Joy!


Good morning, friends!  Today I would like to share a card I made to finish up my card list.   The "JOY" stamp is one that I have had for many years.  I have no clue who made it, as it was an unmounted from a show, back in the day.  Papers are from My Minds Eye (Merry Days of Christmas), and I did use some lipstick red card stock, which I Cuttlebugged in the dotted swiss folder.  I used a Sakura pen for shimmer on the tiny hearts.  A Prima poinsettia and MS branch punches were attached, along with some red crinkled ribbon and Dew Drops.  The coloring was done with colored pencils and OMS for a change of pace, but shadowing is in Copic.  I added some free hand dots around little Stamps by Judith starbursts, and rounded things out with a bit of sponged ink by Colorbox. 

I would like to enter this in the weekly challenge over at Joan's Garden's.

That's it for me today.  I have been missing work due to medical issues, so I am going to make up some time today.  Hope your holiday is perking along!  Bless you all, and thanks for stopping by.

congrats on finishing your card list! I never seem to finish mine, in spite of having mailed them all out already! LOL I always make some "just in case" cards to keep on hand.
This is very pretty with the vibrant red color and pretty poinsettias! Hope you're feeling chipper again by now :)
