So which one is my favorite?  Well, that is a hard one.  Each set is like a child...  how can you love one more than another?  :-)  But there is one set, particularly this time of year I find myself gravitating toward.  That set is Blessed Christmas.  It is one of the first sets I purchased when I discovered Our Daily Bread Designs.  At that time, I was just starting to work with Copics and let me tell ya, I practiced and practiced and practiced with this set.  It is one of those go to sets I pull out every Christmas.  This time I opted not to color the image but do a very light inking/stamping with distress ink on the focal panel. 
 


Here is what the entire set, Blessed Christmas, looks like.  Isn't it lovely?


Now I will send you on your way to visit Angie's awesome blog!
Make sure to leave her some love! Big hugs and thanks so much for stopping by!

This is an awesome sketch design. I really like the muted color of the stamped poinsettia and how the sentiment really stands out. Great use of the little jingle bells too!!

I love that set too Lori, the sentiments and poinsettia are so beautiful that I use parts from it a lot, and I love the matching die.

I love the way you used it on this card. It's so peaceful and elegant with those colors and your choice of papers. The jingle bells add a perfect finishing touch!

Love love love this card Lori! And I have this set so I can try something similar! Thanks so much for the inspiration - I have not even started on my cards yet!
I can see so many possibilities for this stamp, no wonder it is one of your favorites. I really like the way you did it monochromatically. It's so different but still beautiful.
