Default January Challenge

I will start us off. As a New Year rolls around, I can't help but feel sad that there is sill so much strife in the world. So I think an appropriate challenge for the New Year is this:

Create a card based on the idea of peace. This can be a dove, a sentiment such as Peace on Earth, an olive branch - anything that reflects one of our main Christmas wishes for the world and for each other.

The monthly challenge or theme is optional - it's just for fun or inspiration! The main idea is get cards done ahead of time so Christmas is less stressful.

I'm laughing because I think of this challenge as FOR slackers! I can't say how many months I got close to the end before forcing myself to do cards.

And boy, am I glad I did!

So far, I've pulled out my stamps with doves or "peace" on them, and some DP, and am now looking at the gallery. It's a start!!!

I just realized that even though I have four of my five cards done for January, I've only posted a link to one! Guess I had better get the others linked!
