JOY

Hi everyone!!!
Boy I have been busy this week. Went to Lexington, KY. to teach a class and then decided to straighten up some of my paperwork, that keeps piling up, and then I caught the cleaning bug and ....... on and on. You know, life gets in the way at times.

Well I have just received a new Sizzix die and its a mover and shaper. I had a hard time finding this one so when I finally did find it I grabbed it right up.As I was looking at the die I wasn't quite sure how I would use it and I spied a glitter paper cut out piece that was just laying around, and decided that the joy die would fit perfectly in the center of it.

I decided this would look great on a very simple card. so here is the end result.


My card is submitted in the following challenges:
Thru the Craftroom Door
Lady Anne's Challenges
Christmas Stampin All Year Long(CSAYL)
Crafty Catz Challenge Blog
