Holiday Treats - Joy's Life Stamps Holiday Blog Hop
Hi everyone and Happy Friday!!! :) I don't know about you all, but I am SO happy it is Friday :) It's been the craziest week ever, but thankfully, I survived and I'm very much looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend. Hubby and I plan to finish getting our house decorated for Christmas, then hopefully we'll get to spend some quiet time getting caught up on our DVR recordings and hopefully a movie or two :) Anyway, thanks so much for joining me today. We have a super fun Holiday blog hop going on today, it's the Joy's Life Stamps Holiday Blog Hop!!! I have quite a few pictures of my project today so I'll quit chit chatting and get right to it :)
For my card today, I decided to use a non-traditional pink and pair it with more traditional colors (like red and green) to create a fun and colorful card. The adorable girl is from Lettering Delights (Holiday Shoppers Cut It Set). I LOVE Lettering Delights! This is my first time using one of their patterns and I am in love! Once you get the cut downloaded and opened in SCAL, you can see each layer, in a different color, making it so easy to see what you want to cut and what color you want to cut it in. I cut everything out using my wonderful Silhouette, then put everything together. I next created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. For some finishing touches, I added Prima flowers and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and a cute bow from Michael's.
The red and green twine was sent by Joy, Miss Joy's Life herself in a sweet DT package she sent me. The pink twine was from Scrappy Moms Stamps. Such a fun addition to the card! :) What do you think?
Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Your next stop on the Hop is Jennie's Blog HERE. If you get lost along the way, just go back to the beginning to Joy's blog HERE. Here is a complete list for the Hop:
