Joy to the World.....

Good Morning! Today I have a Christmas card to show you!! I figure I need to get going on these pretty hard as it will be here before we know it!! I have followed the gorgeous sketch from Whiff of Joy!! I just love the WOJ snowmen so I decided to go with this cutie!
I just had to use some cinnamon sticks on there as well. I found a bunch at a close out store here and Rachel broke a couple up so I thought they would be perfect for my cards!I have used some MME Christmas paper and the flowers are from Prima. I really enjoyed working with this sketch and I can see using it again!!
I roughed up all my edges with my scissors as well!!! Image is colored with distress inks and twinkling h20's.

Well thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope everyone has a fabulous day!!
I will be busy!! It has finally come that my oldest wants her own room!! I didn't think it would ever happen LOL! So my craft stuff and the computer has moved to the basement so she can get her room set up!! Don't really know how this is going to go but I guess it couldn't last that way forever!!!
I just know now I am going to constantly here "She won't get out of my room!!!!" haha Oh I can't wait!!!
