One Word: Joy


Good morning!!! Do you ever get that really giddy feeling when you’re making a card and everything is falling into place and you just love what is forming in front of you?  That’s what happened this morning making this card.  Though card making makes me happy in general (except when the mojo fails to show up or the patterned paper takes over and goes crazy!), sometimes I have the feeling of total bliss when putting things together.  This card uses Mercy’s fabulous Tuesday Sketch and is custom made for my son’s girlfriend, Joyce, who by the way was named as such so she would have Joy in her life.  How beautiful is that?  No other stamp than this Verve “Joy” came to mind…simple and elegant :)  Some more rustic bells (Aimes…that’s 108 left!), a super glittery star and seam binding ribbon, oh my!!! And some more of that gorgeous My Mind’s Eye paper that my friend Melisa gave me :)  I also finally got to use the Very Vintage labels No. 10 set from Waltzing Mouse :)  So Moe really likey :)  What is giving you joy today?  Smiles and hugs and joy to you all :)




what’s in it?

stamps: verve merry wishes; waltzing mouse vintage labels no. 10

paper: pti cream, su soft sky, pink pearl cardstock; my mind’s eye dp

You're working magic with this designer paper! Love it! I'm so inspired... wish I had time to play! Thanks so much for the nice comments about my card yesterday! Have a great day! Mine is off to a wonderful start!

Jackie likey, too!! You girls are killing me with these rusty jingle bells!! I'm about to order some right now!!

Gorgeous card, Moe!!

Oh this card is just DIVA! It's sooooooo your style and no wonder it all fell into place so perfectly for you! Bet Joyce will love this (I love the reasoning behind her name!)
P.S 108 bells and counting ;D

This card screams "Moe" :) I definitely think of you when I see these colours and I'm sure Joyce will love it too. Mike's in Langley was all sold out of all their Christmas crafty stuff and were starting to pull out Valentine's Day stuff!!! Guess I just have to hope they'll be around next year. If not, at least I have lots of silver bells to work with :)

I can almost smell the cake down here LOL! Enjoy your dinner with your dad and enjoying Jake's birthday cake. Tag info will post tomorrow :)
