Hard to Find Some Peace

Hello.  Welcome.  Just a quick post.  Feeling a bit ragged today after my big pumpkin celebration last night.  For me no alcohol involved, but some of us partied til the clocks changed, so a long day and a late night.  A very good party with lots of pumpkins and cake!  Hope to have a few photo's to show soon. 

I seem to be alternating between Halloween and Christmas.  This one is xmas themed.

Using the lovely LOTV penguin and presents image from the Winter Wonderland art pad.  I finally managed to get the die cut/fussy cut combination right.  Usually someone loses something vital but he's still got his scarf and tree.  Phew!  The base is a kraft card I have stamped with a Crafty Individuals corner stamp.  I've layered with a sheet from Tilda Wintergarden papers then a frame from handmade paper and the image.  The flowers are from Storyteller.  I wanted a peace and joy sentiment but couldn't find a stamp or anything that mentioned peace.  Plenty happy, merry, joy and bright but no peace.  Finally founf this on a freebie sheet from a magazine and layered it onto some kraft.  The red ink is DI Barn Door.
