Let It Snow...


 "Gather your loved ones
and let the winds blow,
This is the season;

let it snow, let it snow."





These circles are 2.5" and would work
well as gift tags or labels, or used to spruce up
a regular mouth canning jar.  Simply place one
on the flat lid, 
then screw the ring band on
to keep it in place.



Here are the free graphic
& font sources I used:



*Old Design Shop*
Aged paper texture

*Dafont.com*
Faux Snow


The opening quote from Janet's poem
is so fitting 
for us, as we'll be gathering
with our loved ones on this very chilly,
snowy Thanksgiving day...



Thank you for stopping by,
and Happy Thanksgiving!

Angels Among Us


Oh I believe there are angels among us.
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come down to us in our darkest hours.
They show us how to live, to teach us how to give.
To guide us with the light of love.


~ Don Goodman & Becky Hobbs ~



Snow angel ~ 5 x 8" graphic, and
printable sheet of tags ~ 3 sizes.
Enjoy!

Do not neglect hospitality,
for through it some have unknowingly
entertained angels.


~ Hebrews 13:2 ~

font sources

I Heard a Bird Sing

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember...




'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.

~ Oliver Herford ~

Aren't these little robins sweet?
The first image is a FB cover photo.
The second is an 8 x 10" December 2013
calendar.  The last image is 8 x 10"
paper for scrapbooking, etc.



Here are the free graphics &
sources
used in my artwork:


*TuckDB*
Robins & holly postcard
 
*Shadowhouse Creations*
Softly aged sepia texture

*I used the font Parchment for "December" and
Old English Text MT for the calendar numbers.*



Thank you for stopping by!

Swirling Border & Lined Paper

I was inspired by the intricate style
of a round Victorian frame to create a swirling 
design of my own.  The swirl
turned into a 
border for lined paper... as you
can see, it looks great in several colors!
I used the aged background from an image
on the Old Design Shop to create
the paper texture.








Hope you find these papers
beautiful & useful!

Thanks for stopping by!
