I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy...

After I made this card and stamped "Joy" three times, I had that old song going thru my head. :-)

Sorry I've been MIA on my blog, but I've had other things to do and still not enough time to do them. sigh... I promise I'll try to do better, but I'm not promising WHEN I'll get the next things posted. I've got to edit the photos first.

My post today is part of an Angel Blog Hop--demonstrators from The Angel Company are participating, and the theme is "Christmas in July."

I know it seems odd to have the rounded corner in the upper left of a card, but I decided that's where I wanted it. :-) IRL the colors match much better--the ink really does match the paper, but I just couldn't get it right. Sorry!

Supplies: Joyful Ornaments, white ultrasmooth cardstock, Cardstock Caboodle D (both purples), Violete Palette ink, Crystal Stickles, Corner Chomper, Diamonds Impressies and ribbon.

Hopefully you can see the Impressies embossing as well as the Stickles on the Joy.
Be sure to check out all the other Angels' art!
