Oh Little Town

Hello all you fabulous paper artists in blogland!

Develop Self-control
He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a 
city that is broken down and without walls.

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone!
The 2014 Festive Christmas Collection has JUST RELEASED. Warm shining candles, cozy Bethlehem scenes, script ornaments and doves as elegant and peaceful as a snowy Christmas evening capture the elegance, festivity and real meaning that Christmas is about. But the best thing of it all is that there’s something for everyone in this collection. There are limited quantities available!! 

Christmas is a couple of months away, but now is the time to start preparing for the festive seasons! Sometimes the best thing to do for someone to show them how much you care is simply create something beautiful for them. 

Here is my card using the Festive Christmas Collection in the traditional reds and greens.
