Love and Joy Come to You

Morning my friends and Happy Sunday!

My one daughter has been home sick most of the week, and now it seems that one of my other daughter's is starting up with what the other twin had.  Yuck.  I haven't been able to get as crafty as I'd like, but was able to get this Christmas card done over the weekend when the hubs was home to help :)

I used this adorable Magnolia stamp and the current Sugar Bowl sketch as inspiration:

She and the Joy part of the TLC sentiment was colored in Copics.  I added some liquid pearls around her to mimic snowflakes and some Crystal stickles beneath her feet for snow.  There are Stardust stickles around the sentiment as well.  The ribbon is Martha Stewart Craft Seam Binding and the gorgeous white poinsettia was from a Michael's Recollections pack.  The red gems are a no-name....they came in one of those kits that have everything red from sequins to hearts.  The papers are from my new favorite collection by My Mind's Eye, Winter Wonderland.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

But just in case I am loosing it, I just wanted to let you know what an incredibly fabulous job I think you did with this adorable image. Such great paper and embellishment choices and of course the colouring is outstanding. It's so wonderful to see you back and creating up a storm.
