I used this CAS Colours & Sketches’ sketch #240 for inspiration:

Here’s a photo of one of my family’s snow-covered Christmas Trees & also one of my favorite Christmas songs. I hope that you enjoy them.

 

Thanks for stopping by.

Grace, Peace and Merry Christmas,

Melissa

Wishing You Joy

Slide3

I’m very happy to here with you to share a “just for fun” Clean and Simple Christmas card.

      This card was inspired by a bunch of great challenges that are currently going on. (see below)I used some much loved Papertrey Ink products. I would like to take this opportunity to wish Nicole Heady much joy as she moves on from Papertrey Ink.

The card was also inspired by the fact that

WE ARE GOING TO GET SNOW

in Maine TODAY!

Yes. YES! The Lane family is excited. The fact that we’ve lived on multiple continents, various countries, all over the U.S.A. and not really having had a lot of snow for the past 15 years has generated great enthusiasm in my children at the snowy forecast here.

Here’s look at our house, lit up and awaiting the first snow. I hope to have some lovely snowy photos to share tomorrow. (My husband and I moved away during the summer of 1995 and we may be just as excited as our children.)

In the meantime, here’s a peek at my new (still in the works) craft space.

I hope that you enjoyed your visit and will come back soon.  Click HERE to follow my honeybeelane board on Pinterest.

I have a scheduled post for AAA Cards that will be up tomorrow. Here’s a peek at that.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

Melissa

I have 1 card to share with you using Leaves 1.

I stamped the sentiment, masked off the wreath shape, sponged several green inks through the stencil and then added gold and silver stenciled leaves as well.

I enjoyed using this beautiful new stencil. Make sure you stop over at the STAMP blog to hop along and check all of the STAMPlorations Girls’ creations. I hope you have a good day.
