Joy to you and me!

I just sent off my Caring Hearts cards and now I am working on my batch for next year.  No procrastination here...ha ha!!  I used the sketches from My Favorite Things.  I changed the orientation and it should fit into the Mojo Monday sketch too.


I just got this Christmas tree die cut so I wanted to use it.  I put red circles in the open areas.  I ran my ribbon on the stamp pad to get it to the color I wanted and pleated it.  Then I looked through the button can (my mother had the best button can in the world!  Us kids would sit every Sunday in the winter and play bingo with my mother's buttons as the radio announced the numbers. I had more fun looking at the buttons than playing bingo and my mother had quiet children for two hours every Sunday afternoon!)

I am posting this card to:


  1. Very cute card! I love the traditional color scheme and that die is just fab.

    Somebody special just sent me this Christmas tree! ;) I was so happy when I opened my mail today!! I CANNOT WAIT to use that stencil, Omygosh!! I about died!

  2. Did you see the strip of paper around your die cuts? It said ready, set, create!!
