Christmas Joy

Christmas Joy open 2011
Hope everyone has had a great week and is almost finish with their Christmas shopping. This is the time of year I like to stay out of the stores. It is really crazy out their. So I lit my fingers do the walking. Time this year has gone by so fast and I say that every year. Remember when you where a child, waiting on a Saturday for something you have planned with your friends and if seam like time took forever. So many things we did not know then. Even waiting for Santa and you thought he was never coming and that was for just one day and now we are talking about years!!!
We are starting a new challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday, I do have to say the DT’s have more then out done themselves for this challenge you need to stop by and see all the wonderful cards and if you do please leave some love for all the girls. The challenge is GATEFOLD/HOLIDAY THEME. Their are all kinds of Gatefold cards here is one from Splitcoast stampers so if you would like to join us we would love to see your card. The challenge ends December 21, 2011.
Christmas Joy front 2011 This is the front of my card. Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Accents, I used two of the dies from that set. I also used Aleene glitter snow. I’m sorry it looks a little messy but some how when I was gluing the medallion in the middle the glue smeared on the left side and it did not look so good and that was the last thing to do. So what can I do??? But cover it up, so that is why the glitter snow is their. The sentiment stamp is from The Angel Company. The tag is punched out with Stampin’up Large and Extra Large tag punches. Used 1/16” hand punch from McGill’s to make a hold for the thread on the tag.

Christmas Joy cover 2011 
Here is a picture of it opening. I rounded all the edges wit the Zutter 1/2 inch corner rounder. I really like the Zutter because it will round pretty much any thickness. My paper is from Holiday Collection from DCWV. I used a sticker for the Merry Christmas and that is from Stampendous.

Here is the close up of an image from Mo Manning called Christmas Fairy Holly. I colored her with Prisma Colored Pencils. Burnish around the edges with Brilliance Pearlescent ink color Line. Spellbinder die is Fleurde Lis Rectangles. Add some Pearl Pen in Pearl White and Red.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I love all your comments and really appreciate it when you take the time to leave one. Merry Christmas everyone.

Merry Christmas Everyone, Hugs, Patricia

Christmas Fairy Holly looks gorgeous in her beautiful green dress and the wings are so pretty! Love the pearls going around the base. But what I like the most is opening the doors to see what's inside!! Hugz
