A Wish for Peace Christmas card and dove svg


I just got back from spending the weekend at the in-laws for Thanksgiving. It was nice to see everyone, although a bit of a rough trip. Its about 6 hours each way and as anyone know who's traveled with children, 6 hrs is an eternity to a 6 year old (and I was traveling with 2 of them). I don't know how many times I heard "how much looonnngger". We got a flat tire on the way there, that was fun. Then we stopped for gas and the pump card thingy ate our card. The in laws have intermittent dial up internet - not good for an internet junky like myself. BUT, we did have a lovely time visiting and Carls parents watched the kids for us so we could shop in Portland for a while Friday without children. I did have my computer with me so while others slept, I played with inkscape and made a few files...enough to keep me busy testing and using the files this week. Here is the first one, a Christmas dove. Great for a card, or attach to a string for a tree ornament. I ran the wings through the cuttlebug and put the top one on with pop dots for added dimension. There is glitter on the tail and I used a brad for the eye. There is a very pretty dove on one of my Christmas carts but I really wanted one with a wing I could emboss, so this is it! File is below. Thanks for looking, hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday weekend!
