Joy To The World 38

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 24, 2011 @ 5:25 AM | , ,

Happy Saturday! I'm typing this post before I head out the door to take Meri to her horse riding lesson. While she's off riding a horse, my sweet sister Tina & I are off riding our bikes :) Although the temps are still in the 100's here, it's cool in the 80's early in the morning ~ PERFECT for bike riding. Tomorrow, we head out of town for a mini Fall break. Do you have anything fun planned this weekend?

I made this rather CAS Christmas card featuring a few of my favorite products. I recently stumbled across the pretty patterned paper that I used to make this card in a Vintage store that specializes in Vintage home decor! It's  Pink Paislee's retired Father Christmas collection but I don't care ~ I think it is gorgeous and I am on the lookout for more!
The stamped focal point is a combination of the pretty wreath like image from Waltzingmouse Faux Fun Circles and the Joy sentiment from Say It Loud Winter Holiday. I love that so many of the Waltzingmouse stamps may be easily mixed and matched ~ giving you a lot of mileage from your stamps :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ hope you like what you see :) Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Say It Loud Winter Holiday , Faux Fun Circles
Dies: Spellbinders Standard Circles SM, Lacey Circles, Grand Calibur, Classic Petal
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Father Christmas
Other: Claudine Hellmuth Blank Canvas Studio One paint, SU ink, ribbon and button from stash
Cardstock: PTI
