Joy to the World

Worked out for me to play in the Hero Arts Flickr 90 minute scramble--always fun & usually I end up with a card I like.  Guess not being able to think too much works for me.  I didn't want to miss another Merry Monday challenge, so made a card that works for both.  Charlene's challenge was to use at least 2 different stamp sets & these are both by Hero Arts: Starry Night & Merriest Christmas Wishes.  I stamped the tree image in Delicata Silvery Shimmer & covered it with spray glitter--so pretty in real life. Love the look of the little gems for the star & snowflakes. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.

Thought I'd leave you with a picture of our neighbors' beautiful Cherry Blossoms. I've worked more than usual lately, so catching up with my blog reading. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  1. Beautiful blossoms on your neighbors trees Greta, a little ahead of here in the UK I think. A delightful card as well with the soft colours.
