Peace on Earth - Tilda & C4C15

So, this card was a whole year in the making...literally!  This was one of the first images that I coloured using my copics.  I got it done back in April at the LSS Scrap-weekend.  The whole card was finished that day with the exception of a sentiment.  And there it sat, and sat, and sat.  I'm not sure why I had such a hard time with it...the card is cute enough.  So, in an effort to clean out unfinished "stuff" I pulled out a Stampendous sentiment I got at Archivers for $1.99 and finished the card.   As it turns out, my card qualifies for the Crazy for Challenges Week 15 challenge to use Snowflakes!

Today was a super busy day, which is why I am so late posting.  My parents arrived home from +26 weather in Florida to -26 weather here...what a shock for them!  They spent the morning with the little one and her class at a local farm, then we all went to the school in the afternoon to watch the Christmas Concert for the big kid.  Then the little one went skating and after that we all did the School Family Advent Mass.  Whew!  We finally walked in the door at 8:45, almost an hour past bed time.  Thankfully, the kids were exhausted and they went right to sleep. 

Todays Question:  What is the one present that you have secretly wanted for Christmas, but know you will never get?  For me , this is totally un-craft related.  I have always wanted a Kitchen-Aid know the professional one with the different mixing hooks, that you can buy the pasta making attachment for etc.    Yep, that's my secret dream.  A mixer.  LOL!  What do you want for Christmas this year?

Stamps:  Magnolia Tilda with Heart Ornament, Stampendous
Paper:  Unknown

Peace on Earth???

Aren’t humans amazing Animals? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions of more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."

Love it - her stockings are so adorable and I love your background and sentiment - I think the sentiment was worth waiting for...

Hey - I want a kitchen aid too! Gee - we should split the cost and share - Merry Christmas to us! (we live close enough....)
