Joy

The Christmas season is upon us,
which is why I was so excited to see that Sarah G. selected
the code word JOY for Challenge # 78 at Addicted To CAS.
 
You can check out the design team cards and join in the challenge HERE.
 
 
 
I fell in love with this Joy Stamp & Cut set from Hero Arts when I first saw it, however
every place I tried to order it said it was out of stock...so frustrating.
While I was still moaning and groaning about not being able to get it,
my darling daughter Jennifer found it at scrapbook.com and had it sent to me as
a early Christmas gift.  YEA!
Since this is a pretty simple design, I wanted to add some interest by adding dimension,
so I cut the word out of a foam sheet and one out of white sparkle paper.
maybe this will show better what I mean:
 
 
That's a lot easier than cutting four or five layers.
The little green holly leaves were cut the same way
using an Impression Obsession die (DIE023-X).
Then I colored the edges of the white foam with a green marker.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
'till next time,
Doni

Christmas Stockings

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made 
to play along with Splitcoaststampers.
The challenge was to "put a sock in it",
and since I used such a cute stamp from The Cat's pajamas
I think I'll also enter it in the TCP Winter BlogHop 
for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher.

Like I said, the stamp is from The Cat's Pajamas.
I used word on the computer and wrote ...and the stockings were hung..
The coloring was done with Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by.

'till next time,
Doni
