I took the past 2 days off and just enjoyed my family. I hope you all did too! I decided to use this stamp set I purchased and didn't put together *gasp* until today!
If you have been here before, you know that an ALL ABOUT JOY card is for my girlfriend Joy, who wants me to make cards using Stampin' Up! Only - but you know there are times, I can't help but deviate from that and use other embellishments. So this is a card for Joy! There are TWO things that are not SU - the cuttle bug Swiss Dots AND the Red Bling Stickers. She will understand though and still HAVE to love me, despite my straying from the original plan, RIGHT?
This week's Bloggers Challenge is a CELEBRATION theme, so I decided to focus on Valentine's Day. In fact...the next week or so will be cards with that theme, I think. LOL I wan tto focus now on something other than Christmas cards. I feel I have been making a ton of those and I am ready to do something else! When you are done looking here, be sure to check out the other Blogger Challenge participants (links are on the Bloggers Challenge icon.) Their work is SURE to WOW you!
Next week will be the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop and Release Party! I hope to see you all there!
