Peace



I'll hopefully be showing a few simple quickmakes over the coming weeks.

The first is a card made from one of my all time favourite stamps from Innovative Stamp Creations. The main image on the card isn't sold as a Christmassy stamp, but I always use it as one. The woman is from the Women Around the World plate. The word 'Peace' is from the Holidays plate. The 'Poinsettia' is from the Christmas Trinkets plate. All ISC. All gorgeous images to work with.

Please click on the image for a much clearer version.

ISC are available direct from the States or from Scrapz here in the UK.

I hope you are all well and up to speed with the season :0)
