Glad Tidings "Peace"


Happy Tuesday! Did everyone survive Monday and going back to work after a sugar-infested weekend?! lol! I was still pooped tonight, I'm not sure how, and didn't get a darned thing done! Ugh! Luckily I made this card Sunday with my leftover circles from this card and a leftover bird in my "parts pile".

The bird is made with the Big Shot and the SU exclusive Birds & Blooms Sizzlits die out of the Ski Slope DSP. The circles were punched out of the snowflake image from the retired Perfect Presentation hostess stamp set, and the "peace" is from the retired Glad Tidings Christmas set. Guess I ended up using lots of retired stuff, ooops! I love that Glad Tidings set, and I barely got to use it the last two years when I was a regular classroom teacher (NO time then!), so I need to make up for it now, right?!

I won't say "Don't forget to vote!" because how could you, there's election talk everywhere! lol! I will say this, we early voted last week, and for the first time in my voting history, I got teary in the polling booth. Something about seeing the name of my candidate for President, all these feelings just came rushing over me, feeling hopeful and excited and proud for our future.



You can get some super cool "I Voted" buttons from the fabulous Delaney here.

I hope you have a great Tuesday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
