Snowflake Joy

Snowflake Joy photo SnowflakeJoy.jpg

Loved this Seize the Sketch sketch.  So may ways you can go with it.  My sentiment shifted a teensy bit - okay a lot LOL - but the guts of the sketch are there.  No stamping on this card either!

Continuing on in my Christmas card theme, I had great fun pulling out two of my favorite Christmas dies:  the PTI snowflake and this wonderful "JOY" die!  Joy is my favorite Christmas word and I love using it on Christmas cards.

Also broke in my new MFT chevron dies. Yes, I'm slow to get on the trendy bandwagon, and may have missed the rush, but I'm happy I finally have them and look forward to using them.

The paper is Carta Bella's Winter Fun and I just love it!  I got it last year at my LSS and wish I'd gotten a few more sheets as I just love the colour combo.  I blinged up the "joy" a bit and added a twine bow.

Thanks for popping by today.

Love the colors and of course...the JOY...that too is my favorite sentiment on a Christmas card!

Gorgeous! We just talked about "joy" in Sunday School today, in relationship to heaven! The two go hand in hand, so it is a good word for sure!
