Christmas Peace to One and All!


Where has this past week gone?! I'm sure most of you are wondering the same thing. Life is especially busy this time of year and there are never enough hours in the day for everything we want to accomplish.

I haven't stamped all week, other than making a few gift tags. For the first time ever, I applied to a design team and didn't make the cut. It shouldn't bother me, but it did take the wind out of my sails for a few days.

This card I made tonight was super simple and the image speaks for itself. I wasn't sure what colors to use, so settled on basic black and white. Hopefully, the simplicity evokes a peacefulness.

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas filled with love, joy and peace.
Hugs & Smiles, Pam :)

Supplies ~
Stamps: Peace - Penny Black
Paper: Stampin Up Basic Black, White
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Stampendous Detail Clear Embossing Powder

Sorry you didn't make the team, but I'm sure at another point in time you'll get there:) Your work is certainly deserving:)
I like this black & white color scheme. I find it quite soothing to look at.
Good to see you posting again, and have yourself a very merry Christmas too!

Pam, I love this black and white card! Gorgeous! There are plenty of other design teams ready to snatch you up! Keep on stampin', okay?!

With your amazing talent, Pam, it is that particular teams loss not to have you on it. But I'm confident it wasn't meant to be because something you don't know about yet will sure to present itself in 2008 and now you'll be ready!

I LOVE this black and white faux postage card. How can something be so simple, so elegant and so cute all at the same time!?? Beautiful!

Merry Christmas!

Great card! Love the black and white!

Please try not to be too let down about the DT. It doesn't mean your work isn't good (cause it IS).

I've been wondering where you were this week. Obviously there are better DTs out there meant for you. No one can dispute your quality of work or say that you don't measure up. who were they? we'll boycott!...how DARE they do that to our smily girl...;)
Sorry...I got a little riled. But you just say the word, and we're there for you. :D

I am shocked! Who wouldn't want you on their DT! Your cards are so inspiring, wonderful, the bomb! SERIOUSLY. Jennifer is correct - something better is awaiting you Pam. Keep stamping - you spread so much joy. Holiday Hugs.

They must have over the top standards cause your work is beautiful. You just were not meant to design for them cause the perfect team for you is coming along and you do want to be available when they do!
Have a blessed Christmas!

There is a purpose for everything in life Pam and perhaps this time around you are just to busy in life to make the team. Think about it carefully and you will see that it's probably for the best.

Your card is lovely as they always are!
