Tis the Season - DS82


I'm back, friends, with my sample for this week's Deconstructed Sketch, #82. I turned it on its side because I really, really wanted to make something with this new-to-me Cat's Pajamas stamp set J*lly H*liday, and the horizontal panel worked best. (And I tilted that focal panel just for fun!) The papers are from the Echo Park This & That Christmas collection (a mixure of 6x6 and 12x12 papers). Some of the new TCP CutUps dies make an appearance as well. The notebook edge along the top is from the Toppers CutUps set, and the curvy landscape and snowflake edge are from the Holiday Toppers CutUps set (love these!). The scallop and reverse scallops are both from Queen of Hearts CutUps.

Here's the sketch again:


And here are links to the Deconstructed Girls' creations:





Okay, so here's the thing, despite it being the season, I'm having a hard, hard time being jolly after last week's Sandy Hook tragedy. Tears flow often, and when they're not flowing, they're ever close to the surface. Like all of you, my heart is broken and aching for the victims, their families, and the community. I'm reminded of something a pastor once said at the funeral of another too-young victim of tragedy. He shared, "I'm going to have to wrestle with you on this one, Lord." But he also said, "I'd rather wrestle with God than wrestle alone." Exactly.

Peace and love to all.

Beautiful Christmas card, love the traditional colours with the "wood" panel!
I've heard the tragic news on TV, and I just can't understand how could anyone point a gun at innocent kids - only to think they were of my kids' age!... So sorry for the families!

Big huge hugs Amy. Your card is gorgeous and I just love the stamp set you used.

I am 100% there with you. I find myself struggling in class, at home, in the car and it hits me at the oddest times. I'm certain I'm going to wrestling with this one for an awfully long time. HUGS.
