LPS Monday-Peaceful Dove...

Good Monday morning to you all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was busy as all get-out, but really fun.

I have a card for you today using the Flourished Dove set from The Little Paper Shop. I thought it was fitting since....well, have you heard? We got SNOW here last night in the Chicago 'burbs!!! Not enough to stick in most places, but the last I checked, it's still October!!! Yikes!

I am NOT a fan of the white stuff, but I am totally a fan of this set! So, even though I'd prefer to be in a warmer climate, this set really does get me in the holiday spirit!

For this card, I used some winter DP from Heidi Grace and used Beate's weekend sketch after seeing my friend and fellow LPS DT member Laura's card. I am always inspired by Laura's work. It is always so, so stunning. I am really loving the Baja Breeze color by Stampin Up, too...I'm sad that it's only an "in color" shade and am going to have to order it in droves so that I don't run out before I'm good and sick of it (if that even happens!) LOL.

I also really like the look of liquid pearls. I've been having a lot of fun using them and think they add such pretty detail, especially to a card such as this.

Be sure to check out the Little Paper Shop website and take advantage of a great promotion this week...you can earn the newly released Flyin' By stamp set w/ a $50 purchase. What's more? Free shipping w/only a $45 purchase, so stock up on this set and other awesome holiday ones so you can crank out those cards! Thanks for reading and enjoy your day! Hugs,

This is so soft and lovely - I love the little punched lace tucked under the ribbon! I can't believe you have snow already!! We are just breaking out our Fall jackets here.
Hugs, Jami
