Flourshes Christmas!

You may have seen me write earlier in the month that I wanted to play along with the Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge, but after I had made my entry, I realized it required you to use Flourishes stamps.  Well my friend Betty Benton seen that post and did the sweetest thing.  When we got together recently to work on Christmas cards, she showed up with a little surprise for me!!  She had  Flourishes Christmas Stamps and let me stamp a couple of images so I could play along.  I have to tell you that I LOVED the images soooo much that I have to add some of them to my Christmas stamp collection.  The hardest part was trying to come up with a Christmas Carol to go along with the image, since that's part of the contest.  So here is what I came up with ...


And the song that inspired me : Let there be Peace on Earth by Vince Gill.  I just thought the doves looked so peaceful and went with this carol perfectly.
I used one of the sketch challenges for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges to inspire me.  Aren't those dove's so lovely!  I HAVE to have this set.


Have a great day!
