Every Good Wish…comes from the heart! Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Kwanzaa or Hanukkah (or any other holiday), my wish is for quality time with friends and family, spent appreciating, encouraging and serving each other. I pray for laughter and joy to permeate the atmosphere of your celebrations. I pray for healing where it might be needed, and that everyone contributes humbly to that purpose. May it be a time of merriment, peace, love and joy!
Whether someone wishes you “Happy Hanukkah”, “Happy Kwanzaa” or “Merry Chritmas”, the intent is the same…you are wishing your fellow man the best of all wishes for all whom he loves! Please don’t be offended if I say “Merry Christmas” to your Hanukkah and I will not be offended at your best wishes for a “Happy Kwanzaa” to my Christmas. Yes, Jesus is my Lord and Savior, but, no I’m not offended by friendly greetings. Let us choose to not think the worst of a greeting extended to us. Let us choose to think the best…that it was offered in love. Choose to not be offended, it is a very freeing thing to experience! Choose to get caught up in the joy of the season, wishing everyone, every good wish.
Stepping off of my soap box now…the name of this stamp set obviously triggered some thoughts in me that I wanted to share. I hope it is an encouragement to you.
On to stamping…what an easy stamp set to work with! I love the splotch of color with the negative space word images. This would look good in any color! I guess I was pretty traditional with my color choices. Maybe I’ll make one in Elegant Eggplant or Bermuda Bay…Lemon Lime Twist would be another good choice…
It was easy to cut out the poinsettia die cuts and pop them into the Wood Textures DSP that I cut with the same thinlit dies, with a tiny little bit of glue.
For the bottom right card, I used the technique below to partially cut the Whisper White card stock. I placed a whole scalloped circle die cut of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper behind the the partial circle.
