Peace Joy and Love

I made these cards recently. I'm still trying to force myself to make a Christmas card or two (or 24, which is where I am at now).

These two are okay even though not really my style. That greeting is a bear to stamp. It doesn't give a good impression but you can't press too hard or else the edges get fussy.  It pains me to say it but Simon Says Stamps stamps just aren't quality. I suppose they are good for the person who buys stamps and only uses them once or twice (or never, just has them in the stash).

Anyway, there you go: Peace, Joy and Love.  What do you want for a Sunday? Football, Beer, and Nachos?  Yeah... me too.

The Fine Print: Peace Joy Love stamp by Simon Says Stamp "Merry Everything" set, papers by Basic Grey, dove punch by Martha, and paper flower from my stash.

So sorry for your stamping probs - but the cards turned out so pretty in spite of the issues! I really like the gold dsp with the red bird!

I like 'em both! Simple and good for mass production, if that's your thing. These days I'd rather make one or two, then move on.

I like the bird of peace on the first card. The stamping looks fine but I have also had stamps which I have been disappointed with so know what you mean. Hugs Mrs A.
