Joy to the World The Lord Is Come

SSSC

SSSI loved Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch this week as the large circle provided endless opportunities.  Of course, I jumped at the chance to take the sketch literally and used a snowflake.

Dug into my I Believe MME papers again and used this fun paper.   Just love this Verve Plain Jane sentiment.  Yes, you guessed right - that big, bold "joy" is what I love about it.  I over stamped the cross as Christmas and Easter go hand in hand.  Though Easter is not as "pleasant" a celebration, it brings me great joy through the proclamation of prophecies and promises fulfilled.  The joy keeps pouring in :)  

Rest of the card is self expalanatory.  Hang in there with the snowflakes...soon enoguh it will be hearts, hearts and more hearts wink, wink!


Wishing you great joy today!
