PEACE Xmas Red w/ Flowers & Ribbon Card

Heard on the news this morning that David Bowie died. He died of cancer that he was battling for 18 mths. He celebrated his 69th bday & released his new CD Blackstar Fri. Hubby & I watched a DB concert on Paladium channel from 1999. I like his music. My fav Christmas song is a duet by David Bowie & Bing Crosby "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy." Bought his new CD Sat. 

Nothing can touch you now in your golden years. Golden forever! Rock on, David Bowie!

There is one helluva concert going on in heaven with many music legends.

Bought this Hero Arts Christmas stamp set on sale after Christmas at Michaels. Set is rubber wood and has 4 stamps: HOPE, JOY, LOVE & PEACE. Using stamp-a-ma-jig and MISTI (yes I also use this when stamp is not a clear or cling) since it is easy to line up with grids and the foam padding gives the stamp a good impression surface. Added some Christmas floral pattern cardstock. Added ribbon. Used a Stampin' Up punch to make 2 circle flower embellishments.
