MOJO250, WAW37 & SSIC147 ~ Christmas Joy

Praise be to our Lord who always provides! A few weeks ago, I shared how hot and DRY it was here in my beloved Bluegrass state. As of Thursday, we had over 6 inches of rain! WOW! Definitely answered prayers! Our lawn has rebounded and today dear hubs will mow the lovely crop of weeds AND grass that has sprung up seemingly overnight. I am so very grateful for continual provisions!

I created today's card for a few challenges including the weekly Mojo Monday challenge, Stampin' Sisters in Christ plus their sister site, Word Art Wednesday.

Here is this week's Mojo sketch...

And my take... ANOTHER Christmas card!!! My stash is growing! ;-)

I found the coordinating DP at Hobby Lobby. I love it! The base is cream card stock (5.5 x 4.25 inches) with embossed black card stock matting. I stamped the sentiment (Our Daily Bread Designs' Christmas Blessings) with black ink on the same cream CS before cutting/embossing with a Spellbinder Die. The bottom layer of DP has a bit of ecru lace peeking out on both the top and bottom. I also cut tiny tags out of the music print to tuck under the edge. I created the poinsettia with a Spellbinders die and added some paper punched greenery and 2 silver bells (for sparkle) and an altered pearl flourish. If you look closely, you can see a bit of yellow Flower Soft in the center of the blossom. I just love the non-traditional colors! Thanks as always for stopping by!
