JOY to the World

Crazy week so far, and it's only Wednesday. I'm out of town today on family business, tending to my aging parents. Wish me luck!! Here is our latest sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, sure hope you can join in on the fun.

And our sponsor this week is the one and only A Day for Daisies.

"A DAY FOR DAISIES provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!"

Our winner will receive a $12 gift certificate to the ADFD store.

 And here is my card, a 4.25" square card using the image A Special Gift. This image speaks volumes, I think. I used a paper pack I just got, Fa La La by Lawn Fawn. I liked the teal, red and yellows, so unique for a Christmas themed card. Kept it simple with not a lot of embellishments, just a tag with the Joy to the World Sentiment. Perfect. Now again, I sure hope you can join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday on 12/12/12.

Hi Linda I just love the simplicity of your card. Your new papers are just so pretty and work perfectly with this image. This image didn't need to be over embellished, I could get away with it with the image I used. Love this card. Take care and have a lovely week.
