On to the cards I made for today.
First up is my Peace on Earth card. 
 In my mini Misti I stamped the beautiful image called A Time of Peace using Memento Ink, and coloured with Copic Markers in Violet tones. I then die cut the panel with the Birch Press die. The die has hearts included in the frame, but I did not want the hearts to be a focal, so I die cut upside down and kept the pieces intact. I matted the panel with violet card stock and attached to my card base. I then die cut the label and keeping it in the card stock piece placed it back in my Misti and stamped the sentiment with black ink. I finished with a few crystals and Wink of Stella on the Angel's wings.
Next up is a cute little Mouse called Special Delivery Mouse.
Stamping in my mini Misti, where I also colour.
I arranged placement of my card and panel in my mini Misti to decide on where I wanted to die cut for the image. I wanted the circle to be on the edge originally, but the image looked better to me having a frame all the way around, so in the centre it was. 
I die cut the circle, then attached fun foam to the remaining panel and attached that to my card base.

On the circle and in my mini Misti I stamped the image using Memento Ink.  I then proceeded to colour this fun little image, again using my Copic Markers. Once finished I applied glue and pushed it down inside the circle. A few drops of Nuvo Jewel Drops finished this card. 
 I hope you have enjoyed these cards made for today's hop.

Now back to the hop. You will be looking for Susan next. You can find the hop order at any time by visiting My Sweet Petunia or Unity Stamps.

Have fun!💖

Both of these Unity stamps are just lovely! Your cards are beautiful, I especailly like all the stitching around the circle and outside border on the Special Delivery stamp! Your purples on the Peace on Earth stamp are so pretty and soft - gives it a truly “peaceful” look. The Misti continues to rock my stamping world! Thanks for sharing your talents!
