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

This such an AWESOME comeback card. Like you I am woefully behind on my Christmas cards and I am starting on ones for close family first. The rest will be VERY late! Happy to hear your organizing came out so well. Your coloring on this is beyond stellar! And I certainly would never know you are splatter challenged....what you did looks like perfection to me! A PERFECT Christmas card....
