Peace, Joy, and Comfort Food (Be Inspired!)

This Christmas in July card is for The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired challenge. Here's the inspiration picture.

I used two TAWS stamp sets: Christmas Magic and Kitchen Gadgets 2.

Christmas Magic is a sentiment set that has lots of holiday related words. 'Food' is not part of the set. I used the old masking tape trick and took the 'f' and 'o's from the word 'comfort' and the 'd' from the word 'child'. The d is a little smaller than the rest of the letters, but it was the closest size and I don't think you notice unless you know, and of course I went and told you....

I'm going to link this one up over at Kim Kesti's blog too since I used something new (the Christmas Magic set) as well as some papers I founds when I was going through the archives. The red star paper is from a little 5x7 stack that I THINK might be DCWV, but it's missing the cover (go figure), and the silver metallic paper is Creative Memories.

Hope that your week is going well! I've been busy following all the goings on at the CTMH convention. There's some exciting stuff coming, so stay tuned!
