Christmas Joy

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life blog today.
It's Thanksgiving weekend and the Christmas season officially kicked off yesterday with Black Friday. Shopping, decorating, cookie and candy making plus card making are all activities on my list. I usually start decorating a little each day and my intention is to start decorating today.
I have already started Christmas shopping and have made a big dent in my list. There are big deals everywhere this weekend. I hope to pick up a few more gifts either online or in a brick and mortar store.
For today I am showing a card I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz blog. Here are some details on how I created my card.
Started with my layout, and I used the Splitcoaststampers sketch #721. It was perfect for my card idea.
I decided to stick with the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. My designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "be merry" collection. I thought this paper carried the Christmas theme through nicely.
I used the Holiday Mantel and Handmade Tree w/Presents dies for my images. For the Joy Phrase, I used  the Stitched Alphabet die.
I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment on the square with the present. I "hung" the garland on the square with the stockings. The Stitched Joy phrase was placed at an angle for added interest.
To complete my card, I added a few red & green sequins. Well that's it for me for today. So until next time...…...God bless.
