colourQ challenge #222

My paper crafting time and skills seem to have taken a hit over the holidays, but I cooked and baked like a BOSS so my hands weren't too idle over the past few weeks! Hope y'all had a very merry Christmas! My family had a wonderful holiday! Personal note: I've tried my entire adult life to have a peaceful, Christ-filled Christmas, and it has never happened, despite making changes here and there to our schedules and traditions over the years. But this year - THIS YEAR - was lovely! We did several service projects, saw Santa, had lots of fun, set reasonable expectations, and enjoyed being together. It truly was MIRACULOUS!! And I realized only yesterday how successful we'd been when a friend sent over a belated Christmas gift and I didn't even realize she hadn't given us a gift. I DIDN'T KEEP SCORE THIS CHRISTMAS!! This is huge for me! So, enough about me - this is the card that took about 5 tries and several different approaches to finally complete! I saw the inspiration on Pinterest,  but I didn't have the stamps used for the sentiment. I tried using letter stamps and stickers and I didn't like the result. I wish I could do calligraphy or that I had had small, script letter stickers for this card. The FAN{TACHE}TIC is cut using my BRAND NEW Silhouette Cameo which is probably my fourth favorite Christmas gift of all time, right behind my engagement ring, my iPhone, and my cobalt blue Kitchenaid mixer! Thanks for stopping by today! Go check out this week's colourQ challenge and get some inspiration for the new year!
