Joy

I know Halloween is right around the corner, but I am still working on my Christmas cards.  It has been really nice to continue them throughout the year so that when December comes, there is no rush!  For this card, I used the Card Crazy #3 sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches again.  I love this simple sketch!!

Here is the card I came up with:

This card also fits a few more challenges. 
Items used: Bo Bunny Snow Serenade paper and stickers; Petaloo flower; star shaped rhinestones (I'm sorry - I can't remember where they are from, but I LOVE them!)

I have had the pleasure of my own personal retreat this weekend.  We had nothing on the calendar, and I didn't have to work.  So I have been in my craft room creating away all weekend.  What a joy to sit down and create without hurrying.  I love that!  I hope you've had the a good weekend - whatever you are doing!
