You don't need a better excuse to play along than that do you ? 
So head on over to Handmade Halo on Facebook {HERE
for all the details! 

I was going to make a card for this challenge, 
was even going to go white on white! OMG! 
But ... 
I got side tracked lol 
and I have ended up with a tag :) 

Peace for me would have to include Christmas.  As it the one day of the year that as a family, all grievances are put aside and we all come together as one.  (And yes, this includes me letting my psychotic Sister-In-Law in my house, only happens once a year, and yes, she ignores me the whole day!)  Thank goodness 'IT' is not my actual blood relation! - Things I do for my Mr Pita lol

 Angels and doves have to be in there too! 
And of course a magical winter wonderland with snow & snowflakes - is there anything more placid and peaceful than a blanket of white?



I went looking for a dove image, but I found this gorgeous angel one over at Pintrest and I feel in love with it and had to use it (you know how it goes :)  To replace having no dove I raided my feather box and found this really nice whispy white feather that I popped behind a chipboard snowflake and popped a pearl in the center.  The tag I covered with Graphic 45 papers from my scraps basket. Along the bottom I did a diecut fancy border and up the top I added some mini pearls for snowflakes falling from the sky.  

I wanted a 'soft look' so I added some lace to it all along the bottom and up along side the image, and the image got a light dusting of glitter too.  The pearl flourish is a section from a Flourish With a Bling flourish.  And everything got a lovely coat of TH Distress inks too. 

I have fallen in love with this tag!  
As I often seem to do with things I make lol 

Corinne would love you to play along the 
 So head on over to

I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
