Here is my card, Peace on Earth, for this weeks MIX98 Holiday Spritz Challenge hosted by Jeanne.
Now I am just going to own this straight up. I am splatter challenged - yes, ma'am! But I continue to try. I'm a little like Elaine from the Seinfeld series. I splatter like she dances (she laughs).
I have another confession: I'm so far behind on Christmas cards it's pathetic! So today I've told myself I'll try to get some done for the immediate family. And, what better way than to play in the MIX98 challenge?! Don't you love Marcella Hawley's illustrations? I've loved them since I began stamping. I thought I'd pull out my Copics to color up that beautiful poinsettia. For our Holiday Spritz I added Ranger Perfect Pearls Powder mixed with water and gave it my best shot, err, I mean splatter (giggle).
Thank you to those who have written me to ask if everything is okay, I appreciate your thoughtfulness. I'm just fine. I needed a little break, and I have been doing a little re-organization. A little spring cleaning before spring. I'm already loving the way I've cataloged and packaged my stamps for storage (thanks to the talented and VERY organized Jennifer McGuire). Her system really works for me.
Thank you Jeanne for hosting this week. I'm so glad I could play along. And to all who stop by for a visit, thank you so much.
Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. And, may you blessed beyond measure with health and happiness in the new year.
Sending Christmas Hugs and Love to all

Wow - this is stunning. Your colouring is beautiful and I love the gold embossed "Peace on Earth". So good to hear you're doing well. I haven't been around as much as I'd like to have been recently but am I ever glad to have had a few minutes today so that I could see this beauty.

So great to see you back, Susie. Although I forgot that you bring out a bad qulity in me...I am green with envy over your amazing copic coloring. The pointsetia is stunning. I could sit here and admire it all day. Right into my favs.
