fiskars; Crystal glitter - Martha Stewart; Decorative Doily Duo die - My Favorite Things; Sparkling Clear sequins - Pretty Pink Posh

Lovely papers and focal image. Flu shots don't work too well - only 9% effective. I have never had one and have never had the flu. Load up on the Vitamin D, Vitamin C and Omega 3s, drink tons of water and make sure you get sleep and exercise and it will go a long way to keeping you healthy. Washing hands is key too :)

What a fabulous sticker and I love the chunky glitter on the one star! Beautiful! There has been lots of flu going around here. I haven't had it in years, luckily, and hope it spares our family again this year. There are so many different strains it's impossible to include them all in a flu shot. It's a cocktail that's just the best guess as to what might be prevalent in a given year. This year the experts were surprised. Take care, Colleen!
