Joy to the World

Good morning dear friends!!! Well, I thought I should post this card as it’s getting quite the attention over on Splitcoast Stampers.  One of the commenters for this card told me that it was in the Favourites thread for this week….wow, I didn’t even know there was such a thread!!!  What an unexpected honour since this sketch really intimidated me with all the panels.  It’s for this week’s Viva La Verve challenge over on the Verve forum.  Once I started playing with all the snowflakes, I felt a lot happier about it :)
I’ve used several different snowflake dies, punches and stamps to create this…it is really sparkly in person and has already been given away to a coworker with a little gold box of Purdy’s chocolates :)  She loved it…I only changed one thing… I added a button and twine to the snowflake image on the tag…after taking the picture, I thought that little snowflake looked sad not having a little something on its middle :)  Thanks for stopping by…our Christmas Concert is today and tomorrow!!! Wish us luck :)

What a gorgeous card, Maureen! I love the light blue, white and kraft combo. It's so sparkly with all of the pretty snowflakes. Have a great day!

Loving it all over again today on your blog :) Love the blues with the pop of kraft. Fabulously done :)

Hope the Christmas concert goes well. We don't have one this year as we have Al Pitchler coming to our school in the spring to do a school wide production of The Wizard of Oz. This is his third time at our school since my kids have been there and he is simply amazing! K - 7 gets involved and it blows my mind what he can do in a month. So looking forward to seeing the production :)
