I left nearly all of my Christmas stamps and supplies at our home in an effort to cut back on what I packed in the motor home for this summer. I do have this Christmas tree embossing folder, and my 7Gypsies stamp that includes the word JOY - tied with a bit of Martha Stewart cord. I know the tree is very hard to see - there is glitter added for the baubles. Branches from the Cheery Lynn Wreath die are in the corners - also with glitter added. This die is from Joan's Gardens store - I am so happy to have found it.

sentiment. The bg cs has a bit of texture and very subtle design - I did use the Victoria embossing folder to add more dimension - all that does not show too well on the screen. I used the same cs for the butterfly, and lightly sponged the edges with chocolate chalk. The image is sponged with a mixture of colors (chalk) to match the bg. I added ribbon and Zingz tear drops from Fiskars. The mat is a blue grey cs. This is a color combination I will use again. The Word Art challenge is for any inspirational verse, with a suggestion of a theme of joy - though this is a sympathy card, we are reminded of the joy of eternal life we anticipate.

These colors do not look right on the screen - sorry! These adorable papers were sent by a friend, and they are mounted on Kraft cs. The die cut buttons and tiny medallion punches are also Kraft.
The camper is colored with water color pencils.

"D" for Dorothy, dots, and die cuts: http://cuttlebugmania.blogspot.co.uk/
Right now we are asking for prayers for friends and their family - their son-in-law, Glen (in his 50's), fell down a long cement staircase. He is in a coma, and the family has been called home as the prognosis is not good.
This is a digital image from TLC Creations. It is a lovely image, and great to use with the shading and background. The white layer is CB Victoria. I clipped the corners to follow the sketch. A layered Nestie, Martha Stewart punched border, and ribbon complete the card - easy, and in my estimation, elegant.
